Congratulations, you are going to be a mommy or a daddy. You buy prams and baby seats and mountains of nappies and wonder how on earth you are ever going to care for your baby. If it is advice you are after then this is what you need to know about buying your baby the financial protection it needs.

Also on your to do list is dread disease cover. Serious illness is expensive. Dread disease cover gives you the funds you need to cope with serious illness without compromising your family’s finances.
