Scunthorpe-area mums spend almost £1,000 on preparing for a new baby
MUMS-to-be in the Scunthorpe area spend almost £1,000 on average when preparing for a new baby, according to a new survey.
And three quarters of the people polled said they thought they had wasted their money on the wrong products.
The survey, by the clothing chain Matalan, revealed mums in the Yorkshire and Humber region spend an average of £939.19 on preparing for a new arrival.
Of the 1,000 people surveyed, 74 per cent said they overbought and bought useless products because they were excited at having a new baby and wanted to make sure they had everything they could need.
