Would the Number of Births Increase if Government Paid Parents?

There are many talks around whether child allowance will reverse fertility decrease. Some believe that a family’s well-being is more important and that it could come into play without it. As some Democratic politicians want child allowance to be put in place to increase the number of childbirths, we need to investigate the situation and discuss the possible outcome.

There are important family policies that provide families to rather focus on decreasing poverty and helping improve children’s health and education. Child allowance can definitely increase the number of births, but can a government afford this?

There has been a lot of research around the world diving into the subject of child allowance and the increase in the number of births. The research has proven to work. But the policy has not made a major difference and the payments are not as effective.

As we all know, having babies is not always the easiest situation to deal with. In this hectic world with busy work schedules and stressful financial times, it can cause difficult situations for families. Just looking at the sleeping schedules of a newborn already proves the amount of work you are adding to an already busy life.

A 6 month old sleep schedule is something to look at regarding the responsibilities of a new parent.

At 6 months old, a baby still needs to sleep approximately 15 hours every day, this includes fitting in 2 or 3 naps during the daytime. But these sleeping routines can be very unpredictable and cause sleepless nights. After 6 months, it’s possible for another sleep regression to develop, making sleeping schedules a nightmare.

It’s important to think about more issues regarding whether more births and more family stress are necessary. Having a baby is always special and might bring a more positive thinking to a family.
