How to handle baby care with a flexible spending account
When it comes to baby health, your Flexible Spending Account can definitely be handy. You can use your FSA for a lot of different purposes - whether it's for breastfeeding, or treating baby's colds and fevers, for proper sun care for your child, and so much more.
If you're expecting, congratulations! If you already have a little one, congratulations! No matter what the timeline, an exciting time awaits you! As you're getting ready for baby's arrival, you've prepared as best you can. Maybe you read many baby (health) books, asked for advice from friends and family, and consulted with doctors to make sure your baby's arrival goes smoothly.
