So please tell me how to manage even for my baby 9 months old baby girl expenses including diapers, wipes , baby powder and baby shampoo.
    Thank you in advance.

    First of all 9K will not be enough to handle all the household expenses
    Its almost like 10K per person nowadays to lead a normal life
    and with a baby and all her expenses,I am sure things wont work out with 10K

    Its better u ask your husband to give you more and then decide

    and for the first few months,write down all the expenses(ideally its better to do this every month) and end of month understand where all you have spent and note it down.in that way you ll come to know the unexpected/unwanted expenses and how much would be required to run

    the budget of each family differs and might not be the same

    @OP...
    10K with baby needs is impossible..
    lets take diapers.. pack of 56 pampers XL costs 1270.. lets assume 5 diapers per day.. so for 1 month 150 diapers.. ((1270/56)*150))= 3400 which is 1/3rd of 10K..
