Planning Ahead for Baby


I'm not pregnant yet but after we get married we will be TTC and I'm just curious if any mommies out there had any suggestions about how they found affordable child care. We both work full time but he is off 3 days of the week which helps but we will still need it for the days when we both work. My Family is out of the question and his family is 2.5 hours away and I don't like Craigslist and Mommy and Me groups are years away so any suggestions appreciated.
