If money is tight, a one-bedroom apartment is an option you should take for now. It's practical, too, and you get to spend time with the baby at night. At this day and age, it's normal for a family to sacrifice certain comforts in order to budget money for a month. One's personal budget changes when one has a family. Don't worry about space first. Worry about earning extra income so that in the *ture, you and you family can move to a larger space.
