Do you have a Gerber life insurance policy for your child/children?

If so, do you recommend it? What made you decide to get it? Did you shop around at all before you purchased it? I'm torn as to whether or not we need a life insurance policy for our daughter. I know it only costs a few dollars per month but I wonder if that's where we should be putting our money or if it's a waste. What do you think?

Instead of Gerber life insurance we are opening up a Roth IRA. It is for us but once we hit 65 it will almost be worth a million dollars. Hopefully nothing happens before that. At age 55 you can take a certain amount of $ out with no penalty. i would suggest looking into it!

I think it is a waste of money. Put the money into a savings a account. Or buy insurance for YOURSELF. Term life insurance. Whole life insurance is a scam. Whatever you do, don't buy whole life insurance for your child you will be throwing (or giving) money away.
