    Kids in the District and Alexandria, Va., are some of the least spoiled in the country, according to a new report.

    Bundle.com released a new infographic of which cities parents spend the most on their children, as well as the cities that spend the least on their kids. The website examined spending by households with children at stores that sell toys, clothing and other services for tots, kids and teens.

    Not surprisingly, New York City parents spend the most cash on their children, shelling out nearly double the national average. Brooklyn came in second place, followed by Miami.

    On the flip side, Alexandria placed No. 8 on the list of cities that spoils their children the least, followed closely by Washington D.C.

    The average middle-income family spends roughly $12,000 on children-related expenses in their baby's first year of life, according to parenting.com. By the time the baby turns 2, that amount increases by more than $500.
