Need a suggestion about investing in a fund for baby.

Hi, I would like to create a fund (or some kind of investment that grows with the kid) for my little one as a birthday gift. Could you please share some ideas on what are the best investing options for kids. It can be for education or just having a financial security as baby grows.

I have a Rollover and SEP IRA alongside my current 401k.

My Roth account has the lowest balance because historically I've taken the tax deduction for pre tax contributions to the SEP and Rollover.

I understand if I contribute the money to Rollover and then backdoor to Roth, I will pay tax pro-rata based on the contribution percentage of total Rollover/SEP account balance (majority tax on funds that have grown).

Q: Can I open another traditional IRA solely for the purpose of the backdoor?

Got my first regular paycheck at the new job at 145k vs 110k and its not nearly as much more as I thought it would be - is that normal? Feeling discouraged and like I need to make significantly more to really move the needle


Is there a way to accurately estimate take home pay factoring in taxes, pre-tax contributions, post-tax contributions, etc.? I got a significant raise effective in my next paycheck and am trying to adjust my budget accordingly (I.e. increasing 401k contributions). TIA.
