My favorite antique store in the state is in Seymour. Seymour Antiques Co. Sooo cool! There's other antique shops there too. The tea place is adorable. It's really nice. Totally underrated town.

But still, if I were OP with a baby on the way, I'd choose renting in Naugatuck so I could save for a house in a place like Seymour when the time comes for schools.

There is nothing wrong with Naugatuck as a place to live. It isn't anything fancy, but it is affordable and safe.

The few people I know who stayed after having children all send them to parochial school.

Others lived there to save money at first and then moved to towns like Middlebury or Watertown when their kids were closer to school age.

I don't know if I would move any further south if your wife will be working in Wolcott for the long haul. I say that from years of experience commuting through the valley to the Waterbury area.

It is way easier to be a dual income family if someone is working close-ish to home most of the time and if I recall correctly you work either on the coast or in the Hartford area.

If schools aren't a concern and you're looking to save some money by cheaper rent , Naugatuck would be ideal IMO. Some of it is nice , some of it is sketchy. I have colleagues who rent there now , they've had no issues in 3 years.
