I don't think you need his consent for childcare. But make it clear that you are open to suggestions for how to reduce child care expenses - can he find cheaper care, or do some care himself?

I thnk consent is only when it is a 'discretionary' expense i.e. some activity/treatment that you can CHOOSE to do or not, and is not strictly necessary for child's welfare.
