Ok guys I could get the solution with a spend of \$32
Consider the families as denoted by their first letters as follows : Side1 (f, m, s, d, b) and Side2 (f', m', s', d' b')

Here is the sequence to follow :
1) s,d,b moves from Side1 to Side 2
Cost incurred = \$6

2) s', d', b' moves from Side2 to Side1
Cost incurred = \$6

3) f, m, b' moves from Side1 to Side 2
Cost incurred = \$10

4) f', m' , b' moves from Side2 to Side1
Cost incurred = \$10

Total cost incurred = \$ 6+6+10+10 = \$32

But from wolgang's post (post #16), he says ----

The total sum is 33\$ for the both two families( i.e.the money ,33\$,are devided between them,...somehow...)
The boats driver must be always on his boat.
The boat can take only four persons each time( no more and no less),i.e.the boat driver and exactly three persons.
Each baby must be accompanied with ,at least,one person of his own family.
