Diapers are one of the single most expensive items you will have to purchase for your new baby. Unlike formula and other supplies you typically have to buy diapers for the first 2 to 3 years of your child’s life. If you don’t come up with a way to save on diapers, you can expect to spend a lot of money. I’m going to give you several tips on how to save money on diapers. Raising kids is expensive and every penny saved counts!
Download Diaper Price Sheet
Make sure you take the time to Download and Print our Diaper Stockpile Price Sheet! This gives you a Guideline of What Price to Pay for Diapers based on the Size and Quality!
Using coupons is probably the best way to save money on diapers. Almost every week you will find coupons for diapers in your Sunday circular. You can also print coupons off the internet. Combine your coupons with sales your store is having and you can almost guarantee yourself a nice savings!
Target often has promotions where you get a $5 gift card for buying select diapers. Combine this promotion with your coupons and now you have a $5 gift card towards wipes, formula or other supplies.
Try Different Brands
Name brand diapers are very expensive! You can easily save money just by being open to other brands. Some store brands are going to offer the same quality at a much lower price. If you have a Costco card, give the Kirkland brand a try. Some other popular store brands to try are Target and Babies R Us.
Purchase in Bulk
Amazon Mom is a great way to purchase diapers in bulk and save money! Amazon Mom gives you free two-day shipping and you will save 20% off your diaper purchase. Make sure to look for diaper coupons on Amazon to stack with your purchase and save you additional money.
Diapers.com is another place where you can purchase diapers in bulk and save. At Diapers.com you will find different promotions on diapers and other supplies. You will also find a large selection of different brand. I highly suggest looking into Amazon Mom and Diapers.com
Watch The Size
Don’t be in a hurry to move your baby up in diaper sizes. The larger the size diaper the less diapers that come in the pack. If your baby still fits great in a size one then don’t move him or her up to a 2 until you absolutely need to. Watch how the diapers are fitting your little one and if you are getting any leaks. If you are getting a lot of leaks it is probably time to move up.
Ask for Diapers
Do you have a friend or family member that has a baby older than yours? If so don’t hesitate to ask them if they have any left over sizes. A lot of times our babies grow out of their current size diapers before the pack in finished. Most moms have no problem giving away any left over diapers they have.
Have a Diaper Raffle
If you are currently pregnant and just searching for ways to save on diapers, this is a good option for you. When you have your baby shower let everyone know you are going to do a diaper raffle.
Every guest is encouraged to bring in a pack of diapers. In return they are entered into a drawing for a prize. This is a great way to really stock up on diapers! It also makes an affordable gift option for your guests.

I’m 19 weeks prego with our first. I’m all about couponing and getting deals, but what I don’t understand is how you can stockpile without knowing what brand will work best for you? I’d love to do Honest Co but at 40 cents a diaper, that’s expensive. A friend advised that I start with cheaper brands and only move “up” if there’s an issue. But what if there is an issue and I have hundreds of dollars of Pampers and then the baby can’t use them for some reason? I’m concerned about having a stockpile that is wasted? Any advice?
If you are concerned with that you may just want to try a brand by purchasing a small package and if you realize it works well you can start stockpiling then even on larger sizes. Maybe even try two brands and see if they both work you can look for great deals on either one. You may find some diapers work better for your child than others.
I’m all about getting the best deals on diapers and making sure my babies are comfy when I had my first born I only bought the best but now that I’m on my second I’ve become alot smarter!just a lil advice all the diapers end up in the garbage anyways lol!just a lil note I love huggies (lil movers)the best! But their expensive best deal I’ve found is at costco!and CVS has good deals for diapers not all the time but u can catch good sales also I didn’t really start using huggies until my second started crawling so I used luvs until then their also cheap and cab usually find coupons in the papers!hope that helps a lil on what to buy but I wouldn’t start a stockpile until you figure out what you like that’s forsure!
I LOVE the Walgreens’ brand diapers (Well Beginnings) and have been buying them ever since my little guy began to reject his cloth diapers (sad day!). He doesn’t leak at all overnight, but he also isn’t as heavy a wetter as my first child who had to have special “overnight” diapers cuz he leaked through EVERYTHING. But the Walgreens diapers are perfect for #2. They work better for him than Pampers and just as well as Huggies, and better than most other store brands (Kirkland and Target do really well too). The best part is that Walgreens usually has their brand on sale at least every three weeks for B1G1 free or 2 for 13 or 2 for 12. Whatever the sale, I have gotten packs for everything between $5-$7 each. Also, when using coupons or sale prices, be sure to calculate the price per diaper. Usually it turns out to be cheaper to buy several smaller packs than the one large box of diapers.
