Coupons are always a good strategy for shopping. Check online, newspaper ads, and the manufacturer website. You can also Google to see if there are coupons available for the diapers you are looking for. Your brick-and-mortar store (such as a grocery store) may also have an app with coupons you can check and clip right in the app.

Store brands

I have a few brands that I felt were the best, but you can find similar diapers that are store brands, which are much cheaper. If you aren’t having much luck with store brands, you can strategize. For example, use Pampers at nighttime as your overnight diaper, and go with store brands during the daytime.

There is a big savings involved in going with store-brand diapers or Amazon Mama Bear brand, so it is worth making the change.

Rewards programs

You’re going to buy diapers and wipes anyway, so why not look into rewards programs?

Some brand names such as Huggies or Pampers have rewards programs that pay you back in a variety of rewards. Whether this is a baby item or a gift card, every little bit counts!

Diaper bank & food pantries

If you’re in a pinch and really need diapers bad, check out the National Diaper Bank Network or your local food pantry. The National Diaper Bank works to ensure every family in need gets clean dry diapers and other basic needs. Food pantries also usually collect baby and hygiene needs, so if you are struggling, reach out to see what they can offer.

Amazon Subscribe & Save

Amazon Subscribe & Save is a good way to get diapers delivered right to your doorstep, and usually for cheaper than if you drove to a store to buy them. This relieves a lot of the hassle of being a new parent and having to shop in the store, plus the more you add to your subscription, you get more of a discount. Throw in some diapers, wipes, and a few other essentials, and you can maximize your savings.

While you’re on Amazon, check out Amazon brand Mama Bear products, which are an additional savings compared to big brand names.

Diaper Subscriptions

A diaper subscription will save you money as well as the hassle of lugging diapers and wipes home from the store with a newborn baby in tow.

There are many diaper subscriptions, from Dyper to the Honest Company, which has a diaper and wipe subscription will help make sure you stay stocked up on essentials.

Cloth diapers

Cloth diapers can be a good alternative to disposables, and are also a great alternative that is more eco-friendly.

However, it does take a larger initial investment and some extra work of washing the diapers. You will likely want to purchase a cloth diaper sprayer. Also be sure that you use a cloth diaper laundry detergent specifically designed for cloth diapers, so that you can maximize the use and lifespan of your cloth diapers.

Overall, are many great reasons to consider using cloth diapers.
