Are You Overspending?
Save on Diapers and Wipes Every Month
Right after you find out you’re pregnant, what do you do? Jump for joy? Call your mom? Jump on Whattoexpectwhenyou’reexpecting.com? Or do you start a budget? One of the first things to come up when budgeting for a baby is the diapers. So many diapers! Perhaps you are a brave soul, treading the waters of cloth diapering (check out this amazing post on cloth diapering, it will make it seem way less scary!). But if you’re like me, you’re trying to figure out how to save on diapers and wipes!
1. Subscribe & Save
I have compared prices from the grocery store, from Costco, and from Amazon. The best prices are through Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program. Most other prices came to about $0.35 per diaper. The only place where I could find prices as low as $0.02/wipe (I’ve been using Huggies Natural Care Unscented) and $0.14 per diaper (right now Genny’s in Huggies size 5) is through Amazon’s Subscribe & Save.
To use this service, you will need to be a member of Amazon Prime. You can either skip down and read about Amazon Family, or you can go with a regular Prime account. There are two options here: Prime Discounted Monthly Offering account for $5.99/month or regular Amazon Prime for $99/year. Last year, we saved over $300 with Amazon Prime, so the savings really makes it worth it.
Another great thing about this subscription service is that you don’t have to worry about going out to buy diapers. However often you like, they will arrive at your front door every month! Talk about convenient. Have you tried lugging a giant box of diapers around a grocery store with a 1 year old?
2. Amazon Family
Through the Amazon Family program, you get all the benefits of Amazon Prime PLUS more! In addition to free 2-day shipping, unlimited Prime streaming music, and access to Prime video streaming, you will receive a 20% discount on diaper subscriptions. As an added bonus, Amazon Family members also receive exclusive discounts and coupons on select items. If you want to save on diapers, this is a great place to start!

3. Registry completions
Most places you register will give you an added bonus for completing your baby registry. Amazon will give a 10% discount for registry completions. If you add diapers to your baby registry, these will count as well! You don’t even need to buy them for your newborn. You can stock up or use the discount on some diapers for siblings. If you’re going to really save on diapers, you’ve got to get creative!
4. Prime Now
With Amazon Prime, you can sometimes have the option to forgo the Free 2-day shipping in exchange for some Prime Now $$. Prime Now is basically Door Dash but includes local grocery stores, restaurants, and businesses in participating cities. Check to see if your zipcode is covered, and take advantage of that free money to save on diapers AND save yourself a trip to the store.

Those are great tips for saving on diapers! Considering how many babies go through, it certainly adds up fast.
This was so helpful!! Thank you so much for sharing this!
It’s so crazy the amount of money I started saving once my son was potty trained. The diaper stage really leaves moms, especially single moms dirt poor! I will share this post with all of my single moms. Thank you for sharing and evening the wealth gap for those with financial difficulties!
Diapers and wipes are SO expensive! Thanks for these tips!
I used to coupon for diapers and saved a bunch, but not its too hard to get out with all the littles so these are great resources. thanks!
Wow! We pay about 50cents per diaper with the honest subscription. I will need to investigate this more!
What a great resource! I have Amazon and I have not signed up for the savings! I need to- any little bit helps. Thanks for the tips girls (and I totally called my mom when I found out I was pregnant haha!)
So helpful! I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to stock up on diapers before my baby is born so this post is perfect timing.
I definitely never realized that I should be using Prime to save on diapers! I have 2 in diapers, and I seriously need to try this to save money. Awesome tips!
There are so many ways to save on diapers and wipes on Amazon!
Great advice. Saving on essentials is so important.
Good tips! However my son grows so fast, it’s not practical to subscribe anymore because the next month he would need another size.
You can always change your subscription though, there’s no “locked in” subscription. That’s what makes it great! 🙂
I love amazon prime! We were able to save so much by using the 10% registry and it stays open for so long so you can have time to figure out what you really need!
Great tips! Since I have twins I need to save anywhere I can!
We’ve just been debating about dropping our prime membership and now I’m not sure! Lol great tips
I’m a day late and (a lot of) dollars short as my babe is potty training now. Great tips. I never know when I’m getting a good deal.
I love the idea of saving money! I use Amazon and love it! Great post
I loved Amazon Prime. They are great for diapers. It helped us so much during our first two pregnancies!
oh wow! I had no clue there was so much savings using Amazon! So good to know. While I don’t have any children who use diapers anymore, I do take care of a little guy who does, I will be sharing this with his parents! thanks for the post!
Wow I didn’t even think about saving with the registry. These are some great ideas!
Prime for diapers is a great idea! And 15 cents per diaper is a GREAT price. Thanks for sharing!!
I really need to try the Amazon subscription with my next baby! So much easier it seems too
I switch to cloth diapers with last pregnancy I got mines on Amazon Alvababy cloth diapers https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C7JW3GQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s02?ie=UTF8&th=1
I absolutely love the subscribe & save through Amazon! Not only does it save money overall but I also don’t have to constantly leave my house every time I run out of diapers. It’s been a complete life changer!
Great ideas. I’m a Prime member but did not know about the Amazon Family discounts so thank for sharing these tips!
These are great tips! I didn’t know half of these I wish I had known
You know, I’ve heard a lot about Amazon family accounts, but I never really thought about getting it. We use my mom’s prime account, I hope I will be able to get it through that! I just always get them from Sam’s club 😬
Yes! I need to do this but it makes total
sense now! Thanks for breaking all the costs down 👍
Great tips! We love our Amazon Prime accounts because of how much we save. And it’s so great for families!
I remember when I finally potty trained. The amount of money I began to save was amazing. I was actually able to buy new underwear for everyone lol!
Thanks so much for sharing! For my next baby it will be Amazon all the way!!
This is so great! I wish I knew all of this when my son was a baby!
Thank you for doing the leg work on this! We use currently Costco diapers which are a little more but we’ve had a lot of trouble with diaper rashes and those work best for our daughter 🤷♀️. But we used Amazon subscribe and save with our first two kids and it was a great deal!
I really loved your analysis. Also, one doesn’t need to rush to supermarket as soon as they run out of the stock. Your article is really useful for first-time moms.
Wow! These are so useful tips. Diapers and wet wipes indeed cost a bomb. I used cloth diapers at home and disposable ones when we were to go out.
Such a gteat idra to save money on baby essentials. Amazon helps a lot in savings. Thanks for sharing
Great tips! Its is so very important to save on things which we need so often and are expensive. Getting diapers in bulk definitely saves few bucks which can be used for something important.Thanks
hey this was an extremely useful post. My elder one is past the diapers age , but the younger one is still on diapers. This information will come in handy.
I remember how costly diapers used to be. This is really helpful for new mom’s. Coupons and discounts are always good.
It’s true subscribing the diaper does help in saving money… I too have subscribed for them.. Thanks for sharing the details
