Diapers Are Expensive

Diapers can get expensive, especially since you will likely be buying them for years. To help keep your costs down, it's important to get a good price? But, how do you know what a good price is? How do you know if you are really getting a good deal on the jumbo pack or diapers or if you would be better off using your $1 off coupon on a small pack. The best way to compare prices across brands is to look at a price per diaper.

Of course, the price per diaper depends on the size.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Newborn Diapers

In general, the smaller the size, the cheaper the diaper. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case with newborn diapers. However, your little one won't be in newborn size diapers for long.

Pampers/Huggies price per diaper - 21 cents to 23 cents per diaper. If I find newborn diapers for under 20 cents per diaper, I would consider it a good price.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 1 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 1 price per diaper - 16 cents is the average price on amazon. If I can find it lower than this, say 12 to 14 cents per diaper, I stock up.

Size 1 diapers fit from about 8 pounds to 14 pounds. Since the price per diaper for size 1 is cheaper than size 2, I would use size one for as long as they fit your little one, even though size 2 diapers start at 12 pounds.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 2 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 2 price per diaper - 19 cents is the average price on amazon and 25 cents on walmart. If I can find it lower than this, say 16 to 18 cents per diaper, I would consider it a good buy.

Size 2 diapers fit from about 12 pounds to 18 pounds.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 3 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 3 price per diaper - 21 cents is the average price on amazon and on target. If I can find it lower than this, say 17 to 19 cents per diaper, I would consider it a good buy.

Size 3 diapers fit from about 16 pounds to 28 pounds.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 4 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 4 price per diaper - 23 cents is the average price on amazon and 24 cents on target. If I can find it lower than this, say 19 to 21 cents per diaper, I would stock up. If I found them as low as 14-16 cents a diaper a would consider it a steal.

Both Huggies and Pampers Size 4 diapers fit from about 22 pounds to 37 pounds. It felt like my little one was in size 4 diapers forever. But, I was happy to keep her in size fours, rather than size fives so I could keep saving a few cents per diaper.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 5 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 5 price per diaper - 26 cents is the average price on amazon and on target. If I can find it lower than this, perhaps 22 to 23 cents per diaper, I stock up. If I found them as low as 16-18 cents a diaper a would consider it a steal.

A Good Price Per Diaper For Size 6 Diapers

Pampers Baby Dry size 6 price per diaper - 32 cents is the average price on amazon and 34 cents on target. I would consider anything under 29 cents per diaper a good deal.

Huggies and Pampers Size 6 diapers fit from about 35 pounds and up. If your kids is under 35 pounds, I would try to keep them in size fives. You will end up saving about 6 cents per diaper - which can really start to add up.
