I can’t think of a more important expense for parents than diapers. With a newborn baby in tow, it is easy to get carried away with all the cute things you want to buy and forget about the actual cost of these items. There are several options available for new parents that include cloth diapers, disposable diapers, reusable diapers, and hybrid diapers. Here are some tips to help you save money on baby diapers.

1. Manufacturer Coupons and Rebates

One of the best ways to save money on baby diapers is with diaper coupons. There are several baby diaper companies that offer baby diaper coupons, such as Huggies, Pampers, Pull Ups, and Luvs. Click these links to see their latest baby diaper offers:

2. Pay Attention to the Price Per Diaper — Not Package

Very often you'll find "Family Packs" or "Jumbo Packs" of everything from foods to toothbrushes, however just because you are purchasing in abundance doesn't mean you are saving. More often than not, you will only be saving a few pennies, and at times you will even be paying more! Rule of thumb — always check the price per unit, and not per package. The same applies to diapers!

You will usually find a label on the store shelf that gives you the "Price per 100 Count" or similar. Use that metric to compare between diaper package sizes and even between different brands. You'll be surprised at the result!

3. Try Generic Brand Baby Diapers

While it might be enticing to only buy on-brand baby diapers, you will have a good chance at getting baby diapers on sale if you go with off-brand diapers. By off-brand I'm referring to store brand diapers. For example, Target has Up&Up baby diapers, Costco has Kirkland diapers, Walmart has Parent's Choice baby diapers.

Before purchasing these in large quantities, I would suggest testing them on your baby to see if they fit well and don't irritate your child. Additionally, if you decide generic baby diapers aren't for you, many store-branded diapers offer money back guarantees.

4. Diaper Size Matters

When it comes to saving money on baby diapers, you should be aware that as the diaper size gets larger, the more expensive they get. It may not look this way as the diaper packages are usually the same size and similar price, however when you take a look at how many diapers are included in the package, you will notice that as they get larger, they include less diapers in the pack.

One smart way around this is not to rush your baby to larger size diapers before they need them.

5. Store Coupons For Diapers

Many stores, including Walmart, Target, Walgreens and CVS, have coupons which can be used to save more on baby diapers. These diaper coupons can usually be found in the stores circulars, emails and directly on their website.

Very often these diaper coupons can be stacked with manufacturer diaper coupons and rebates, which helps you save even more! So the next time you get those flyers in the mail, look out for diaper coupons!

6. Buy Baby Diapers in Bulk

The next time you find an awesome sale on diapers, stock up! Unlike food, diapers don't have an expiration date. However although manufacturers don't specify a specific expiration date for your diapers, they do recommend you use them within 2 years.

But before running and buying a few years worth of diapers, keep in mind that you may not need too many diapers in the same size, because as your child grows older they will require larger sizes. So I would recommend you buy diapers on sale in several sizes.
