How do you stockpile diapers and wipes?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To build a wipes and diaper stockpile without wasting money, here’s what I suggest:

1. Buy at least one box for each diaper size: Before your baby arrives, make sure to purchase at least one box of diapers in each size. This way, you’ll have enough to get started without overbuying. Keep in mind that babies grow quickly, so they may outgrow certain sizes faster than expected.

2. Buy extra diapers for sizes 1, 2, and 3: Diapers in sizes 1, 2, and 3 tend to be used the most during the first year. To be prepared, consider buying a few extra boxes in these sizes. This will help you avoid running out and having to purchase diapers at full price when you need them the most.

3. Plan to continue building your diaper stockpile after your baby is born: Once your baby arrives, keep an eye out for diaper sales and promotions. Take advantage of these opportunities to stock up on diapers in larger sizes as your baby grows. This way, you can gradually build your stockpile without having to buy everything at once.

4. Buy wipes whenever you see them on sale: Wipes are an essential part of diaper changing, so it’s always a good idea to have a stockpile of them as well. Whenever you come across a sale or promotion for wipes, grab a few packs. Wipes don’t expire quickly, so you can buy them in bulk without worrying about them going to waste.

5. Consider using cloth diapers and reusable wipes: If you’re open to using cloth diapers, this can be a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option. Investing in a set of cloth diapers and reusable wipes can save you money in the long run, as you won’t need to constantly purchase disposable diapers and wipes.

Remember, every baby is different, and their diaper needs may vary. It’s always better to have a little extra than to run out. By gradually building your stockpile, keeping an eye out for sales, and considering reusable options, you can save money while ensuring you have an ample supply of diapers and wipes for your little one.
