Ok. For those of you Mommas or Daddys looking to save some dough on diapers…here is my current “best deal.”

{Note: this is only for those of you who use disposable diapers. If you cloth diaper…leave a comment because I’d love to talk to you about it. I’m considering making the switch when Owen is born.}

I currently buy diapers on Amazon and it has really saved us some cash!

Here is the back story on our diapering situation…if you don’t care and just want the facts about how I save money…skip on down friend!

Hudson wears size 3 diapers. I am just going to do all my examples with size 3’s because it is what we use and too complicated to break the savings down in all the different sizes. So if your baby is in 3’s – hip hip hooray for you – because I am doing all the price comparison work for you!

Hudson wears Luvs. I think I said before that I used & loved Pampers in the beginning (size NB and 1) but after that I started using less pricey brands and have been completely happy with them.

So, I’ve tried Pampers, Huggies, Target brand, and Luvs…and here is my opinion from our experience.

Luvs are to Pampers what Target brand are to Huggies.

The fit of Luvs & Pampers are VERY similar. The fit of Target brand and Huggies are VERY similar.

Luvs & Pampers fit BEST on my skinny boy who is always on the move.

  1. Wish AmazonMom existed when we had babies. And cloth…it was so expensive in 2003 that disposables were actually cheaper. Glad there are better choices now. Do I sound old! Talk to Bostwicks and Shopoffs if you are looking into cloth. They both have the same favorite kind and both seem to think it’s quite manageable to do šŸ™‚

    • Good to know…I didn’t realize the Bostwicks used cloth. Thanks Amy! And thanks for the “Before 5IAR” book!! Hoping I can sit down and look through it today!

  2. After I read your post, I immediately went to Amazon and signed up! Should be getting our first shipment in the next few days! Plus, you don’t have to worry about going to the store and hauling it all out of there…it comes straight to your house! That is totally worth it! Carrie had mentioned this, and I actually had forgotten about it. Thanks for all the advice. I love reading what works for you/Hud…to see if it might work for me/Cam too!
