5 Tips on on Dipers.

1. Reflect on the pros and cons of disposable training pants. These pants are essentially diapers that look like underwear. They work well and make it easier to clean up accidents, but they pretty much do the same job as diapers for as much as 15 extra cents a pop. If you do decide to use these pants as underwear, make sure your child has mastered using the toilet first. That way the pants could come in handy if your child still needs a little extra protection overnight.

2. Hunt down diaper coupons. Look for theChoose small diapers in big boxes. Opt for the smallest possible size that fits your child well, and then buy that size in a large container. More diapers will fit inside the box that way, and you’ll spend less money per diaper.

3.Cloth or disposable? This question can cause as much angst for some parents as the “paper or plastic?” question in the grocery check-out line. You could definitely save money over time by going with cloth diapers and washing them yourself. Many parents reject this route, however, citing the inconvenience involved.

4.Be open to store brands. If you, like many parents out there, decide to use disposable diapers, don’t feel compelled to buy a premium name brand. A recent Consumer Reports test revealed that store brands of disposable diapers performed exceedingly well. Costco’s “Kirkland Signature” brand and Wal-Mart’s “White Cloud” brand earned especially high marks. By going with a store brand, you can save about 10 cents a diaper, or nearly $200 a year.

5. Buy in bulk in person or online. Considering how many diapers you’re using in a given week or month, shopping in bulk really can help you save. It could be well worth the membership fee to join a warehouse club such as Costco or Sam’s Club. You also can search for diaper deals online at sites such as Amazon.com, drugstore.com and CVS.com.
