The Cost of Diapers Online from Low to High

With our two older kids we relied mostly on store brand disposable diapers from Kirkland and Target because we figured that was probably the best way to save money. To be fair, the best way to save money would have been to actually use the set of cloth diapers I bought when I was pregnant with Eva since they would have lasted through both kids, but sadly I have flaked out twice so far on the cloth diaper front. Yes, they are washed and waiting for Baby 3, but since I know myself well (and last minute trips to the store are a huge pain with all the kids) I thought I should probably take some time to look into diaper prices online.

Diaper price comparison

Here’s a comparative list of prices right now for diapers in size 1. I’m only looking at disposables here because the cost of cloth depends on how much it costs to wash them, which detergent you’re using, which brand you went with, etc. These costs are from low to high not including any coupons that are available.

Note: the prices are based on free shipping which is available to Amazon Prime members, people with a Target REDcard, and people with a Costco membership.

The Honest Company
Price per diaper: $0.45
Pack of 44 diapers in skull print. The Honest Company Diapers are ultra absorbent, eco-friendly, extra soft, hypoallergenic, free of chlorine processing & risky additives (like fragrances, lotions, and latex).

Of course, cheaper isn’t always better when it comes to diapers and some people find that their kids have reactions to certain diapers which is why the ones made for sensitive skin tend to be a little more pricey. That being said, I was surprised that buying store brands in bulk didn’t mean that I was paying the cheapest possible price. A few cents isn’t much but when you think about the fact that babies use more than 2000 disposable diapers in the first year alone, those nickels can add up quickly.

(To spell it out for you, at five cents per diaper for 2000 diapers, you’ll spend an extra $100 in the first year alone. Blah. Those cloth diapers are looking better, am I right?)
