I've had success with the Target brand, but before we discovered those I went to BJ's (wholesale store) and bought diapers cheap...I'm sure Costco, etcetera, has them too. Also, diapers.com usually has discounts available and free shipping over orders of $50 I believe. Good luck!

Are cloth diapers out of the question? I have used gdiapers for a year now and have not turned back to regular diapers since, no folding, soaking, pinning or diaper rashes! Not to mention they look super cute. I figure at eight to ten diaper changes a day I save approx 700 a year this does not include the cost of washing them or the detergent. I keep a small swing lid covered trash can in my bathroom and keep what's called a "dry pail" baby pees I change the cloth insert replace with a new cloth insert reusing the cloth outside cover. I use all free clear detergent with no frantic softener, or bleach. I clean the cloth every other day in the washer on hot, not to mention its so easy my husband changes them no problem. Yes special detergent is required and boiling pre washed cloth liners about once a month is important to strip the cloth of detergent and ammonia build up, it's totally cost effective way to diapering. i started one gdiaper cover at a time, birthdays and holiday gifts from family i asked for more cloth diapers the best gifts ever! They also have paper inserts to go over the cloth so if baby poops simply pull out the paper liner flush poop down the toilet and out dirty cloth in hamper and boom done! The biodegradable inserts which are thrown away are more expensive than disposable diapers. It's certainly a cost saver, as long as baby pee and poop don't completely gross you out, it's worth the time and effort. Gdiapers.com was the site I referenced, there are facebook sites where you could buy used covers, I wouldn't recommend buying the liners used due to not knowing what condition they are in. Gdiapers also has a number to call if you are having leakage or other problems. I had leakage issues at night until I learned you could put two together for extra absorbency at night! The best investment for sure!

TARGET BRAND!!! i was weary when I first tried them because generic brands dont typically have the greatest rep when compared to the name brand, but wholy moly these diapers are amazing. i traded in all my $25 boxes of huggies and got the same count TARGET BRAND for $16! they really do work amazing!

surprisingly to me, the cheapest way i found for disposables was toys r us brand, and they are ultra sensitive, without chlorine, without advertising or selling as such (our little one is extremely sensitive and was cloth diapered until potty training time except for when going out on trips or when at families, cause they won't all use the cloth diapers) if your willing to try cloth diapers, than econobum by cottonbabies are very inexpensive. 3 covers, and 12 inserts for about $50.

I'm in Queensland, Australia. We have a place called the "Nappy Warehouse". It sells all brads of nappies including Huggies, Snugglers, Baby Love, Target, Natures Own all at much cheaper prices than the normal shops. They are all factory seconds that either had a fault box or the box had a nappy missing. The Nappy Warehouse also sells bottles, formula, wipes, toilet paper etc

I use a cheaper brand of nappy during the day like snugglers, select or baby love and at night I use a more expensive brand (huggies) at night as they are more absorbent and last the 12hrs my son sleeps at night. I also buy in bulk when nappies are on special, this has saved me alot of money.

I used Whitecloud at walmart with my oldest daughter when she was in Diapers she is now 9. For some reason they dont sell them at our walmart anymore. I have a daughter who is 2 and we have been using Parents choice from Walmart and I love those. Check those out they are 13.00 for a box of 80+.

Cloth diapers will save you a TON of money and are so much easier than you realize! I use the old school cloth diapers with pins and plastic pants, but I know they make cloth diapers with velcro that look and function like a disposable diaper, but you wash and reuse time and again! Then, you can "supplement" with disposables if you wish, I do. My daughter uses disposables at night or days when we'll be out and about for many hours as I don't like lugging around more than 1 or 2 cloth diapers in the diaper bag. Good luck!!!
I prefer Huggies. But I try to buy in bulk, whenever possible. Huggies vs. Store Brand, I was spending more time changing leaked on clothes, more laundry and the constant "where is that smell". Huggies are cheaper than Pampers, and they have a better reward program. If you sign up, they send you coupons regularly.

I think wal mart diapers are the best bet! u know parents choice brand. its much cheaper. & i find the quality to be pretty well.
i have always gotten parents choice. i get 140 diapers for $27. cant get any better then that. I see people buying the expensive name brand and im like what the heck save $10 get ones that are just as good.
I was a bit skeptical about buying no frill pampers....but I have since found they work just as well and maybe even better... I myself like "Parents Choice" you can find them in Walmart.....for me they are best used during the night for my son because with the other pampers (luvs,huggies, pampers) he wakes up wet... and you know that can be a headache ... so good luck to you on your quest....

I have used Costco brand diapers with both of my kids and done really well with them. They come in a larger quantity and are cheaper. If you don't like those Costco sells the major brands for slightly cheaper because you buy in bulk.

I love LUVs too. O placed an order with Diapers.com. I ordered Legos. I don't have a child in diapers anymore but it was either buy diapers or pay shipping so I bought diapers.
They have a pretty good deal going there. Check it out!
Also if there is anyone here with baby weight to lose I finally lost mine and would love to show you how! It feels so good to have it gone! Check my story on this site! www.kristymedina.com

I use Huggies, have tried Pampers but they didn't work.. I have heard that LUVs, Sam's Club brand and Costco brand are good (though I have never tried any of them). They may be worth trying. Hope you find a better, cheaper diaper!

I think the Parents Choice brand diapers work great!! There isnt any other cheap brand other than Scott's Foods grocery store diapers called Comforts that work that well. Overall, Parents Choice is the best and cheapest. When I worked in a doctors office a medical assistant told me to try those and I have for years now. Hope this helps!!

From what I understand, one kid's perfect diaper is another's worst. For us, Target is our favorite. Hy-Vee and Sam's are also pretty good.
If you're tight on $$$, go out and buy a cheap flannel sheet set at a used stuff store, and make your own! It doesn't take long, and they're much more affordable. I love my prefolds that I made. There's a lot of satisfaction in knowing YOU made them! ;-)

I use the parents choice brand from wal-mart and they work pretty good for cheap diapers. they have alot of different sizes to! sure everyone would like to use pampers or huggies but they r just to expensize.if u have a wal-mart near by i would try those
Megan - posted on 12/19/2009
I have no choice now really but to use Pampers. They are the only ones that seem to hold what my daughter puts out lol. Target worked well also for her. My friend that uses huggies occasionally buys the parents choice from walmart when she is low on funds. I used to use luvs but they started fitting my daughter funny as she started growing more and thus caused leaks here and there. I would say try luvs (they are made by the same company that makes Pampers, Proctor & Gamble) but they are a lot cheaper than Pampers and Huggies. Otherwise I would suggest trying maybe Dollar General brand, or maybe KMart brand if there is one around you. I haven't heard anything bad about those brands.
