  • I breastfeed, so no money there, and we usually buy the big boxes of diapers & wipes at walmart.. and one big box of wipes usually lasts 2-3 months & I think it costs $17 and diapers, usually we buy 2 boxes a month .. sometimes, and thats around $20 unless we have a coupon .. so anywhere from 20-40$ I am guessing. Depends on the month!

  • I spend a lot. I buy about 6 cans of formula a month between home and day care which adds up to $300 and then I go to Bj's wholesale and buy 1 huge bok of diapers and one huge box of wipes. Wipes about $18 and diapers about $38. Some times I have to buy 2 boxes of diapers....

  • Formula - Kirkland Brand (Costco's Generic) - $11.00 week
    Diapers - Kirkland Brand (Costco's Generic) - $30-$40 month
    Wipes - Kirkland Brand - $11.00 every two months

    So, $85.00 ish a month.

  • well...i use WIC for formula, but she goes through about 10 cans of the 12.9 oz cans a month. i don't remember how mucheach can is though. i use enfamil with iron.

    diapers and wipes.....ummm.....i just spent about 20 not too long ago for a box of diapers. i will probably have to buy one more before the month is out. and wipes i spent just under 10 dollars and will have to buy more before the month is out, so 40 and 20???

    i am not sure how much i spend a month on baby food....let see....about 40 there. and i would probably only spend 5 to 10 on cereal a month.

  • I'm right there with you Angie, I love Costco, but I think we go through 2 cans a week, so it would $20 a week in formula. However, dd is eating more and more solids now, so she's down to about 4 bottles a day, so it's decreasing.
