So, I am due in 5 months, yay me!! All of my friends and family have told me that I should try to start buying diapers, wipes, and things now if I see them on sale. Well, what is a good or "on sale" price for diapers and wipes? What is the best brand of diapers and wipes? what other things should I start buying right now? I am not sure when to start buying things...or what entirely I need.

  • I love LUVs diapers. They seem to hold the best (for me). Wipes I use any kind (usually the cheep refils cause they cost less. I would check the sale ads in your area for stuff on sale and use coupons. I have learned that prices vary depending on where you are. Also a suggestion: When/if you have a baby shower (or even baby gifts at the hospital) you can put on the invitation to please contribue diapers or that it is a diaper shower. (I got lots of diapers that way).

  • Honestly, would wait, save the money that you would be spending on them now, and wait until after you have had the baby. I stocked up before I had my son, and he was alergic to pampers and any off brands like target... The only ones that worked were huggies, and since some of the. Had been bout three four months before, I couldn't return them, I had to give the. Away. Save your money until after your little one is born...

  • I would buy a few different brands but not to many of one size as babys grow fast! some people swear by one brand while others swear by another each individula is different and their needs arenot the same.
    Also think about buying the nursery furnituer, baby bedding and decor. Maternity bras for your self are also very important. A special baby towel and washer are a nice little treat for the little one!

    Good Luck!

  • Have you considered cloth diapers? We love cloth diapering. Even my husband complains about disposables on the rare occasion that we use them.

  • i used pampers newborn for my kids when they were born , but throughout the years ive used every brand thats out there. The cheaper diapers sometimes leak but luvs was decent for the price, so i always stuck with huggies from 6 months on.

  • Start checking freecycle and consignment shops for CLOTH diaper, washcloths, etc. There is no need to waste money every week on disposables
