How to Deal With a Really Bad Diaper Rash (And How To Avoid Them)
The ultimate guide to diaper rashes.
I think you’ll agree with me when I say:
Spending money on diapers stinks.
The average family goes through more than 2500 diapers in the first year, and baby won’t be fully diaper trained until they’re three years old. That’s a lot of money to spend on anything, let alone something that goes in the trash.
Today I’m going to show you how I saved $246.51 on our diaper bill in my son’s first year.
And anyone can do it!
Below are the weekly diaper deals found on Amazon. These are some of the best deals you’ll find online, bar none! I update it weekly with the latest sales, so it’s always up to date.
Here are the Amazon diaper deals of the week: there are some good opportunities to stock up! Please note that these all include the Amazon Family & Prime discounts which usually give you 20% off the listed prices.
I can hear you yelling from all the way over here:
“Please tell me how I can save so much money on diapers!”
You know what? It’s really simple!
First of all, I simply stopped buying diapers from the store. Yep, you heard me. Buying diapers at places like Walmart and Target is no way to do it. Everything baby-related is overpriced at these stores, and that especially includes diapers.
If you don’t buy diapers from the store, where do you get them? Do you go full-on hippy mode or play Diaper Bandit and steal them as you need them?
Nope! There’s a better way… and it’s online.
There is a gift from the diaper heavens in the Amazon Family program.
What is it? It’s their subscription service for parents (any parent, grandparent or caregiver can join).
What’s awesome about Amazon Family is that you qualify for 20% off all diapers as a member! And you get next-day delivery; you’ll literally have them on your doorstep tomorrow if you order today.
It’s a paid program, but there’s a big secret here. The first month is free. And this is what we’re going to take advantage of today.
To go into more detail, we’re taking advantage of the free Amazon Family trial. Regularly, it costs $99 a year and includes an Amazon Prime membership. But you get a free month when you register, and we use this to order our diapers.
An Amazon Mom membership gets you a 15% discount on all diapers, right off the top. It’s really simple to join, and you can do so in about 5 minutes.
Amazon currently has two programs that can save you a total of 20% on the regular price of their diapers: the Subscribe & Save program and the Amazon Mom program. Both of these programs can be an excellent value if you’re buying diapers in bulk.
With these two free programs, you’ll save an additional 20% on your diapers, which are already super-cheap. It’s not hard to see why so many parents buy their Diapers on Amazon these days; it’s an excellent way to save money.
Being an Amazon Family member gives you 15% off the top of diaper purchases. If you want to save the additional 5% on your diapers, you need to “Subscribe & Save.”
This means you sign up for monthly (or whatever you prefer) shipments of diapers, and in exchange for that you get 5% off the price.

Here’s what you’ll look for in the right-side of the screen when looking at diapers:
Just set up whichever shipment you prefer and you’re done! 5% off the top!
Let me start by saying that no one is paying me to say this. I’m simply amazed at how much better and cheaper is is to buy diapers through Amazon as opposed to elsewhere.
Why do I love them so much?
These days, most of the best diapers deals can be found online. Stores like Target & Walmart just can’t compete with online retailers. That sucks for them, but it means super savings for us.
Gone are the days when we had to run to the store to pick up an emergency package of diapers. These days, you can order in bulk online and not only save money, but have them shipped directly to your house.
It’s just incredible how much money you can save by skipping box stores and going online to buy diapers. I’d encourage everyone to consider it!
Here are some things you’ll want to consider before you purchase any diapers; it can make a big difference!
