On average, a newborn goes through approximately 10 diapers a day. When you multiply this number by two or three years, it adds up to hundreds (even thousands) of dollars worth of diapers per child. That being said, I have good news! There are several ways to get free diapers for your baby. Consider the following options.
Have a Diaper Party
A diaper party is traditionally a baby shower of sorts for a father-to-be. Guests are asked to gift the host with whatever brand and size diapers they choose. It’s a good way to stock up on diapers in multiple sizes. This isn’t just for the father-to-be, either. This is a great way to shower the mom-to-be also!
National Diaper Bank Network (http://nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org/)
The goal of the National Diaper Bank Network is to help low-income parents keep their children clean and dry. At the time of this writing, NDBN has distributed more than 98 MILLION diapers, by way of hundreds of local chapters across the country. Visit the website for more information.
Contact Diaper Companies
Thanks to the convenience of email, it’s super-simple to contact diaper companies to request free or high-value diaper coupons. Why are they willing to honor your request? It’s simple. These companies rake in millions, due to brand loyalty. In theory, once parents decide on a brand, chances are they’ll stick with it until their child is potty trained.
Pampers, Luvs, Huggies and Goodnights all give away diaper coupons and various other goodies to those who register on their sites. It’s definitely worth the little time it takes to do this.
Sometimes you can run across some valuable, high dollar coupons for diapers. If you can catch some of those diapers on a deep clearance and stack those manufacturer coupons with a store coupon, you just might luck up on some free (or super cheap) diapers.
These are just a few ways to obtain free diapers. You probably won’t acquire enough of them to cover the whole time you need them. But, every diaper you get for free means one less you have to pay for and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that!
