How Much Diapers Cost

Disposable Diapers Add Up! Unit Price of Popular Brands

Disposable diapers aren't easy on the budget! Newborns can soil up to 10 diapers a day, and though the number normally decreases as children grow, lots of parents still change their kiddos every two to three hours. On average, one diaper (newborn size) costs about 26 cents with green and conventional nappies at similar price points. Check out these figures based on newborn jumbo packs.

  • Pampers Swaddlers — 36 count ($10.99) = 30 cents per diaper
  • Huggies Supreme Little Snugglers — 36 count ($9.99) = 28 cents per diaper
  • Luvs — 38 count ($7.99) = 21 cents per diaper
  • Seventh Generation — 40 count ($10.99) = 27 cents per diaper
  • Earth's Best — 40 count ($11.99) = 29 cents per diaper

This is really interesting! It's a tremendous expense as it adds up. I just calculated tampons for the heck of it and they are about $.17 to .20 cents each. Hygiene ain't cheap.
