We all know parenting isn’t the cheapest thing in the world. On average, middle-class parents spend over $220,000 on their children from birth to 18 years old. But did you know you can expect to pay at least $600 on just disposable diapers in just the first year alone (if you are lucky!)? By the time you add up all of the other expenses newborns entail it’s a small fortune to some. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can lessen the diaper burden.
Don’t Forget About Newspaper Coupons
Some people think couponing is old school. Well, let me tell you it is not! If you know how to do it right you can save a ton of money on diapers this way. There are even ways to get name brand diapers for under 5 bucks!
Be sure to keep an eye out for this Sunday’s newspaper (Aug. 14, 2016) for an insert from P&G with a Luvs coupon offering $2 of any one diaper pack. This coupon can be used at any mass, discount or grocery store where Luvs Diapers are sold to save you some moola!
Buy Quality Diapers
There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to a sopping wet mattress and crying baby. Especially when you are half asleep. Luckily, this is something that can be prevented.
Buying quality diapers like Luvs can save you the headache of cleaning up a mess at 3am and even money! Better quality diapers have better absorption which means less leaks and unnecessary diaper changes.
Luvs has super absorbent leakguards and nightLock plus™ (its largest absorbency area ever) to keep your baby dry and comfortable all night long. If you aren’t satisfied with the leakage protection of Luvs, they’ll refund your money!
