Never run out of diapers again! Avoid an inconvenient mess with these three simple tips that are sure to keep both mom and baby happy. And clean!
Just when I thought I had this motherhood thing figured out, we had an incident that could have set me over the edge–but really just sent me into stitches of laughter.
At the time, our then-youngest was three and potty trained. I was patting myself on the back because we were–hallelujah–through with diapers. Potty training had not come naturally to me, and we were finally done.
I had taken all three girls to the dentist with me. However, I didn’t have any extra diapers with me (because I thought I didn’t need them!).
Lo and behold–my youngest–the one who had potty trained–had an accident and a big one at that!
There were no diapers in my bag, nor had I stashed any away in my car. In the end, I had to throw her undies away and wrap the poor child in a T-shirt and carry her to the car.
My motto in motherhood is to laugh to keep from crying, and that is precisely what I did that day.
But, thankfully, I’ve also learned my lesson. Baby Boy is now 4 months old, and we’re back to square one. You better believe I’m doing all I can not to run out of diapers!
Three things in particular can help you to never run out of diapers.
1. Use cloth diapers.
Yes, they aren’t for everyone. I’m not going to preach to you that you should use them when you have no desire to do so. Using cloth diapers is a personal preference.
While I was a hesitant convert with babies number one and number two (who I started in cloth at the same time), I was a full fledged cloth diaper addict by the time baby number three arrived.
With baby number four I’ve relaxed my stance a bit. Even though I wrote an entire book about cloth diapering (a 200-page manual at that!), I decided early in my pregnancy that I would be a part-time cloth diapering mama this time around.
I use cloth at home, but I use disposables while out.
It’s worked out great, and having cloth around ensures that I never run out of diapers.
2. Shop for diapers in bulk.
I always buy disposable diapers in bulk. There is nothing worse than realizing your baby is sitting in a massive bowel movement and you have no diapers on hand!
Buying in bulk ensures the best prices. Plus, it means I don’t run out of diapers as fast. This saves me time at the store (and gas money to boot!).
Stores like Sam’s Club offers amazing prices on bulk diapers–even on higher-end brands, extra soft, premium brands, like Pampers!
Sam’s Club has an offer right now for $10 off a purchase of 2 Pampers diapers or wipes items, or $18 off a purchase of 3 items (no coupon required!)!!
And Sam’s Club offers services such as Scan & GO and Club Pickup to bypass the register and make stocking up even easier. You can check out with the app, which you can down here for Apple or here for Android. Order your Pampers products on samsclub.com and select Club Pickup to have everything waiting for you when you arrive to the club; you don’t even need to leave your car. This is a lifesaver if you have sleeping kids in the car!
You can also get this offer online by going to the Pampers product page and order Pampers for delivery straight to your door.
3. “Hide” extra diapers around the house and in your vehicles.
One of my tricks to never run out of diapers is that I “hide” them in various areas around my home and in our vehicles as well.
I store them my main diaper bag, my husband’s diaper bag, diapers in a cabinet in our living room, diapers in the baby’s room, diapers stashed under the bassinet in my room, and in a pouch in my car!
The diapers in the car, especially, have come in handy when I’ve forgotten to replenish the diapers in the diaper bag. Having extra diapers “hidden” away helps me to always have somewhere to find them!
How do you make sure that you never run out of diapers? (Or do you?!)
