Day 1: How to Get Free Diapers and Wipes

Today is day 1 and I will discuss how to get free diapers. In the video, I went into detail on 3 ways to get free diapers but if you keep reading this post you will learn many more ways to get free diapers. There are several ways to get free diapers. According to Baby Center’s baby calculator, disposable diapers will cost $1,140 for the first year. I will show you how to cut the cost significantly.

How to get free diapers

How to Get Free Diapers and Wipes

  • Sign-up for Diaper Loyalty Rewards Programs. Diaper companies like Pampers, Huggies and many more have loyalty programs where you can gain points toward free diapers. When you sign up for the pampers reward program you don’t have to use a receipt. The box of diapers usually has a code on the inside and all you have to do is enter the code in the Pampers app to gain reward points. For Huggies, a receipt is needed. All you have to do is upload a photocopy of the receipt showing that you purchased Huggies brand diapers or wipes and you will get points toward free diapers. Huggies also give you several opportunities to gain reward points. Sometimes all you have to do is take a short quiz or watch a short video to gain points and they rack up rather quickly. Diapers.com have a refer a friend program where you can earn points by referring your friends to purchase their diapers online.
  • Get Free Samples. When I was pregnant, I signed up for every program that offered me free baby samples and they almost always include diapers. Unfortunately, my email inbox exploded but it was worth it because I got tons of free stuff. If you register for Target Baby then you will get a bag full of free baby samples with diapers included. Amazon and Babylist also gave me a free gift box as well. When I was shopping at Motherhood Maternity, I signed up for their email list and they also gave me a free gift bag that included diapers and much more.
  • Take Online Surveys. Amazon is the cheapest place to buy diapers but there are ways that you can maximize your savings by earning Amazon gift cards. This is where Swagbucks comes in. There are many ways to make money by taking surveys beyond taking a survey for direct cash. Swagbucks is free to join and you automatically get a $5 bonus if you earn 2,500 SBs in your first 60 days. Sometimes they will give you free SBs just for being a member. You can redeem your SBs for cash through PayPal or as a gift card through a variety of retailers such as Amazon.
  • Use cloth diapers. This is not free but it definitely is a cheaper option. Even if you are very much pro disposable diapers you can still reap the benefits of having a few cloth diapers. Cloth diapers really aren’t what they use to be in the older days. Many of them are just as easy to use as disposable diapers. I bought two cloth diapers from gDiapers and with them, all you need is disposable inserts. These cloth diapers really came in handy when I didn’t realize that we were out of disposable diapers and it was 10 o’clock at night and I didn’t feel like going out to the store to buy more diapers. I would just grab the cloth diaper cover and put a disposable insert inside and fasten the diaper just like you would a disposable one. I found that those cloth diapers were much more absorbent than disposable diapers and it would last all night. In the morning, I would just throw away the disposable insert and I would either put a fresh insert inside, or if I went to the store I would put on a disposable diaper.
  • Elimination Communication. This is a way to reduce the number of diapers that you use thus saving you more money. Once you start to notice your baby’s bathroom patterns then instead of waiting until they need a diaper change you can simply place them on the potty and when they are done you will put the same clean diaper back on. I have known many people to try it out and it works.
  • Ask for coupons. Just like you should sign-up for your favorite diaper company’s loyalty program, you can also just reach out to them and ask them for coupons.
  • Check the National Diaper Bank Network. The National Diaper Bank Network is a non-profit network that assists low-income families and they have chapters all over the country. You can reach out to your local chapter for assistance.
  • Check out the Honest Diaper Company. You can get free diapers by signing up for a free trial with the Honest Company and they will send you a free sample of diapers. You will get 7 patterned diapers and 10 wipes totally free if you cancel before the 7 days are up.
  • Have a diaper party. We got so many free diapers from this one and it was the best thing that we ever did. This was an awesome idea that I got from Pinterest. I convinced my husband to have a guy’s diaper party. At first, he totally didn’t get the concept but didn’t care for the idea. I told him that it is not a traditional baby shower it is basically a party where he would get to hang out with his friends and all they need to do is bring a pack of diapers and wipes when they come. One of our friends hosted the party and they had plenty of food and beer and they played video games and watched a basketball game on TV. They all had a blast. It was the last late-night hang out that he had with his friends before our first baby came. We also had a co-ed shower and he told his friends that coming to his diaper party does not exempt them from coming to the Co-ed baby shower lol. We got so many diapers that they wouldn’t fit in our SUV. We also got more at our Co-ed baby shower. We are very non-traditional. I didn’t have a girls-only shower but I wanted it to be co-ed. We have a few friends that are pitmasters so they smoked brisket and ribs for the big shower and we had lots of cake and cupcakes and even the games were very fun and creative. Between my husband’s diaper party and the big co-ed shower, we had gotten enough diapers to last until she was potty trained. It was unbelievable. This was the best thing we ever did. I didn’t do this when we had our son and we only got enough diapers to last almost through the first year. If you try anything on this list then try having a diaper party in addition to a baby shower. I know that due to COVID, it is hard to have the party that you always dreamed that you would have but there are still many ways that you can stand out and have a party that is just as fun as it is creative. Many people are having drive-by baby showers but one of my friends is particularly a creative one that always finds a way to add her own uniqueness to things. She had a drive baby shower and gave us a 4-hour window to drive by and drop off gifts. She and her husband were all dressed up and they were standing outside of their house as we pulled up. We got out of the car with our masks on and they had door prizes and party favors for coming as well as cupcakes. This was her way of still making the drive by shower fun! After the shower, she gave us all a zoom meeting invite so that we can all watch her open the gifts that she got at the baby shower. It was such a nice personal touch.

Now you know how to get free diapers. I discussed 9 ways to save on diapers and wipes. If you decide to have a diaper party reach out to me and let me know how it goes. I promise you will be so happy when your husband comes home with enough free diapers to last until potty training. Make sure that you check out my next post. Day 2: How to Get Free Baby Bottles.
