Psst, want to skip the small talk?
I wish someone warned me about just how many baby wipes I would be using across my baby’s early years.
It’s a lot!
And each and every square that you use costs you money.
You might as well call them money wipes.
Let’s do some quick mommy math.
The national geographic found that over the first years of life, the average American baby will wear 3,796 diapers.
That’s 3,796 diapers that need changing. And if you use 4 baby wipes per diaper change. That means you will use over 15,000 baby wipes over the course of your baby’s life.
And that doesn’t even take into account all the other times you use baby wipes.
- Cleaning up poop explosions? Baby wipe.
- Cleaning up pee? Baby wipe.
- Wiping down drool covered fingers? Baby wipe
- Removing baby food from cheeks? Baby wipe
So this figure is likely higher again.
Your baby is literally pooping his way through your money. And he doesn’t care – he just stares at you with that smug little face.
Yeah… That’s the look. He knows exactly how much you are spending on his booty.
While baby wipes are not the first product you think of when trying to make savings, they could actually be costing you a small fortune.
Using the 15,000 baby wipes figure. If you buy regular single packs of baby wipes, you can pay 6 cents per wipe or more. If you are keeping track in your head, you will realize that you will spend over $900 dollars on baby wipes during your baby’s messy years.
And if you have twins? You can double that cost.
But if you can get that cost down to 2 cents per wipe, you will only spend $300 over the same period.
That’s a saving of $600!
As you can see, chasing down low-price baby wipes is essential if you are on a budget.
And I’m going to let you in on the secret to doing just that.
It’s so easy. You don’t have to stalk every sale. You don’t even have to clip every discount coupon. You only have to do one thing…
Buy baby wipes in bulk!
I saved over $500 on my baby wipes bill in my first year just buy upping the quantity I bought each time. And those savings went towards an electric wine cooler (hopefully you are wiser with your savings).
And the best part is:
You can do the same!

Is there anything else you can do to save money on baby wipes?
There certainly is!
Amazon offers discount coupons on baby wipes. Simply click the coupon just below the price and the savings are automatically added to your cart.
Can’t see your favourite brand? Don’t worry. The specials change weekly. If you keep checking back you will eventually come across your favourite brand on sale for a special low price. And when that happens, it’s time to stock up!
The only downside to stocking up on bulk baby wipes is that you will need to find somewhere to store them until a time when they are needed.
But really, it’s a small price to pay when you are considering the potential savings to be had. Economically, buying baby wipes in bulk just makes sense.
And perhaps the biggest advantage of having an abundance of cheap baby wipes on hands is that you won’t be so thrifty with their use. If your baby has let rip the mother-of-all-poop-explosions then you won’t feel so guilty about using extra baby wipes to clean it up.
