I have always been a Pampers mom. They never failed me on Zoe, so I never thought to switch with Annie. But last month I was in Costco and finding new ways to save money was on my mind. I came across the Costco diaper section and contiplated the switch. They were so much more affordable, and I have friend who was using them, so I went for it. I bought the Kirkland Signature Premium Diapers, 184 for $39.99 (Costco doesn’t sell Pampers, so buying them at a wholesale price is not an option for me, see previous article on best prices on diapers for Pampers pricing).
I got home and filled in my diaper basket with these new diapers. The first thing that I had to get used to was the feel. They are not as soft as Pampers and they don’t have the scent of Pampers, but Costco diapers have similar tabs as Pampers that are resealable and a good fit.
For the first week – I was sold. Everything was going great. Then she woke up with wet pajamas one morning. I was hoping that this was an isolated experience, maybe she drank more than normal before bedtime. But it happened again and then again.
So I am torn, I love the savings of this option and with 184 in a box, weekly diapers runs have disappeared. But having to deal with leaking diapers in the morning is a pain, and I hate for Annie to be uncomfortable and wet. So, I am going to head out today and buy my trusted Pampers again for nighttime only. I still have half a box left of the Costco diapers…and since I have not had any problems during the day (when I change her diaper more frequently), I am going to try a mix…Costco during the day and Pampers at night. I hope it will satisfy both my goals, keeping my costs down and Annie dry!
Has anyone else gone this route with diapers that they want to share? We would love to hear from you!
