How to sign up for a diaper subscription service and never run out of diapers for your baby again.

Changing diapers isn’t high on the list of things people enjoy about parenting. Some first-time parents worry because they’ve never actually changed a diaper before. Good news: there’s not much of a learning curve. However, I think there are lots of ways to make diapering easy and efficient. So this is the first post in my new series, How To Make Diaper Changes As Pleasant As Possible.
Never Run Out of Diapers
Never running out of diapers instantly simplifies diapering. Imagine opening the top drawer of your changing table in the middle of the night to realize you’re down to your last diaper. Diapers are not the thing you want to be running to the store for when every minute of sleep is precious.
Luckily, there’s a really easy and convenient way to never run out of diapers. Simply subscribe! Enroll in a diaper subscription service and you’ll never have too few (or too many) diapers on hand. I love never having to think about buying diapers. A big box arrives once a month and I’m set.
Diaper Subscription Services
If you have a diaper brand that you already use and love, it will likely be simple to find a way to get them delivered monthly. Diapers are one of those things you can just set and forget. Spend five to ten minutes signing up for the subscription service that’s right for you, then sit back and know that a huge box of fresh diapers is coming to your house once a month.
Amazon Mom Diaper Subscription
If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, you can save up to 20% on diapers through the Amazon Mom program. This can add up to significant savings, particularly if you’re a fan of brand-name diapers like Pampers Swaddlers. If you watch for them, you can often find additional coupons to stack on top of those savings! On top of that, Amazon carries many different brands of diapers and wipes, so it’s generally easy to find your favorites.
I like that subscriptions with Amazon are quite flexible. You can skip a delivery and you will not be charged if you have to many diapers on hand. You may run out of diapers before your next scheduled delivery. In that case, you can often change your delivery date. If the delivery window is too far out, you can always buy a pack of diapers from Amazon Prime at the full price and they’ll be shipped to you in two days.
I used Amazon Subscribe & Save to purchase Pampers Swaddlers diapers for the first eight months of my child’s life. Though I later switched brands, I still use Amazon Subscribe & Save to receive a giant pack of Water Wipes every other month. Amazon is certainly not your only option.
Target Diaper Subscription
Did you know that Target also offers a diaper subscription service? I currently receive Up & Up Diapers through Target’s subscription program at a really amazing price—around $20/month! Target also ships subscription items for free. Though Target doesn’t carry as many brands as Amazon, I really do love and trust the Up & Up brand, even compared to some fancier options.
Honest & Parasol Diaper Subscriptions
You also may have heard of higher-end diaper subscription services like Honest Company and Parasol. These are both eco-friendly brands that feature stylish prints on their diapers. I definitely recommend buying one sample package of these diapers before subscribing to see if you like them. Both companies offer trials.
Honest’s trial includes seven diapers and ten wipes and costs $5.95 shipping. After your trial, you’ll be automatically enrolled in a bundle subscription.
Parasol’s diapers are truly the softest, most luxurious diapers I’ve ever encountered and they meet extremely high environmental standards. The catch is that Parasol diapers are definitely expensive. They cost $70/month, which is three and a half times more than I pay for one month of Up & Up diapers at Target.
The Setup Process
Let’s walk through the set up process together. Signing up for a subscription will only take a few minutes, but you’ll want to have a few things ready before you begin. You’ll want to know your child’s current diaper size and you’ll need your credit card number. If you don’t already have an account with Amazon, Target, Honest, or Parasol, I recommend creating an account first and then going through these steps.
This will take you a few minutes to set up, but after that your diapers will just arrive to your door automatically. It’s really so nice!
