Babies are expensive –- diapers alone can run you $80 a month! If you’re looking to save some dough on baby supplies, now might be the time to consider generic. Although which items are just-as-good and which ones justify the name brand upgrade is highly subjective, here are some of the brands and products our message board members love:
Target: diaper cream, wipes, baby shampoo, baby wash, formula, lotion, diaper cream
Equate (Walmart): diaper cream, gas drops, baby lotion
Parent’s Choice (Walmart): baby wash, baby lotion, wipes, formula
Member’s Mark (Sam’s Club): wipes
Kirkland (Costco): wipes
As far as those budget-busting diapers go, it’s a matter of personal preference. Some find the generic work just fine, while others find them leaky or irritating to the skin. Try them out on your babe and decide for yourself.
