Are you sure you are not running out of diapers every now and then?
Diapers and wipes, among other baby care products, pretty much mark the journey of parenting. In the initial first month at least, all your little angel does is poops and pees, so using a diaper is probably the only hack to allow you some time for sleep or other work or have some peace when you occasionally go for an outing with your baby. Offering respite from changing nappies and bedspreads, diapers and wipes become somewhat indispensable among your other monthly household supplies. So why not ensure you always have them amply stocked, to avoid feeling helpless otherwise!
According to a leading parenting portal, newborns use around 6 to 7 diapers a day on an average. So how do you go about stockpiling your favourite brand of diapers and wipes for your baby such that they suit your pocket as well? A common way to do it is to visit a market which offers discounted goods including diapers (example - Crawford or APMC market in Mumbai) or, keep chasing the right offers on popular online baby product stores (you may not have that luxury of time as a new parent). Both of these options have their own challenges as the most precious thing in your life is now time! If you are not-so-cost- conscious and have plenty of time, you might as well buy from a medical store or a nearby supermarket when you step out for your household supplies (as you can only buy at MRP there). However, that too may not always be feasible when you are at home, tending your baby alone.
An online household goods’ store, www.buyample.com, which claims to offer 20 - 25% on the original MRP of diapers and wipes all round the year subject to you joining their wholesale price club, is an option you might want to check out. They actually offer prices similar to what the wholesalers offer to retailers. At wholesale prices, you might not mind stocking up large packets for a month or more. (Especially after you have already figured out the Diaper and Wipes brand of your choice). Among diapers, they have Huggies and Pampers while for wipes, they have Johnson’s and Himalaya.
In rainy season, it will also save you the hassle of stepping out as you will get them delivered at your doorstep in designated time slots. So do try online, wholesale buying and create a healthy inventory of diapers and wipes for your little one.
