Diapering is a necessity of your child’s first years, and a great deal can make it a lot cheaper, since babies start out using about 300 diapers a month. Parents today have more options, and better options, then ever before, so whether you are set on disposable diapers or are considering reusable cloth diapering options, there are definitely deals on great products to be had. If you’re considering cloth diapering, check out the options for both biodegradable and reusable cloth diapering inserts below, or snag deals on both to cloth diaper at home and go disposable at school and on the go. We also found deals on wipes, diaper ointments and creams, diaper disposable units, changing pads, and more.
For our son, born in September 2020, we decided cloth diapering was the way to go. He’s currently still in newborn size diapers, and so far All in One (AIO) and fitted diapers are our favorites! We have a few brands, purchased as a bundle from our local green parenting store, including Grovia AIO, Thirsties AIO, Smart Bottoms AIO, and Luludew fitted diapers. I’m also a huge fan of Grovia’s wipes, which I spray with a spray bottle before using. Currently we’ve only used Boudreaux’s Butt Paste (the green tube is cloth safe) but there are tons of options out there that are safe to use with cloth diapers. We use the Dekor diaper pail with the cloth inserts – I’ve used many diaper pails in the past (including the Diaper Genie and Ubbi) and the Dekor is my favorite – just step and drop the diaper in! It also has one of the largest openings, so it’s great for cloth diapers or disposables. We don’t have a separate changing table, just the Summer Infant changing pad installed on top of his dresser, with a few cute covers and these waterproof pads on top (with a little boy, you need them!). For our diaper bag, I went with the Skip Hop Main fame diaper bag, which in addition to wearing as a backpack, has a top carry strap and easily attaches to a stroller. It has numerous pockets and great storage capacity, but I love how the top holds itself open until you’re ready to close it. I thought the black made it neutral enough that Rob wouldn’t mind carrying it around. We also got the Skip Hop diaper pad, which holds diapers, wipes, and cream in addition to a full length pad, and can act like a clutch if necessary.

Disposable Diapers: Disposable diapers, first seen in stores back in the late 1950s, have made raising babies just a little easier. With a variety of sizes, patterns, absorbencies, and even differences in ingredients such as chlorine derivatives (all disposable diapers are required to be free of elemental chlorine, but chlorine dioxide is still used to bleach the wood pulp of many diapers from top brands; bamboo is another ingredient used by greener diaper brands) and fragrance. Babies have sensitive skin, especially newborns, and irritations can develop particularly around the waist and legs, indicating it’s time to try a different brand. There are greener disposable diapers than others, including those that are totally chlorine free (TCF). Disposable diapers are often more convenient than reusable cloth diapers, and can be cheaper compared to a cloth-diaper cleaning service, although disposable diapers do take, on average, 500 years to decompose, and they can contaminate the ground-water as well. However, babies need diapers, and newborns typically use 8-10 diapers a day, with older children using less, so whatever gets you through the day, and your child to potty-training, with your sanity intact, we aren’t here to judge!
All those diapers can add up quickly, so we hope a Black Friday deal on a brand you’d like to use makes it a little easier! Another way to save on diapers throughout the year is to set up an Amazon subscription for them, which saves you 5-20% on diapers and everything else. There are a ton of baby products participating in the Subscribe and Save program which sends out your order each month only after a reminder email so you can adjust the size, quantity and frequency, and the only requirement is an Amazon Prime Family membership, which also gets you tons of other benefits. Start your 30-day free trial today and get the basics auto-delivered!
Cloth Diapering: When you’re washing cloth diapers yourself, it is the most affordable option in diapering there is. If you have an energy-efficient washer and dryer (or clothes line), it saves even more energy and money, and using greener cleaning products can make it even better for the environment, since water and detergent use are two concerns (as well as the initial energy input in the making of cloth diapers). The other way cloth diapers can be cheaper and greener is that with advances in the fabric and fasteners, cloth diapers can grow with your child, and many brands offer products that will fit your child from birth to potty training, with maybe only one size change, Cloth diapers are durable enough to be used from your first child to your last, meaning the initial cost (at the store, and in production input) stretches even further.
Cloth diapering has come a long way since our grandmothers and great-grandmothers were diapering their children, and safety pins have been replaced with much easier options like Snapis. Additionally, those looking for a middle ground between disposable diapers and cloth diapering may want to look into a biodegradable, disposable insert for cloth diapering systems that can lower the amount of wash, and waste, they are creating. Hybrid diapers (aka All-in-two or AI2) allow for the insertion of a cloth or disposable insert into a waterproof shell, allowing you to choose the insert based on the time of day or situation (daycare versus home, for instance) and usually allow you to use the outer waterproof layer for several diaper changes as well. Other kinds of cloth diapers include pocket diapers (in which a washable absorbency insert is placed between the outer waterproof layer and the inner layer), All-in-One (AIO) diapers that have an absorbency layer or two sewn to the waterproof layer for a quick change, fitted cloth diapers (which wear like a disposable and require a waterproof layer on top), and old-fashioned prefold cloth diapers, which can be attached with various fasteners and also require a waterproof layer on top. We’ve looked for deals on the outer shells and fixtures here, and the cloth inserts, disposable inserts, and other accessories below.
Disposable Inserts: Whether you’re on the go or dropping your little one at daycare, disposable inserts can make cloth diapering a breeze. Insert (or snap) the disposable insert into the cloth diaper outer layer, fasten baby up, and they’re ready to go! Some options are biodegradable, but these are in very specific conditions (composting, etc) and not all refuse/landfill conditions allow for the proper breakdown of the materials, but committing to a hybrid system allows you to make less waste than using only disposable diapers. There are also disposable (and usually flushable or biodegradable) liners that can be added to boost the absorbency of the absorbent layer, and make it easier to remove and flush solid bodily waste.
Reusable Inserts: Once you’ve selected your cloth diapering styles, you’ll want to grab some inserts to get started! Figuring out what you need in terms of absorbency, both for your baby in particular but also for different times of day (night time, etc), you may want to have a few different kinds, whether you have pocket diapers, All-in-two/Hybrid diapers, prefold cloth diapers with an outer layer, or are mixing systems. Here are a few different kinds, including those with charcoal (absorbent and you don’t have to worry about stains!) and since they often work for a year or more before baby grows to the next size, you can really make the most out of Black Friday deals!
Other Cloth Diapering Accessories: Wet bags, bin liners, spray nozzles, and fasteners can all make cloth diapering feasible in your busy and growing household. Cloth diapering is absolutely possible if you commit to it, and having some of these tools can make it easier. First up, a wet/dry bag is never a bad idea whether or not you have children at all, much less a cloth-diapered baby. These are useful for wet swimsuits and towels, dirty diapers, bibs and other soiled baby clothes, dirty socks from splashing in puddles at the park, gym clothes, and more. Grab at least a two pack, maybe more (one for each car, daycare, the diaper bag, your purse, etc) and always have a place to toss wet inserts, covers, and more. You can even keep dry and clean inserts in another bag so they don’t get spilled on, pick up crumbs, or otherwise become unclean before touching baby’s bum. Secondly, disposable liners (see above with disposable inserts) can make it easier to increase the absorbency of your insert as well as make it easier to remove solid waste and flush it away, and they’re pretty affordable as well. If you are using prefold diaper inserts, you’ll want to have some fasteners for them (and safety pins are sooo 1940) – grab some ouch-free options (or snag an outer cover with hook-and-eye or snap fasteners, above). Next, a sprayer/bidet to rinse soiled diapers at home, plus a shield to prevent undesirable splashing, plus a diaper pail insert to contain all the cloth diapering components until it’s time to wash them (turning your diaper pail, deals below, into a dedicated laundry basket). Finally, you’ll need a laundry detergent that will get the job done, because if the diapers aren’t cleaned right the first time, every time, it isn’t more environmentally friendly in the long run. Make sure you’re using the best one for your machine (especially HE machines) and water type (hard or soft). We’ve found some great deals and products below, but with these accessories, be sure to shop around and find the products that will work best for you!
Wipes: Whether you’re into disposable wipes or reusable/washable wipes, whether baby has sensitive skin or not, there are tons of options when it comes to wipes, and most disposable containers now come with the flip top lid that keeps those wipes soft and usable for everything from runny noses and dinner time messes to dirty diaper changing. You’ll find you keep wipes all over – the car pack, diaper bag pack, one upstairs and one downstairs, at least one at school, and maybe even one that lives in the stroller! Black Friday is definitely a great time to stock up on this necessity, since baby won’t grow out of needing wipes for a few years (and they’re great for messy kids who are potty-trained, so they’ll definitely get used eventually!)

Diaper Ointments: Whether you put it on every time to prevent diaper rash, or only when baby is irritated, you definitely want to have a diaper ointment in your stash at all times, and you’ll probably end up with a few options. With popular ingredients like zinc oxide (in lower concentrations for the everyday and higher concentrations for the really bad rashes), calendula, and more, barrier ointments prevent irritations and calm and heal rashes that do break out.
Diaper Disposal: Having somewhere to stash dirty diapers is critical, because no one wants to smell what baby can cook up, least of all you! From the original Diaper Genie to newer options like Dekor and UBBI, you don’t have to keep a plastic shopping bag hanging on the changing table, which you empty each evening, if you don’t want to! I’ve tried quite a few of the systems out there, and I have to say Dekor gets my vote – step to open, drop the diaper in, and remove your foot to close. It’s a hands free system that contains the scent very well, has affordable bag refills (although a cloth diaper bag would work too) and looks pretty stylish (as diaper pails go). We hope you find something to hide the diapers and contain the stink in your home too – and that the deals are good enough you can grab one for each changing area!
Changing Tables: The right changing table can tie your baby’s nursery together well, and many pieces can grow with your child, serving as their dresser or toy chest in the future. There are also changing tables for every budget, but make sure whatever you choose has space to lay out what you need, or has room underneath for storage, so that you can safely stay by baby’s side for the entire diaper (and/or outfit) change. Search the deals below or click the link above to find a table you love in a finish that matches the crib, dresser, bookshelf, or other nursery furniture- and as with any furniture, make sure it’s properly secured to the wall with the appropriate fixtures! We also searched for changing pads and changing pad covers (below).
Changing Pads: Changing pads come in all shapes, and have features like contours or straps to make sure baby is comfortable and safe – because there is nothing worse than a squiggly little one during a diaper change (especially when you weren’t done wiping!) and while most changing tables come with a pad, it’s nice to have an extra pad around the house for a secondary changing area, or a replacement if something happened to the original. There are also a ton of adorable changing pad covers (below) so you can change and wash the cover frequently and keep your changing area as clean as possible.
Changing Pad Covers: Changing pad covers come in the most adorable patterns, and come in a variety of fabrics, including minky, cotton, jersey, bamboo, and more. Some are ultra soft, some are waterproof or wipe clean easily. You can also grab some liners to sit on top of the cover. You may want to grab a few covers for each changing pad, so that you can always have one on the pad even when another is in the wash. Hopefully, you’ll find one you love on a great Black Friday deal!
Diapering on the Go: The diaper bag is going to be your constant companion for about the next two years, and it will probably replace your purse, most of the time. You want one that will hold everything baby needs, plus your wallet and other necessities, and is easy to grab, carry, and is durable. Backpacks are a popular option, and some bags now have built-in changing pads, bottle storage, phone chargers, and more. Check out the Black Friday deals and find an option you’ll love as long as you’re carrying around extra changes of clothes, diapers, wipes, food, toys, and more! You’ll also want to consider wet/dry bags (above), travel wipes dispensers, some hand sanitizer, and travel changing pads.
