Diaper Shopping and Stocking: Problems and Solutions

Diaper Shopping and Stocking: Problems and Solutions

Haven’t we all been in that desperate situation where your bub needs a poop change, but you had run out of diapers entirely! Here’s a look at the common scenarios or practices when it comes do diaper shopping, how it works, and what could be done.

Bulk Buy

A lot of parents buy nappies in bulk, which isn’t really a bad idea. This helps make sure you have enough to last a while, and so you are sure you won’t be dealing with diaper emergencies too often. Some parents are fully updated on the seasonal and flash sales, and would grab a whole bunch at the time. You can stock them away neatly and take a couple out at a time according to requirement. Seeing stocks of diapers, for some reason, give parents a load of happiness and a strange feeling of contentment, most of them say!

While it may sound like a super solution that could save you so much hassle and inconvenience, there are still a couple of things about bulk buying that may not make it the best option to some. Costs are definitely, one of the key concerns when it comes to buying large stocks of diapers. Not everyone can actually afford to buy many dozens at once, and so, it may not be the best option. Another problem could be storage.

Even though it may sound like a reason that isn’t good enough, storage could be a real problem in some households. Third, most moms confess that they tend to take diapering for granted when they know they’ve got loads stocked up. In other words, you may tend to act careless and not value every diaper that you put on your baby, because you know there’s plenty!

Scheduling Your Diaper Purchase

Majority of parents choose to do their baby essential purchases along with the rest of the home essentials on a scheduled date. This you could choose to do according to your preference and at your convenience. Some choose to do their purchasing monthly, at the beginning or end of every month. Some on the other hand, opt for weekly or fortnightly purchases. Either way, this happens in a much more organized way.

The thing about this plan however, is that you could just get unlucky at times. The stores may have run out of stocks of the diapers you look for, or the size you need. Then, there’s also a possibility that you’d run out of your stick before your purchasing day arrives. This means you’d have to get some sooner, and that would just mess up your normal plan entirely.


One solution however, is that you look for quality nappy suppliers who offer awesome services like a special premium nappy subscription box that you will receive monthly/weekly or so, according to your preference, without fail. This way, you won’t even have to think about diaper supplies and, what a load of stress would that spare you!

Another thing that may help in diaper emergency situations is calling those super-fast/instant delivery services around you, if any, who will deliver your stuff minutes after you’ve placed orders via phone or website. However, not everyone may have access to the facility. If you do, consider yourself super lucky!
