Someone asked a question about roughly how much do I spend a month on diapers.  That is actually a really good question.  I truly had to sit there and think about exactly what I buy in a month.  So, here is the breakdown of what I spend roughly per month on adult diapers and diaper related products (i.e. baby powder, vaseline, etc).  In regards to diapers I probably spend in the range of $70 a month on adult diapers.  I typically order one case of Bambino Diapers a month so that runs a lot cheaper now since they came out with their new lower prices (helped me out a lot!).  Then, I typically order 1 package of Attends diapers a month so that is roughly $20 give or take…so, it comes out to roughly $70-$80 per month on adult diapers alone.  Which, is not too bad.  A lot of times I still have some leftover from the previous month so I may not order as many diapers the next month – it just depends whether I have more accidents or messes that month.  Just varies.  In regards to the baby accessories – I typically spend probably $10 a month on this sort of stuff.  Mainly that is wipes because messes typically take a bit more wipes to clean up so I usually buy the refiller pack of Pampers Swipers (thicker wipe for “big messes”) which runs roughly $6.  Then, probably $4 for maybe some additional baby powder or baby vaseline to prevent chaffing.  Sometimes, I will buy Desitin so that factors into the cost per month sometimes.

Obviously, this varies certain months but on average that is roughly the amount spent on diapers per month.  I have a huge stash of diapers honestly so if I wanted to take off a few months and not buy any diapers then I could but I am the type of person that likes to feel comforted about having a lot of diapers.  I know, I know – I am strange like that.  But, I would estimate that I probably have over 500 diapers at any given time.  Many are still in their case boxes but yeh.  Being incontinent makes you always prepared for the worst so I make sure I have a good stock of adult diapers and baby accessories such as baby powder and wipes on hand just in case.

Hopefully that answered your question on how much I spend roughly on diapers per month.  I am curious how different I am compared to others…what does everyone else spend ‘roughly’ of course on diapers and baby accessories per month?.

    I probably spend about $80/month (approx 2 cases of Abriform X-plus) being on 3 diapers a day. I use abriforms, so I think I change every 7-8 hours, but I am mainly dealing with urinary incontinence.

    As you said Adrian it depends on the month but being incontinent like you I go through 2 cases of Abena x-plus a month so I spend about $160.00 (canadian$) and then probably a $12.00 in swipers wipes and powder. Once in a while I have to use a prescription cream for diaper rash so that costs about $17.00 so I am probably about $175.00 a month. I also like to keep a stash of diapers. My SO thinks I’m waiting for the apocalypse but I hate hoping my diapers will show up in time.

    I used to spend over $100 per month on diapers and essentials, but I’ve switched from expensive wipes to just using a warm, wet, cloth to clean myself after messing. Big or small messes; they still take at least a few wipes, so a soft warm cloth is really good at keeping expenses down a bit. Of course, when I’m out and mess my diaper, then I have wipes handy. I’m pretty good at managing that, though. I don’t always wear a diaper out, either, if I’d had a BM in the morning. There are times when I’ve gotten caught out and messed my panties, but I wear big panties. 😉 Haven’t really been caught and embarrassed with loaded panties, to date. Thankfully.

    I have a killer diaper rash… I wet the bed, urinary incontinence, and I can’t get rid of it… What do you suggest??? I spend about $27 a month on diapers plus 10 more for wipes and lots of DESITIN and A&D…

    You know, this makes me wonder a bit: How do the costs of a diaper-dependent adult compare to the costs of taking care of an actual baby in diapers?

    I had to break out a calculator.

    I’d guess I spend about $70 a month on diapers, but I buy Molicares, which are substantially more expensive than other brands I could get. I just got three cases in this week (I get from B4NS, which ships from one province away…so one day shipping!), which should last me…a while. Hoping at 3-5 months.

    I’m not incontinent, but still wear a diaper every night, and occasionally during the day. I prefer Attends for daytime wear, mainly due to their relative thinness compared to the Molicares. So…yeah. $70 is about fair.

    …huh. That ain’t so bad then. I thought it would have been more!

    Diaper rash, am suffering from the same thing. It’s been more than a few months now and I’ve tried handfuls of creams, epsom salt baths, powders and nada. Once it got started, it was like a train wreck. I know when my boys were little, we’d take the diapers off now and again throughout the day. But I don’t have enough time alone where I can do that!

    xo, Papa

    I usually spend about $125 a month on diapers. Typically a case of Bambinos and a case of something else.

    What’s your usual daily routine? (How many do you use per day) I’d try and do the math myself but I’m too lazy xD

    I’m the same way. I buy my ATN (All-through-the-night) diapers on Ebay at like $50 for 72 diapers. Even when I have some left, I will buy more the next month. I like the security of having a bunch of diapers in a box to sift through and smell…idk

    If you are incontinent, I am wondering if you have insurance that will cover the cost of your diapers and have considered going that route. Although, I can tell you’d probably get some flak if you wanted to request Bambinos from an insurance company…. they would probably wonder what’s going on! I ask because I have a friend who is incontinent and has insurance that pays the cost of his diapers.

    If I had the money I’d spend a couple hundred a month to have a variety but for now roughly fifty on diapers, ten on wipes, and about six dollars on baby lotion.
