Last week, I posted about a deal on Luvs diapers for less than a dime per diaper at Amazon. I’ve told you before that $.10/dipe is my “buy now” price – but I fully recognize that those kind of deals aren’t available every week.
Most of my disposable stash is Huggies, since I’m not a fan of the baby powder smell of Pampers. Plus, whatever Pampers uses in its “absorbent core” feels a little too crunchy to me (anyone else?). Anyway, my preference is for Huggies, but I hadn’t found a $.10/diaper deal in over a month and our stash of Size 3’s was running a little low.
When I saw that I could get Luvs for around $.09 each on Amazon I decided to go for it – despite the fact that I’d never used Luvs before and was a bit wary of buying 204 of them. Obviously the frugal side of me won out!
So far, I’m loving them! They have a similar fit and profile to Pampers. Out of the package, they are super trim, but when I put them on my daughter, they fit just as well – if not better – than my preferred Huggies. The stretchy tabs on the sides really help to get a great fit.
The outer material is not at all slick, which some reviewers had complained about on Amazon. And I love that there is neither the “crunchy” feel that Pampers have, nor the overwhelmingly baby powder smell.
With their cheaper price point plus all the great “features”, I think I’ve become a Luvs convert.
By the way, you can still get that great price on the Luvs from Amazon. (Prices will vary slightly, depending on what size you order, and whether or not you have the 20% off coupon code from Parents or American Baby magazine.)
Put Luvs Premium with Ultra Leakguards, Size 3 (16-28 Lbs), 204 Diapers in your cart ~ $35 ($.17 ea)
– Select the Amazon Mom/Subscribe & Save option (Don’t worry, you can cancel it immediately after your order ships) – save $10.50
– Apply your 20% off Parents Magazine discount (or you can get one in the January American Baby magazine) – save another $4.90
= Pay just $19.60 – or $.096 per diaper!
The other great news is that by ordering a box of Luvs, you are making a pre-discount purchase of more than $25, which means your Amazon Mom membership will get extended for another month for FAH-REE!
Okay, moms and dads of (disposable) diapered kids, are any of you luvin’ Luvs as much as I am?
* This has been a completely unsolicited review. Luvs doesn’t know who KOAB is. I am just sharing my opinion because I’m so tickled to have found such a frugal alternative to diapering my little one!
