How much does baby diaper cost in Malaysia?
I know it is different depending on brands and also sizes. Here, I sometimes get diapers online (amazon.com) and several times at the local stores. For Brandon's size now (he is wearing size 4 American size, for baby weighs 22lbs and up, he weighs around 9-10kg), is around USD0.18 each piece for Huggies Regular. For Pampers Cruiser (with stretchy bands) size 4 is about USD0.20 a piece. There are others cheaper brands like Stores' brands, Sam's club own brand (Smiles) and even BBRU own brand (Especially for Babies).
We bought BBRU brand during their sales to test it out. It was $15 plus tax for each box (quantity different depending on sizes). I don't remember the total pieces of the size 4 diapers as we already threw away the box a long time ago. If I remember correctly, BBRU's brand is around USD0.15 per diaper. So far, we have no bad experience with this brand of diaper. We may want to try Smiles, Sam's club brand the next time. For a size 4 box of 152 diapers, Smiles brand comes out to cost about USD0.14 a piece.
Each day, we use between 5-8 diapers, depending how many times he poops a day. Average I will say about 6 diapers a day. If no pooping, I usually will change the diapers every 3-4 hours (daytime). Night time he will wear it from around 9-10pm till morning around 7-8am. We use Huggies Supreme for his night time wearing.
It is difficult for us to use clothe diaper as we need to have him wear different clothings in different season. If is all the time summer, we can consider clothe diapers. I do let him wear clothe diapers once in a while (now), especially if a short time wears is needed before bath time. These clothe diapers from Malaysia which my aunt brought me are getting smaller for Brandon. He actually doesn't fit in them anymore, but I just let him wear it. We didn't use the safety pin, just tie it down with a knot. Faster and more safer way instead of using the pin.
