Cheapest Baby Diapers in Kuching

They say raising a child costs between RM 400k to RM 1.1m. Now that is some daunting amount of money, but it does feel like…somewhat right. But of course most of the expenses are really up to the parents’ choices. When you want the best for your child, there’s a price for that.

Acknowledging that raising a child is expensive, and with the cost of living ever escalating, we aim to identify areas where you can save more money. The extra cash could be better spent elsewhere.

This month we zoom down on one category of consumables for the babies – disposable diapers. Although this does not seem to cost much when compared to baby food, healthcare expenses and education, it is one of the items that parents have to keep buying almost every other week, asking “I thought I just bought it” every time. And you will just do it and not settled for the alternative of using cloth diapers – all the chores and efforts! There are essentially that same eight to ten brands of diapers in the market, sold at different grocery outlets or supermarkets. Yet the prices vary and for some, the differences could be significant. How do you know if your favorite supermarket is offering the cheapest price for you, living up to its slogan?

As how this site works, we compare the same prices of the same product, apple to apple, in bid to identify where you can get it cheaper, thus save more money. Every cents count.

 

So where is cheaper?

We have fetched the prices for the popular brands of diapers from most of the popular supermarkets in Kuching, and done up a simple comparison chart as below.

Lastly, here are some interesting observation about baby diapers:

  • The price for S, M, L, XL and XXL are the same for most. The only difference is the number of diapers in that pack. Fret not, we have the unit price (the price per diaper) that can help you make better decisions.
  • The price for newborn (NB) diapers are generally more expensive than the next size.
  • Not many places sell twin pack, and this is generally the bundle that gives most savings!

 

That’s all for now!
