Hormone Disruptor Alert | Not Fragrance-Free | Bleached | Dyes | Poorly Made
Kirkland Supreme diapers are basically Huggies, but cheaper. And we really don't like Huggies.
Things We Don't Love
- Dyes and Fragrances: Kirkland Supreme diapers are bleached, have fragrances, and have some pretty nasty dyes.
- Not the Cutest: These aren’t the worst-looking diapers, but they’re not the cutest either. Our major problem with the design is the dyes, especially against baby’s skin.
- They Work: They do absorb moisture well and the elastic is good, which is why people like them.
Kirkland Supreme Diaper Alternatives
- If You Want a Similar Price Point Minus the Nasties: Target Up & Up diapers have no added fragrances and are slightly cheaper than Kirkland Supreme diapers.
- If Cost is a Concern: If money is tight, less expensive alternatives include Target Up & Up, or even cloth.
Total Cost of Ownership*
- $1100 – $1700 list, with discounts available at Costco occasionally
*Total cost of ownership was calculated using a few arbitrary averages, knowing full well that no baby is average. We used approximate weights from height/weight charts to determine how many days the average baby would be in each diaper size. These are the numbers we used:
- 30ish months as the arbitrary average potty training date, though this is “early” for some and “late” for others
- Five Newborn diapers/day on the low end and fourteen Newborn diapers/day on the high end, for 40 days
- Seven Size 1 diapers/day on the low end and ten Size 1 diapers/day on the high end, for 60 days
- Seven Size 2 diapers/day on the low end and ten Size 2 diapers on the high end, for 110 days
- Five Size 3 diapers/day on the low end and eight Size 3 diapers/day on the high end, for 160 days
- Five Size 4 diapers/day on the low end and eight Size 4 diapers/day on the high end, for 180 days
- Five Size 5 diapers/day on the low end and eight Size 5 diapers/day on the high end, for 365 days.
