Wow! Did anyone else happen to notice that diaper prices just soared? I used to get a megapack of Pampers for around $18 and Luvs for $16. I just paid $20 for a pack of Luvs today and saw that Pampers were $22.

Could this have something to do with the shortage a few weeks ago? Unreal!

Hi Dawn,
I haven't noticed a price increase here yet. I already pay almost 15 dollars for a jumbo though so if they increase much more I don't know what I'm going to do being that I still have 2 kids in diapers. We had a shortage up here while they were waiting for all the new packages to come in. I can't believe they have switched them all to cloth. I prefer the plastic ones. With those cloth ones I will never be able to keep a diaper on my middle one. Did you happen to buy the diapers at Walmart? When I lived in Nebraska they almost always increased the price around this time of year then it would go back down in a couple of months.

I did happen to look at WalMart, who coincidentally, does not carry cases of diapers anymore. But, I went to Target, Kmart, and Walmart and they were all much higher.

And I agree ... I HATE the clothlike diapers! I guess I'll end up back at Sams, but they only carry Huggies, which is my least favorite of the 3 major brands.

I wonder if someone in the states could ship you diapers any cheaper? Of course, I'm assuming you're buying them at the commissary, which is probably cheaper than we can get them around here.

Very few things I miss about military life ... but the PX and Commisary are two!
