Disposable diapers in Germany

This is a cost comparison of the various disposable diapers in Germany. Keep in mind this is reflective of the area in which I reside and while the majority of companies have universal prices there is no guarantee that is the store price near you. Also it is obviously not all inclusive, these are the stores in my area that I have access to, but hopefully will help show the various options out there.

If you would like to collect the info for another store or brand not shown here, I am happy to add it shoot me an email with the Name, size name, kilo range, quantity per pack, and package price, as well as the store where those prices were collected :)

These are all standard non sale prices. For simplicities sake I rounded to the nearest cent, so some bigger packs may be fractions of cents cheaper, that will not be reflected only whole cents :)

Check back I hope to check out the following stores to see if they carry house brands and how they stack up.... Netto, rewe, aldi, kaufland/handelshof, DM.

A few stores I do not have near me so if anyone want to collect the info I am happy to add them such as Mueller and Pennymarkt or if you know any other house or name brands please do let me know.

And feel free to let me know any inaccuracies or missing sizes :D

Also coming soon.....

So I have been meaning to answer you and am just now getting around to it....
Wet bags are called wetbag windelsack or windelbeutel and pail liners are pail liner wäschesack. I ordered the ones from GroBaby here http://www.sonnenschnuckel.de/index.php?page=categorie&cat=70 and have been really happy with delivery time, etc. I have a pail from Baby Walz and it is sufficient since I end up washing every second day anyways. When it gets full, it's my cue to wash so that works well. I bet you're having a hard time finding a kitchen garbage can!! And to your post on disposables....we use Moltex Öko when we don't use cloth (vacation, diaper rash or too lazy ;o) and buy it from a truck that comes around - there are small mistakes on the diapers, so they're less expensive (2. Wahl), but still the same quality. I haven't found the mistakes yet. I don't have the 2011 schedule yet, but you can check their site here: www.mobilerwindelshop.de. I'm not sure exactly how much we save, but I know it's something. And I'm glad to use diapers that are at least somewhat environmentally friendly. At night, we are using Pampers, because he was leaking out of ALL of his cloth, but I need to just get around to ordering fitteds and wool covers, so that we can go back to cloth at night, too. Hope that helps, let me know what other questions you have. All the best! Sarah

I bought a lot of cloth diapers, found out that they worked for a very (much toooo) short time and left them behind. Today they are still used for other tasks.
Instead I used disposable diapers from Aldi-Süd, and they worked very well. No rash, no skin irritation, nothing the like. Wet pants and underwear occured, but very very seldom. I got three kids, now 8 to 12 years old.
Not good for the envinronment, yes, I know. But I do live so much "greenly" in many other ways, that I am not too concerned.
All the best for all of you!

Sarah- Thank you for the info. If you know any other sites that sell cloth diaper supplies please let me know. I generally only find the mullwindeln.

iicchh- No problem your English is great. But feel free to also leave comments in German as well. I plan to also do some posts on cloth diapering in Germany. I am still acquiring info about what can be acquired where and what things are called here :)

Besides www.sonnenschnuckel.de, there is also www.blumenkinder.eu and www.zwerge.de. There are probably a bunch of others, but these are pretty much the 3 I go to. Zwerge does have a store near Stuttgart and I have occasionally seen that there are other store (near Leipzig, for example), other than that, I order online, as I have also only found mullwindeln. And of course, if you visit the US or have someone coming to visit, there are a ton of websites and stores there.
