How Many Baby Wipes Do I Need?

Did you know that skin irritation in the diapered region (commonly referred to as diaper dermatitis) is one of the most common skin disorders in infancy, with the highest incidence at 9‐12 months of age? 

To avoid diaper dermatitis, you must remove any trace of pee and poop effectively and use products free from potential irritants and contaminants. That’s where baby wipes come in.

Like diapers, parents run through a boatload of baby wipes over the first few years of their child’s life. But how many do they need? Read on to find out. 

How Many Baby Wipes Do I Need Per Day, Month & Year?!?

Although the number of wipes needed will vary depending on the size and weight of your baby, how frequently they feed, and their age, it never hurts to have more baby wipes than you need.

In other words, it pays to be prepared, mainly when a diaper blowout occurs. Here’s how many baby wipes you need per day, month, and year: 

How Many Wipes Does A Baby Use In A Day?

On average, you’ll need 1-2 wipes per wet diaper and 7-10 wipes per soiled diaper. Depending on the average number of diaper changes, you could use up to 30 wipes daily. 

How Many Baby Wipes Do I Need Per Month?

Going off the numbers above, you’ll go through roughly 900 wipes a month with a newborn baby.

How Many Wipes Do Babies Use In A Year? 

Over 365 days, you can use anywhere from 8,000-10,000 baby wipes. That’s a lot of money spent cleaning up during diaper changes and after big messes! 


How many wipes are in a pack?

It varies from brand to brand, but our unbleached wipes come in packs of 60.   

How long does a pack of baby wipes last?

Since you can go through up to 30 baby wipes a day, we estimate that a single pack of our wipes can last 2-4 days (with a newborn). The older your baby is, the fewer wipes you’ll need to use, and packs will last you longer. 

How many baby wipes should I register for? 

When registering for baby wipes, we recommend 1 or 2 large boxes. We also have a subscription option, should friends and family want to cover you for a couple months. We also have gift cards from $10-$1,000 if you’d rather give someone the option to buy as many wipes as they need.
