The
average baby uses over 7000 diapers and more than 31,000
disposable wipes
over the diapering years which is usually about 2 and a half
to 3 years. This figure is based on changing 8 diapers
per day, using 4 disposable wipes per change, 7 days a week,
for 2 and 3/4 years or 973 days.
General
BreakDown of Usage

973 days x 8 diapers per day = 7,784
changes
 8
diaper changes per day x 4 disposable wipes per change
= 32 wipes per day
 32
disposable wipes per day x 973 days of diaper changing
= 31,136 wipes
 The
average box of disposable wipes cost about $3.00 and contains
80 wipes
 31,000
wipes divided by 80 wipes per box = 387.5 boxes of wipes
 387.5
boxes of wipes x $3.00 per box = $1,162.50
That puts the total cost of disposable wipes throughout
the diapering years at close to $1,200.00 (with much grace
given to that figure ... the actual figure is almost always
much higher).
