The manufacturers and importers work directly with the distributors. A small group of people in each state. Some state can have just two or three distributors. Sometimes only one, depending on the size of the market.

Some retailers are not restricted to any number. It’s based on the locations and closeness to consumers.

The real beneficiaries in this business are the distributors. Not only do the, enjoy some restricted monopoly, they also own a network of retailers that buy from them regularly.

How Many Diapers Babies Use a Day?

I’m going to be as realistic as possible. Since I cannot estimate the real numbers of babies in the country now, I can only use estimated figures of usage instead of some children using it.

If you multiply the number of baby diapers used by one newborn daily for the next two years, you will marvel. And that’s just what families spend on baby diapers. We haven’t added powder, oil and lotion.

And you can add other baby products in your shop to make it a real one-stop shop for baby products.

baby diapers

Newborn to 1 Month Old

For newborns under a month old use up to 6 or more diapers every day. And for bowel movements, they usually have about 3 to 4 times a day. In their first one month, its at least 10 soiled or wet nappies daily.

If you multiply that number by thirty days in one month, that’s 300 baby diapers. For one child in the first one month of coming into this world. Breastfed babies have softer and more frequent stools.

1 Month Old Babies and Up

However, for one Month babies and older it’s still around 4 to 6 wet baby diapers per day. But for bowel movements, the number tends to decrease. Although, they are still breastfed, with the addition of formula Foods.

While the number of soiled or wet baby diapers from one month and above is around 240 diapers per month.

And medically speaking, even the amount of soiled or wet diapers is a good sign that the baby is getting enough to eat and drink. Because not having many wet diapers could be a sign of hydration or other medical issues. It could even be digestive issues like constipation.

It’s like what OMO is to detergents. And the same happens with Coke. Every soft drink is Coke in Nigeria. But it’s changing. If mothers could change from Pampers back to diapers, every other branded name would soon gain back their names.

So, Pampers baby diapers remain a significant brand in the market. Although, it’s regarded as costly. The prices reduce over time.

Startup Options For A Baby Diaper Business

There are three options you can choose when starting a diaper business. Although, it depends on certain conditions. The first one is an available opportunity. For example, you can only get the opportunity of distributorship if the opportunity is available.

Also, another factor is your shop. A diaper company may need businesses to sell their products in a different capacity in different areas. That gives you an opportunity to start Baby diaper business.

In addition, your shop location is a huge advantage. Location to a significant market or busy area in the state gives you an advantage.

The third one is the capital. Depending on the option you choose, the capital involvement differs. Be sure you can fund your choice. Below are the three Baby diaper business options you can start now.

  1. Distributor partner
  2. Sub-distributor partner
  3. Major retail partner

Baby Diaper Distributorship

The distributors are the main partners of diaper companies. A few distributors per state, between one and three. It mostly depends on the size of the country and how many major cities it has too.

The capital needed is also higher, like between N5 million to N15 million. You can invest more but lower is not a profitable decision.

Baby Diaper Sub-distributorship

The Sub-distributor is usually created by diaper companies to manage small cities. Or larger cities, broken down into smaller market units. It exists in markets where significant distributors don’t exist, or distributors could not afford to fund product supply.

RELATED POST  How To Find Products That Sell

The capital requirement is between N3.5 million to N5 million. There are between two to five sub-distributors in a city.

Baby Diaper Retailer

The retail option is the easiest to start on diaper business. And you can actually begin anytime. The opportunities are always available. And you don’t need a significant amount of money before you can start.

Any amount will be just fine, depending on what the distributor or sub-distributor in your area allows. However, having a right amount of money to buy the product would help.

This kind of retail partner works with the diaper company. It’s not the type that only the distributor or the even the sub-distributor knows.

And there are benefits too. You will get to know how much authorised for a distributor to sell to you. And you can also join in special company promos. It’s always advised to join baby diaper retail business directly from the company and not through distributors.

Action Points For Selling Baby Diapers

There is no unique way to start selling baby diapers. But I’m just showing you a simple step you can follow if you are having a hard time deciding how to get started.

Step one: Rent a shop. Choose the busiest part of the town. Where you site, your shop is more important than the size of the shop. But if you desire the opportunity, try getting a bigger shop.

Step two: Look out for companies interested in marketing their baby diapers in your city. You can fill out the form below, and I will help you send it to interested companies to contact you if you meet their need.

Step three: start selling baby diapers. Some companies would like to deal with existing diaper dealers. You can start as a retailer even if you want to become a distributor. Companies don’t like dealing with newbies for significant distribution like baby diapers.

Step four: Open more shops strategically in other parts of the city. Imagine if you have three to five other shops. Any diaper brand would quickly deal with you than someone else with just one shop. Only do this if you are already making money from one shop. Or you can afford to invest more money.


Starting a diaper business could be the best decision for you. The massive demand for baby diapers across the country is not an income you should let pass you by. Even if a particular brand is the Selling today, other diapers will sell.

Nigerian moms have discovered the convenience baby diapers offer their newborns. No mother wants to go back to using napkins and washing all day like before.

Some retailers have reduced the buy rate from packs to just single diapers. Thereby making it easier for even those with limit funds to buy as they use for their babies.

And if you want to start selling baby diapers, it’s as simple as ABC. Diaper brands are looking for distributors and retailers like you. If you fill the form below, I might be able to link you to one of them.

Important Instructions

  1. Have enough money to buy truckloads if you want to join a distributor.
  2. Start small and grow big. Start as a SUB-DISTRIBUTOR now. Don’t procrastinate.
