Thread: Quick question for those of you (I assume there are quite a few) who live in the US

    Question Quick question for those of you (I assume there are quite a few) who live in the US

    Hi,
    I'm visiting the US for a few months with my partner, who, lately is more into diapers than me.
    We only brought about 4 Tenas from home, thinking we could buy more at any supermarket or pharmacy, but all the places we've been to have a really small selection which usually only includes pull-ups.
    We're currently in NYC for about a week and then we're going to DC, Orlando, Miami, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
    Does anyone know a good place to buy diapers in any of those areas? Any kind of tip would be a great big help.

    Thanks ahead of time

    I'm not sure if these stores are nationwide, but I would assume they would be.

    CVS
    Wal-Greens
    of course Wal-Mart
    Target
    regular pharmacies might have them

    There's more out there, I'm from an area that has those stores above.

    I'm sure other members can give more store names from around the area's you'll be at.

    I hope you enjoy your stay in the US!

    Xp medical is in ventura california which is close to los angeles, they have dry 24/7, seni, tena, molicare, abena, as well as their house brand A+ and other brands and welcome walk in customers. also you can just buy 3 pack samples. You should at least stop and check them out!

    There isn't much here in Las Vegas. You can find a few medical supply stores around and I heard one of them will find what you're looking for if they don't have it. I still prefer ordering online though.

    I know that Amazon has same day delivery in NYC and they have a good selection of premium brands, you might be able to get them shipped to where you are staying relatively quickly. When Amazon ships there is nothing on the exterior of the package to indicate the contents. CVS from what I have seen mainly only carries Depends and their own store brand. Amazon may just be your best bet.

    Amazon is pretty expensive. Are there any cheaper places online?

    Medical supply stores are going to be your best bet as far as buying any diapers that are even worth wearing - or even anything that qualifies as a "diaper" in the first place. Even drugstores are having a vanishing selection.

    Ordering online is your best option. Since I was expected to wear 24/7 when I was on vacation, I had an entire case shipped to my friend's house, but you can easily order smaller amounts, too. XPMedical & Bambino are both good retailers. Those are really the only two companies I have direct experience with state-side.

    Oh yeah, I keep forgetting that not everyone has prime... The shipping would be pretty expensive, but the prices that I've seen for the diapers themselves seem to be competitive.

    When you are going from San Fran to LA or vice versa, place an order with Bambino and stop by there to pick them up. I'm sure they'll allow it. They're located in Redwood City which is near San Francisco. Or if you're staying for multiple days at any of those locations, just have them ship it on a weekday and it'll arrive the next day.
