Diaper Disposal System?

Hi Ladies,

Quick question. I have registered for one of the diaper disposal systems kind of like the Diaper Genie, but I've been hearing that I will probably not use it all that much. What has been your experience with these - if you've had them? Just curious!

I've never had one, so I can't say if they are wonderful or not or if you would appreciate it or not. But, I can say that I have gotten by fine through 5 years of diapers without one. Mostly I just use a small trash can with a target bag as a liner and I empty it every day. I also have a diaper pail that has a closed top that you pop open to insert the dirty diapers. It also just uses a target bag as a liner. I only empty it once or twice a week. It does a good job of keeping the smell out of the room.

I registered for the diaper genie.... thinking it was the best invention ever... I was very greatful for the gift... but never used it in real life... I would have been much better to have resigtered for diapers to put in teh geine! ha.... seriously though... to me huge waste of $$$...

We have the Diaper Genie, and we use it quite a bit. We used to use it even more when Caleb was little, but now we put the wet diapers in a regular trash can and the poopy ones in the DG. I think it works just about as good as anything. People gripe about all of them. It's just really up to if you guys think, you would use it or not.

I did not use one either. It is just as easy for me to put the wet diapers in the regular trash can and take the dirty ones to the outside trash can. I did not see a huge need for a diaper genie since I did not want the dirty ones in the house at all and wet ones really do not matter.

I've heard the same thing, Christina and I think I'm going to do some version of what Becky and Lindsay have done.

We used the Diaper Champ with all of our kiddos & I liked that option much better. It wasn't near as complicated as the Diaper Genie. (In fact, when Nick was born, the twins could go throw his diapers in the there for me. Very easy to use!) You can use any garbage bags you choose and it kept it out of our main garbage. Also, we had a dog, so I felt better keeping the diapers contained. I highly recommend the Diaper Champ!
