I mostly use cloth (which requires a pail) but for sposie dipes I just use a plastic bag and take the poo dipes out to our shed (where we keep garbage). Our house never smells…so it works for us!

I used them for my kids, we started with the diaper genie but you have to use their bags which can add up. I switched to the ‘Baby Trend Diaper Champ’ which uses regular grocery bags and loved it.

I’ve been with and without and I think they’re worth it.  The stink is kept in the pail and believe me that will make a big difference in the long run.  I deodorize the pail by sprinkling some coffee grounds in the fresh bag when I change it.  I’m really sensitive to smells, so I clean it regularly and use natural deodorizers.  We thought we’d be thrifty and just tie the diapers up in a grocery bag, but it didn’t work as well for us.

I got one as a gift, and only used it until we ran out of bag refills. We use a trashcan with a lid on it now, and it works and it’s cheaper!

If you want to use one, the diaper champs use regular trash bags so you save money. I personally will not be using one because I have been a nanny and they all stink to me. Of course, I don’t know how often the parents took care of them since that wasn’t my job but I wasn’t a fan of the smell. Our LO will be born soon, and we plan on putting the poopy diapers in grocery bags and then either taking them right out to the dumpster or put them in the trash if its full enough already.
