Not cloth diapering BUT when I had my girl and younger son, we emptied the diaper pail the same time we had to take out the trash, which is 2x a week.  We will do the same thing this time around as well.  I didn’t have a fancy diaper pail either, just a diaper champ where I used regualr trash bags and kept the pail in our bathroom.  It was fine.  I also cleaned the pail once a week or so to keep it fresh.

I have a regular little garbage can with regular bags and I empty it when the garbage is full – so maybe once every three days? With young breastfed babies, poo and pee don’t smell gross – the pee doesn’t smell and the poo smells sweet. So it’s not like regular smelling adult poo and pee in there, which would obviously be gross to leave for even a day.
