Lots of people just hang a large wet bag off a door handle or hook for dirty diaper storage. Putting it in a pail is mostly for convenience. I love having a pail and not having to zip and unzip every time I change a diaper.

I’m planning on just hanging a wet bag instead of having a pail.  I’m not due until March, so I have t done it yet, but I know a lot of people who just use a wet bag and have no issues with smell.

@Evie19:  I have two large wetbags (for the nursery) and two small wetbags (for the bathroom – that way I don’t have to carry the soaking wet, sprayed poopy diapers into the nursery) that just hang on doorknobs. I have two of each so that while one is in the wash, the other is up and in use. I have had NO issues with stink or leaking!

@Evie19:  I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t remember if we had a diaper pail or not! We did cloth diapers for 3 years (and then disposable from age 3-4 because we were unable to find a combination of diapers and covers that could contain the huge amounts of pee, LOL) and I know we had wet bags but I don’t remember a diaper pail. I loved cloth diapers.

I worked in infant care, and there were definitely parents who just used wet bags for their cloth diapers!

They didn’t smell any worse than the garbage cans!
