We actually have two 🙂

My husband has a colostomy so we had one before for his bags, and we just throw her poopy wipes in there too. We use cloth diapers and we bought a cheap diaper pail to throw the dirty cloth diapers in before washing them.

We used disposable for the first month and used the diaper pail, I’m glad we had it. Keeps the stinky out.

It’s pretty necessary… But it does take a while to get used to having a steaming bucket of evil in your house.

I just use a small trash can with a lid and line it with grocery bags. Every night we take out the grocery bag and put it in our big garbage can outside and replace it with a fresh one.

@eurekaanchovies:  i got a diaper genie as a gift before baby was born, so don’t know life without it.  but i gotta say, once we switched her to formula and solids, diapers became a whole different story!!  so it has become an essential for us.  it really does keep the odor at bay and isn’t a big investment.  +

@eurekaanchovies: My LO isn’t actually here yet, but Mrs. Tiramisu’s blog has helped me immensly with my decisions on cloth diapering. She bought a regular trash can with a lid and uses the Kissa’s Antibacterial Liner, which goes right in the wash along with her cloth diapers. Genius if you ask me.. Here is the link to the post about how she keeps her nursery from smelling like diapers (scroll about half way down the post to get to that part).

We use a regular trash can by simplehuman. It has a step on, self closing lid and if fantastic for diapering. We CD, so I have a Kissaluv’s liner and a Planet Wise one, and we do not have an odor issue. We actually loved our trash can for diapers so much we ended up getting a second one for our regular garbage in the kitchen!

@eurekaanchovies:  I am a CD momma and I also use a cheapo diaper pail with a push to open lid with a pail liner (mine’s a planet wise) in it.  I just throw the liner in the wash with my diapers.  Keeps the smell in perfectly!

For those of you that throw the liner in the wash with the diapers, what do you do with your new dirty diapers in the mean time? Do you have two liners?

@artbee: I have another hanging laundry bag that I use during that time.  For a while I only had 1 and it dries REALLY quickly so I just left them out for a bit…which didn’t seem to make it smell bad that I could tell.  It’s better with 2 though! 🙂

@eurekaanchovies: We used cloth right after she grew out of newborns, so 2 weeks.

 @dchokiebride3: Thanks! I can’t believe I didn’t think before to get a cloth liner… every time I throw away the trash bag for the diapers I think about how wasteful it is!

@eurekaanchovies:  I started cloth late at around 2.5-3 months.  Most people will start either right away or right after the umbilical cord falls off (a few weeks) if you are really dedicated to cloth.  I only waited because I was overwhelmed with new baby and PPD.  Next time I plan on starting after the cord falls off.  If you are going to CD you probably don’t need the diaper genie but that’s just my opinion! 🙂

@artbee: You’re welcome!  I love talking cloth diapering!
