I’m not even kidding when I tell you that one of the number one questions I get asked is, Do I use a diaper pail and if I do, what’s the best brand? I probably get 1-2 emails/messages a week asking this. It’s a hot topic! 😉 First, let me answer the first part–YES. We have always used a diaper pail and honestly, we use it religiously. If I’m still being totally honest, I’m way too lazy to take dirty diapers outside to the trash can every time baby girl poops. Like really, who has time for that? So our diaper pail has saved my sanity and a whole lot of time. Now, what diaper pail do I use? We use the Diaper Genie Expressions by Playtex Baby and love it. This is a recent addition to Blake’s nursery from Playtex Baby and I couldn’t be happier. You’ll see why in just a second here with some cute pictures 😉 (plus you get a little peek at Blake’s room which we’ve been working on like crazy the last month).
There are several reasons I’m a big fan of this diaper pail:
Number one, it seals off twice which means no smells. When you put the diaper in, you have to actually push down on a leverage to get it into the bag, then that part kicks back up and stays in place. That adds extra smell protection plus the actual lid that locks down in place.
Number two, it’s Blake proof. This might sound silly, but I mean it. She LOVES opening anything and everything right now, so the fact that she can’t get this open is a huge win in my book.
Number three, it looks fabulous in her room and coordinates well. Here’s the scoop, the Diaper Genie Expressions has sleeves that slide right onto the pail itself to add a better overall look and to give the ability to keep with the theme of your nursery. It’s pretty darn brilliant if you ask me! We use one of their neutral gray patterns and love it.
Number Four, finally it is easy to reload and empty. It has a cutter in the pail so you can cut off the previous bag full of diapers and tie the bottom to create a new one. This is nice because I don’t have to reload an entire new bag every single time. It’s time saving and an easy way to keep things clean and organized!
Want to see what it looks like? We’ve got you covered. 😉 Plus, it’s pretty stinkin’ adorable because Blake loves to help me right now with everything! So she will set the diaper inside and I will push it down into the bag. She’s kind of my favorite…okay, she’s totally my favorite!!
