Emily valiantly attempts to fight the battle of the diaper pail:
We've been using the Diaper Champ since my daughter was born 18 months ago. We chose this diaper pail over the Diaper Genie because it uses regular garbage bags instead of expensive refills. And it's been fine…until the last few months. With my daughter's expanding palate (the girl loves spicy food) and larger meals, the Champ has started stinking up her room. We have a small house with no where else to put the poopy diapers. So last week we started putting the stinky diapers in plastic grocery bags (I know I have a million of them, I am sure most parents do). So if you put the stinky diaper in the bag, tie in and put in the diaper champ, and turn the handle to put it in the bag, there is no more stink!
I'm a bit of a contrarian on this hack. As you may know, I'm no fan of diaper pails. We, too, used a Diaper Champ, and, during the early toddler stage, even double-wrapping in plastic bags didn't do the trick. Emptying the contents into the toilet helps both the smell and the environment, but, during the later years, the diaper pail proved to be more trouble than it was worth.
