  • I didnt get one because I thought it was a waste of time. My friends have one & they rarely use it because it fills up so quick. I just used to put the stinky diapers in a plastic grocery sack & tie it up & put it in the trash.

  • Nope, I BF so there wasn't much odor... besides, who wants all of those nasty diapers sitting around the house? ew.

  • I like mine...I used it in the nursey when he was smaller now that i dont go up there as much with him I keep it downstairs next to the trash can....I love it if I accidentally throw a poopy in the trash it makes the house smell awful but the diaper genie keeps the smell down....until you open it to clean wear nose plugs, but thats it.

  • personally i wouldn't waste my time or my money. it's a really silly thing to me. my trash gets filled up faster then that thing would and personally i wouldn't want used disposables in my house that long.

  • I think diaper genies are ridiculous but the diaper champ is great you just use regular trash bags so its not as expensive

  • I had one with my first pregnancy. I hated it.
    It got to the point that I just put the poopy diapers in a plastic bag and threw it out.
    Now I bought a regular trash can for his room and do the same thing. We change the bag frequently and use a deoderizer in the lid of the can.

  • Nope - spend the $$ on something diapers and wipes! It is not much better than a trashcan and the twisty thing on top breaks and it still gets smelly!

  • no!!!! just throw em in the trash. if you have too, keep plastic bags in the baby's room and use those to help with the smell! :)
