Diaper Genie vs. Diaper Champ?!?! Any Suggestions?!?!

Hello ladies, I am a first time mom and I am wondering what are the pros and cons of both the Diaper Genie vs Diaper Champ? They seem pretty compatible, however the Genie is a few dollars more expensive for the actual product and each refill is 1.50 more expensive each time...

I am wondering if this is one of those products where it is better to spend a little extra for quality or if it is even worth it!

Anything would be appreciated thanks!

  • Diaper champ. You can use ANY bag. It will save you on having to get all those expensive refills. I thought it was great.

  • @butterflyblue I was going to say the same thing...I think they are both a waste of money we go both of them for gifts at the babyshower...I attempted to use one and the other one is in the basement!!

  • NEITHER!!! i use a plastic grocery bag and knot it and whenit gets enough in it then i throw it in the outside trash bin... fancy shmancy diaper garbages don't work well... they stink period!

  • We have the Champ and I think it does a good job. It uses any kitchen garbage bag. My son is 11 months and I empty it once a week and there isnt a smell problem.

  • I bought one with my first and never used it. We have to take the garbage out about every other day anyway, so putting the diapers in a genie would have been hanging onto them longer. We didn't even really use a lidded garbage can. If one was particularly bad, we just wrapped it in a store bag.
