Does a diaper genie really 'keep in the smell'?

When this baby is born we will hopefully finally be in our apartment. And with a newborn and a toddler I can't run out to the trash with every poopy stinky diaper. So I'm thinking of getting a diaper genie for our balcany. Does it keep in the smell? If not I'd just save the cash and get a small trash can with a lid! lol

So opinions on diaper genie, yes or no?

Check out the reviews on Amazon.

My cousin got one for her baby shower she lives in an apartment to and she loves it.

my did well. only time u really smell anything is when you are emptying it. its not a loud odor, but it does have a lil smell to it. what i did was keep a dryer sheet at the bottom of the pail to reduce the smell. other that that, it works great!

they break easily... I broke it trying to change the bag despenser.... I would save your money and just get a small garbage can.

We use cloth so won't have that issue but when we did use disposables I used plastic bags and wrapped each one. HORRIBLE for the environment though but good on my nose.

I had one and threw it out, that was 6 years ago. We put a small garbage can on our balcony and took it out nightly. We put a bag in the can and then bagged each diaper. This time around, we have a house but that's what I did with my first 2 (fir over a year they were both in diapers).

We have 2 and we love them! They are so worth it. To help, we put one of the Febreeze stick and refresh things on it. Didn't really need it. But I'm kinda obcessed with them. Lol

I would just get a trash can and some of those powdered disposable bags.

I loved mine and never had an issue. Use it from birth until potty trained.
