When we had our first we originally did not even bother to register for or buy a diaper pail thinking that we would just throw dirty diapers in the outside trash. We also did not want to get sucked into having to purchase a specific brand of expensive diaper pail liners, and the reviews we had read on various diaper pails were not too stellar.
About a week after my son was born however, we realized that going out to the garbage to dispose of diapers 8-10 times a day was not as practicle as we had previously thought. So, we set out to find a diaper pail of some sort. We clearly wanted something that concealed the diaper odor, and was basic enough to use in any decor as we were planning on having more children. This diaper pail did all of this and exceeded our expectations.
We have been using the Diaper Champ for 2.5 years now, and it still conceals all odors nicely. You can buy whatever brand (we buy generic) of small trash bag liners for the inside, which is also convenient and inexpensive. I would recommend this model to anyone!
We purchased a second diaper "disposal" to have downstairs since the only one we had in our house was upstairs in our daughter's room. I first saw the diaper champ at Ikea when I went to change my daughter's diaper one weekend and really liked it. The disposal upstairs was a diaper genie, which required a specific trash bag. I really liked the idea of the diaper champ because you could use whatever type of bag you wished (we use small garabage bags that you can buy for a few bucks at Walmart). I also really like it because it holds a lot of diapers and does not smell. I find that the diaper genies hold a scent, but for us the diaper champ does not. It is also so easy to change. In the future I will probably only use diaper champs becasue they are cheap, easier to use, and do not leave a smell.
When I was pregnant with our son my husband was skeptical of all diaper disposal systems he had seen. I was very sure that I didn't want to be throwing diapers away in the regular trash though. So I finally chose the Baby Trend Diaper Champ at the referral of a friend and it has been great! You can line it with a regular kitchen sized trash bag instead of having to buy expensive specialty bags. The system design allows you to dispose of a soiled diaper without actually opening the lid to let out the smell of older diapers. At first I didn't understand how it worked, but it is a great system. You place the diaper in a holding area and swivel the head around to dump the diaper in the trash bag. The smell it cut down dramatically better with a diaper champ than with a diaper genie. The nursery at my church has a diaper genie and the room smells awful whenever a diaper has to be disposed of. I recommend the diaper champ to all the expectant mothers I know.
No diaper disposal is completely scentless, but this is the best one I have seen... or smelled.
Thank goodness that I've got friends with kids! Upon their recommendation, I purchased the Diaper Champ. I was originally going to get the Diaper Genie but they informed me that the Genie needs specific bags (which are costly). I love that the Champ is easy to use, can use ANY bag (or no bag!), is high quality and is cheaper than other options. I've been very pleased with this product!
