what parents are saying
Although these help in minimizing diaper odor they are quite small and you will find yourself constantly refilling the bag and emptying it out. You are better off using your trash. (Dec 31, 2015)
The quintessential diaper pail, the Diaper Genie is tried and true. It has a foot pedal for hands-free diaper disposal and it’s small it doesn’t take up too much space in the nursery. It also keeps in the smell really well--one mom even admitted she accidently left diapers in it for “way too long” and never smelled a thing.
The Catch: It requires specific liner refills, which are costly.

After spending so much time decorating our nursery, the diaper genie ensures that it never smells like pee or poop! I mark on the scent pack when we change and make sure to replace every month.

We like this pail, the only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because you have to buy the refills, with the Ubi we could use any garbage bags. It works great containing odors which is most important.

Perfect trashcan for nursery! Holds in the smell and is easy to change. Take up minimal room. Is annoying to buy refills but the cost is comparable to trash bags. Make sure to change the carbon filter

Mainly use for just #1 diapers. Have been using a hack where you tuck a regular trash bag into the blue ring for about 2 years and it is so much cheaper. Takes a few tries to get the back down but so

Keeps the smells in while closed but good lord it's horrible when opened to use! buying the refills is costly. I just ended up taking the stinky diapers to the trash can outside Not worth the money

Received this as gift from my baby shower and it was great in the beginning then came the time to buy the refills and it just did not work correctly after the first try. I ended up throwing it away.
