That’s what I think it every time I change a poopy diaper. My friend Laurie told me that while I was changing a diaper at her house and it’s revolutionized my thinking (if not my actual habits).
I think we’ve tried nearly every kind of disposable diaper disposal system and I hate them all. My preferred method is now to wrap the offending Huggie in a plastic bag then whisk the fecal diaper right outside and into the big bin to wait for it’s Thursday pick-up.
But you need to have buy in from other adults in the household for that method to work. Otherwise, you just have poopy diapers laying around — not going into the champ — waiting for their bag or their escort to the street.
Can anyone please help me?!
What works best for those offensive toddler diapers?
Our current disposal model goes like this:
- Pee diapers go right into the diaper champ.
- Poopy diapers go right outside or wait around festering.
In the boys’ bedroom, we have a diaper champ. It stinks for toddler diapers. Even with a trucker air freshener. It worked just great for those sweet(er)-smelling newborn diapers.
At my mom’s house, there’s a diaper genie. Too confusing. And those plastic sausages strike me as super un-environmentally-friendly. I already have disposable diaper guilt.
In the bathroom, we have a flip top garbage pail. It stinks like a revolving door onto a sewage processing plant.
Also in the bathroom, we have a small garbage can that we use for other bathroom garbage, but I find that if I just keep diapers in there until they bug me, it’s a pretty workable system.
> Cloth vs. Disposable, the great debate with information on both sides of the aisle. Maybe we should all meet in the middle on g-diapers?
> Baby Cheapskate; let Angie do all the legwork for you to track down the best deals on Diapers (and other stuff!)
> Promo Code for Diapers.com: save $10 off your first order of $49 when you enter code DAISY. Free shipping over $49 is extremely fast (like next day fast).
The good folks at diapers.com offered me a $75 gift certificate to try their service upon reading about my diaper woes. I bought some Huggies at an excellent deal and 4 tubes of Desitin for an okay price. Free and fast shipping really blew my mind. The diapers came the next day! Amazing!! Now if they could only find a way to stop the stink!!
