Looking to skip the classic? Today we’re sharing alternatives to a Diaper Genie. If you need a different way to toss out dirty baby products, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re changing a boy or a baby girl diaper, you’re gonna have a lot of stink things to toss.
A few months ago we shared a post called “Do you need a Diaper Genie?” and you all loved it! While I’m a huge DG fan, many were asking for alternates.
Why look at a Diaper Genie Alternative?
If you’re new to baby diapers, you might not realize that there are other options than the OG. But there are some great reasosn to look into it.
- Better looking.
- Smaller (or larger!) footprint.
- Less expensive.
- Eco friendly.
If you’re keeping baby in your room, you definitely don’t want to be smelling those stinky diapers!
How do I dispose of diapers without a diaper pail?
Obviously, the first alternative is using your normal trash. The downside to that is that you’ll have to take out your trash more to avoid stink, but it’s not a huge deal.
It’s also not a kid or pet proof option, so if you have a pup who loves diapers like we do, it’s not a great solution.
So what are these alternatives to the Diaper Genie?
If you’re looking for something more specific, here are more diaper pail options:
