    Diaper Pail STINKS!!!

    My sweet baby's sickly sweet smelling breastmilk poo smell is taking over his room (though he still sleeps in ours - we just change him in the other room). We just use a regular plastic garbage bin with plastic liners and I take it out once a day. But lately with the humidity it's getting so smelly and even when there are no diapers in the bin, it still smells. It's really gross.

    How do I get rid of the smell?

    this was what I did. he uses the toilet now.

    I put his poopy diaper in a plastic bag and then knotted it tightly before I put into the trash bin.
    OR most of the time, I simply put it in a plastic bag and of course knotted too and took it out immediately.

    Once I realised that the pail smell was hard to get rid of we stopped using it for poo nappies. Just wet ones.

    Dirty nappies went into a plastic supermarket bag and straight out to the rubbish.

    This kept the pail less smelly.

    we have the nappy safe:

    and we keep it in the bathroom. it's lined with a plastic bag and our helper wipes it down with clorox wipes twice a week, but it really doesn't smell. there are tons of similar pails out there to store the nappies which only get worse!!!

    I'd recommend the tommy tippee one..but give it a couple of months - they've just updated the design. Mothercare has the info. I need to go out and get another one as we're expecting another baby and the liners for the new model wont work on the old one. It's a bummer but we feel it's well worth the money. We take out our son's tippee once a week, and his room is odour-free.

    Thanks for your experiences. I will think about whether wrapping the diapers or a special diaper pail like Tommy Tippee would be better. It might be better when my baby starts solids in a couple of months, but maybe for now, when it`s mostly those `poo days`, I will be more diligent about wrapping and disposing.
