When a good, pregnant friend of mine told me recently that she wasn’t planning on adding a diaper changing pail to her registry, I had to interrupt her mid conversation because I just couldn’t fathom why.
Her answer? She had heard from several people that diaper pails were just not needed.
Ok, so sure, some people do go without them and it seems to work out ok for them. How? I’m not sure exactly. Either they run outside every time their little does a doodle or perhaps they don’t mind the smell? I do know one thing… my friend, who happens to live on the second floor of an apartment building definitely needed one.
Newborns, especially breast fed newborns, are known to poop several times a day. Sure you can get some exercise by taking each diaper out to the dumpster each time the baby poops but how realistic is that? You can also throw the poop in your kitchen garbage but nothing will prepare you for the stink you are sure to encounter if you choose to use this method.
This lead us to trying to figure out which pail would work best for my friend and hands down I had to recommend the Ubbi diaper pail.
The smell of old poop diapers lingering in the air is nothing pleasant and I can assure you is not anything I wish for visitors to smell when they walk through my door.
Now of course, this wouldn’t be a great review if I didn’t note that you do get a whiff when you open the can to remove the bag. However, this is the case with ALL diaper pails on the market. Its unavoidable.
No Extra Costs Involved.
With Ubbi diaper pails, you do not need to buy any special bags to use with it. You simply use regular garbage bags that you are already buying anyway. This is huge! I use to use one of those other diaper pails and I hated adding those special bags to my list of things to buy.
I received the mentioned product in this post in exchange for an honest review. As always all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
