Diaper Disposal Units
Living with a baby can be exhausting, joyous, messy and sweet, but it will always - always - be smelly. That is unless you find an effective way to contain the diaper stink. Considering the average parent will battle the odor for one to three years per child, it's not a fun feat. We've been there. Luckily, they make a life-saving product: the diaper disposal unit. We took several of the newest models on the market and tested each for a minimum of two weeks on both a breastfed infant and a solid food-eating toddler. Our conclusion: Nothing will completely mask the smell of heavily soiled diapers piling up for weeks on end. Period. However, there are some really fabulous products out there to help.

BEST FOR PART-TIME CLOTH USERS | Bambino Mio Dirty Nappy Cloth Diaper Bucket & Lid
If you switch back and forth between disposables and cloth, you might be looking for a better option than a wet bag hanging on a doorknob. For part-time cloth diaper users, we like this Bambino Mio pail, which is a small bucket that has a scented laundry bag attached to the inside. When the pail is full, simply unhook the bag and throw the entire thing into the wash. Simple and convenient. Keep in mind, however, that it’s a rather small bucket. We could fit about 10 AIO diapers at a time – which isn’t ideal for full-time cloth users. And while we would prefer a more one-handed design (you have to unlock and remove the lid each time), the bucket does a decent job at keeping odors inside. For those exclusively using cloth diapers, we recommend a large pail and Kissa’s diaper liners.
