Re: Diaper pails

I use a planet wise hanging wet bag, and I love it. I used to use a diaper pail with a cloth pail liner, but I just found it annoying. Somehow it's easier to just use the wetbag. You can hang it anywhere and it looks kind of cute. I leave it halfway unzippered to help prevent ammonia buildup and stink, and it never smells.

Re: Diaper pails

We bought a trash bin with a lid that closes well and then use a big wahm bag like a trash bag. We have two wahm bags so we always have one during the wash

Re: Diaper pails

I prefer the swing-top pail with a liner from 529Baby (Hyena Cart). Get 2 lines so you can rotate on wash day!

Re: Diaper pails

I use a bucket with a lid... does the job really well - and to help with smell, I do a quick rinse of the bucket with baking soda once a week...

Re: Diaper pails

so the baking soda trick really works? if i sprinkle a bit of baking soda inside the wetbag, would it ruin cloth diapers?

I have had several wet bags, knickerknapies (sp?) (bag that hung from the door knob), homemade bags (with zippers), & bummis (large purple bag). I have been CDing for 3 years straight (2 different kids) & just had to toss my first knickerknapies bag & homemade bag because they started peeling. The other bags (purchased 1-2 years ago) are doing fine so far.

I did have issues with stink recently, but that's because I was only washing every 4-5 days & my diapers were organic AIO's, so they just weren't getting clean enough. Washing every other day is best, IMO.

Best wishes on your baby & new journey with CDing!!!

Re: Diaper pails

I use a pail liner in a lidded trash can. The smell usually isn't too bad, I can only smell it when I open the pail, but they do kind of stink. The last few days I have been sprinkling some baking soda on top of the night time diaper when i put it in the pail in the morning. It seems to be helping.

Re: Diaper pails

thanks, momma! we're quite excited

ill try the baking soda trick if my pail starts to stink up. i plan on using a tin trash bin lined with a wetbag. but i do plan on doing the laundry every other day. of course, this is just a "plan", im not entirely sure how or what actually would happen when baby comes out. ;D

Re: Diaper pails

I found that my strategy on this keeps changing as his diapers changed-- for example with EBF poo a hanging wetbag worked great, no stink etc and I washed every 2-3 days. Once he started solids and the diapers were stinkier in general I used an old bucket with a lid and then used some baking soda to wash out the bucket when I washed. In the summer I even needed to pre-rinse them really well before they just sat in a hot bucket, so you may need to use the old fashioned trial and error method til you catch your stride. I find so many people stress about this part of CD'ing and I don't think it's a big deal at all! Good luck to you!
