how do you fit 2 days worth of diapers in your diaper pail?

I have this can from Target:


Its the size of a standard diaper pail. However, I don't have enough dipes yet to do l aundry every other day- I do it every night right now and I have a few left for the next day. Anyway, byt the end of the day, its pretty full- I have a baby who wears mostly pockets (but I'm trying my first wool soakers tomorrow!). Do you ahve two pails? I'm thinking of getting another one -one for wipes and inserts and one for the diapers. I don't know how to store them at this point - my changing table is way too far from a door w/ a knob to put the pail liner on it.

Re: how do you fit 2 days worth of diapers in your diaper pail?

I have a 54 quart diaper pail and I can fit 2 days worth in it. I could go three, but I don't like the idea of going that long without washing....I can barely handle every other day. Today is my diaper laundry day, and my diaper pail is getting kinda full, but I also put the trainers in there now that I have switched to cloth trainers.

Just do what you feel comfy with...and GL!

I have a diaper champ too, but only have enough diapers for one day at the moment. This will soon change. I have been doing laundry every day for two months. I am just

Re: how do you fit 2 days worth of diapers in your diaper pail?

I have a kitchen trash can that I use for dipes in the laundry room. I also have 2 smaller like bathroom size cans one for upstairs & one for down... but in general all my dipes go into the big one since I just walk them ther... less traveling later on. Well, I can go a while w/o washing but I think that's b/c I use PFs. I have some pockets, but my pockets & covers I usually wash w/clothes or something.

I have the white and blue one from Target, I think it is a Safety First, I fit exactly 2 days worth in it, and I wouldn't want it any bigger because leaving stinky dipes for longer than 2 days to me is but JMO

Re: how do you fit 2 days worth of diapers in your diaper pail?

i think mine is an 11 or 13 gal flip-top plastic trash can (also from target)....it holds about 12-15 dirty diapers and all their associated inserts & wipes. i wash when it's full. since my dd is older that works out to about everyother day. that's a nice size load to me for washing.

if i was cding 2 or an infant, i'd probably get a large hanging wet bag too.

I have the Safety First one too- I used it for disposables. I rarely use disposables now at all, so I may just use that for diapers too - I just hate the little opening - I lke the big one that my trash can has. I may get another one of those steel cans and use it for inserts and wipes, and then the other for diapers. Its pricy though, so that won't be for a while. thanks!

I have a big flip-top kitchen garbage can.. rubbermaid-like. It stays next to the changing table. I used to have a smaller one in the bathroom.. I just don't have that many poopy diapers anymore.. or that many diapers total anymore, lol. (only 1 full time in diapers -down from 3!!
