    I am looking for some recommendations on a diaper pail. I'm trying to add one to my registry and I'm seeing all sorts of conflicting reviews. I would like one that uses regular trash bags instead of specific refills. Any suggestions??

    Honestly I had a diaper genie w/ #1 and I thought it was a waste.I just bought a smaller trash pail w/ a pop up lid for #2 for right next to the changing table and it was much more cost effective an efficient. Because it was smaller i emptied it more often. You from Rhode Island? I live in Newport.

    I can't recommend one as I haven't purchased one yet but Consumer Reports has some great buying advice.

    Diaper Champ! It's great b/c it locks in most of the smell and uses the regular trash bags. A lot of my friends use this one too. If you look around, you can buy one at consignment stores and sales...not like you need a brand new one just one that's clean.
