Meet the Sullivans: The (Diaper Pail) Game Changer

The (Diaper Pail) Game Changer

You know you're a mom when... dedicate a whole (long) blog post to how much you appreciate your new diaper pail. 

Until I was 7 months pregnant I was convinced I didn't need a diaper pail. What was I thinking? I didn't want to keep a pail full of stinky diapers in the baby's room when I thought I could easily just throw the thing out when I came back downstairs. I obviously forgot that I would also be carrying my baby down the stairs with me at this time and probably wouldn't want to balance him in one arm while also juggling said diaper. Honestly, what the heck was I thinking? I don't know who the brilliant person was who talked me into registering for one was, but I'm really glad they did.

Trouble is I picked the wrong one. Our original diaper pail (that we suffered through 12+ months with) broke when Owen was 3 weeks old. It still operated fine but made this awful wrenching noise as it was closed. This lead to my husband not wanting to close the thing and me always having to go back in after he was done changing Owen to close it after him. 

Well, we're not high maitenence people, so we lived with the awful noise, difficulty to close it, and the buying of the "special" bags...

AND THEN one day Owen figured out how to open the diaper pail and plunged his ENTIRE arm in and out of the thing. You turn around for a second and I swear they've found the most discusting or dangerous thing in the room. Well this was a game changer. I'm okay with noise and silly bags, but I am not okay with what was happening at that moment. He was thisclose to being arm deep in his own poop.

I immediately tweeted out to Nina author of According to Nina, as I remembered she had just bought a new diaper pail and I know she does her research. She recommended the Ubbi World diaper pail and I am so glad she did. It is easily worth every dollar we spent on it. If you buy it from Amazon you can get free shipping!

Let me tell you a few things I like about it:
  • Compatible with standard kitchen trash bags to save $$ (no more "special" bags!!)
  • Powder-coated steel that does not absorb odors
  • Strong rubber seals keeps odors contained with diaper pail
  • Childproof safety locks prevents unwanted messes
  • Eco-friendly can be used with reusable diapers
  • Stylish solution for disposing used diapers
  • Easy to load, use, empty & clean
  • Safe, convenient and economical
  • Innovative sliding lid to reduce air disruption
Owen has never been an easy kid on the changing table. In the beginning you'd think we were torturing the little guy when we were in fact only changing his diaper. Sometime around a few months old he began wiggling, then as he got older he began trying to roll point is that changing diapers is enough of a chore already-- I don't need the extra complications from my diaper pail.

I am not a big fan of our diaper genie. I have to smush the diapers in there and have gotten poop on my hands (more times that I would like to say).. Maybe I should upgrade to the ubbi.

It definitely the small things when you become a parent :) we had an awful diaper pail. So now I just throw them out as I go since Logan can walk on his own.
