When we decorated Lucy’s nursery, one of the first things my husband insisted we get is a good diaper pail that has the ability to lock in odor. It was funny and surprising to me because he actually knew what a diaper pail is. Why did he insisted we get one? I will explain below. And because of his specific request for a good diaper pail, when I was given a variety of Playtex® Baby™ products to choose from, the Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™ was my number 1 pick. Here are the 5 reasons why we love it.
Germs and odors protection
This is the main reason my husband insisted on getting a diaper pail. He has had experience changing diaper before with his niece, and warned me several times about the stink. It’s not so bad when the baby is younger and milk fed. But when she starts eating food, it’s a whole different stink (his words). It is extremely important to us a diaper pail can keep the odor away. The Push-N-Lock clamp system of the Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™ does a great job of preventing odors from escaping. Not only that, the Diaper Genie branded bag refills feature seven layers that work together to provide Barrier Technology to lock in germs as well. Germs and odors are kept away, that’s exactly what we need in our baby’s room.
Customizable to any nursery decor
If you can’t already tell, we have a color theme going on in Lucy’s nursery. Pretty much everything is pink and white. So obviously, I got the pink and white sleeve for our Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™. You can get any Designer Fabric Sleeve (sold separately) to cover the diaper pail and match it to your nursery. In other words, if we switch up the decor in Lucy’s room, or want to save the diaper pail and use it for our next baby (am I way too ahead of myself here?), we can get another sleeve with a different color and design and match it to the room.
Washable fabric sleeve
Not only can you switch up the sleeve design for your Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™, you can also wash it, because it’s just fabric. This is another big reason I love this idea of removable fabric sleeves. Soon enough, Lucy will be crawling around, touching everything, and then putting her hands in her mouth. Being able to remove the Fabric Sleeve and wash it every once in a while is such a relief for me. Now I can make sure everything in the room that she could possibly touch is nice and clean.
This diaper pail is not too big, not too small. I think it is the most perfect size. We have seen really big ones in the stores before, and those would definitely not work in our small space. Her nursery isn’t big, but we didn’t want a tiny diaper pail either because I would be too lazy to take out the trash too often. So, this Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™ fits the needs. It can hold up to 50 newborn sized diapers. That gives us about a week or so before we have to empty the trash.
Some diaper pails at the stores I’ve seen could be so expensive. But this Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™ is affordable. You can get one here for about $23. And if you want a Designer Fabric Sleeve, it’s just an extra $7 here. For what the diaper pail does, this is one of your best options in the market. The most bang for your buck!
Because of all these reasons, we just love our Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™. I took Lucy to her 4 month check up and we got an okay from her pediatrician to start introducing food into her diet. I’m sure the odor lock feature of this diaper pail will come in even more handy when she starts eating food. What features are most important to you in a diaper pail?
