I’m pretty sure that absolutely nothing comes easy when you first start out as a parent, with the exception of the love you have for your child. I thought I was prepared, I thought I had enough experience to have the gist down pat. Y’all, I thought completely wrong.
Life with a baby is hard. And while there’s tons of research and references out there, there isn’t a straight-up guidebook with step-by-step directions to follow. Lucky for us, we live in a time where certain things have been created that add a touch of convenience and go so far in making things a bit more simple for us starting out. One of our favorites from day one with Scarlett? The Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail.
Y’all, I made a classic mistake. I completely underestimated how many diapers we’d go through in the beginning. I was scared to get them as a gift because I didn’t want to have too many of one size. Thinking back on that now, I want to laugh in my face – what a rookie mistake. We definitely have diaper types we like best, but we’ve spent more on those than anything else since her birth already.
It’s amazing how fast those diapers pile up. We just happened to be prepared – one of the first items on our registry was a Diaper Genie®. My sister uses one in her nursery, so I had firsthand experience with it when going into the nursery planning stage. It’s the absolute easiest thing to change – no storing extra bags or having to fluff them out to refill. The foot-pedal to open makes a world of a difference when you’re trying to balance throwing away a diaper with protecting a little one from rolling over or falling. We buy Diaper Genie® 2pk Refills so that we’re always well stocked and ready.
We actually like it so much that we wanted one in two rooms in our house: the bedroom where Scarlett currently sleeps and the nursery where she naps and will be sleeping soon. We change diapers in both places regularly and love the convenience of having a pail nearby. It makes it so much easier than having to tote dirty diapers up and down stairs!
Being that Scarlett is on breastmilk exclusively, she isn’t the stinkiest baby yet. You’d still never know we had a pile of diapers in our room thanks to the Ultimate Odor Lock Protection. Even in the nursery Diaper Genie® that we don’t use quite as often yet and therefore don’t change as often, there’s no smell being released. I’ve been amazed at how well it locks in the smell of my one-year-old nephew, who has a much different diet and different type of stinky left behind!
Scarlett actually loves having her diaper changed – it’s one of the easiest ways to make her happier. I love that I don’t even have to spare a thought for throwing away the diaper when changing her; it allows me to focus purely on playing with my little girl and seeing her enjoy herself! That’s the thing with Diaper Genie® – it’s quality performance that moms can trust.
We purchased our Diaper Genie® from Target. Actually, a good chunk of Scarlett’s nursery is from Target, including much of the furniture and the crib. It’s quite the destination for baby supplies – I can’t tell you how many trips we took when preparing for her arrival! For a limited time at Target, receive a free $5 Target GiftCard with the purchase of any Diaper Genie® product, starting 7/8 – 7/14/18.
