New Mom Must-Have! Diaper Genie Elite Diaper Pail

Disclosure 1

You know I think one of the things that I forgot about when I became a mom again was how many diapers babies go through on a daily basis. It’s just a fact of life. You will be dealing with lots and lots of stinky diapers. The other fact of life? Stinky diaper disposal. Here’s what I didn’t want … 1.) Keep dirty diapers in the house where they make my house stinky 2.) Constantly be running outside to throw a dirty diaper away

That’s why a diaper pail is a must in any home with a baby! We loved the Playtex Diaper Genie® when Lucas was a baby and are now using it again with Amelia. We recently received the Diaper Genie® Elite Diaper Disposal System with a new odor absorbent Carbon Filter to test out and it does a wonderful job of containing odors.


Diaper Genie Elite Diaper Pail at a Glance:

  • The all-in-one diaper pail helps control odors, contain germs and makes diaper disposal easy
  • NEW! With safe, natural activated carbon filter to absorb strong diaper odors.
  • Double-lock pail design and multi-layer refill helps seal in odors and germs
  • Antimicrobial protection inhibits odor-causing bacteria
  • Ergonomic design with foot pedal allows for easy, hygienic ,hands-free opening
  • Elite Pail holds up to 38 newborn diapers
  • Refill holds up to 270 newborn diapers

My favorite feature is the Diaper Genie Elite Ultimate Odor Lock System, which is a double-lock design that seals away odors each time you drop in a dirty diaper. It basically provides a barrier between where the dirty diapers are stored and the top of the pail where you toss the diapers in. There are diaper pails on the market that DO NOT offer this. In fact, I was using one with Amelia because it was gifted to us and I was very unhappy with it!


The foot pedal is also a nice feature when you are holding a baby in one arm and a dirty diaper in the other!

We also received the Playtex® Diaper Genie® refills and Nursery Fresh refills (cheaper and by another brand) so that we could compare how each performs. Immediately, you notice a difference! The off brand refills were much more difficult to insert into the Diaper Genie. Even removing them was tougher. So much so that the refill case came apart as I was trying to remove. We even noticed that the lid did not seem to close as securely with the off brand refills.  Playtex® Diaper Genie® refills definitely win! They are super easy to insert (they literally slide right in) and they have a better fit in the pail allowing the lid to close more securely. Less secure = odor leakage = stinky room! We definitely do not want that!
