Stage ONE - You are thrilled about this first little one that you are expecting and don't take a second thought when registering for the LATEST and GREATEST model disposable diaper container out there! Perhaps you might register for the Diaper Genie ELITE Pail (double locked, convenient foot petal, no messy residue!) Only the best for your little ones messy poos and guaranteed to leave your nursery smelling clean and fresh!
Stage TWO - Forget those fancy genie pails, who can afford all of those scented, custom bag inserts?!? You decide to go for a basic diaper pail with a lid that allows you to use regular garbage bags. Of course, the scent lingers with this container so you find a convenient closet to put your pail in. You have learned to hold your breath every time you open and shut the door and the door is closed in record speed! You also dart after house guests like a mad dog when they go towards your hall linen closet to stop them from opening the door. You assure them that you already put fresh towels in their room and they are laying on the bed all ready for them. There's nothing in this closet you want to smell, I mean see.
Stage THREE - Your sheets & linens are starting to reek of dirty diapers from that closet bin so you decide the only way to go is to walk every dirty diaper outside immediately. Of course, who wants to take the time to do that multiple times a day. So you bag each diaper with a grocery bag (FREE bags) and then toss it out your front door like a true Olympic shot put thrower (15 feet away) hoping to have it land close to the garbage but off of the sidewalk so that the next time you are out you can throw it directly into the giant green garbage can. If you live in MN, you hope that your guests don't notice the small random frozen bags next to the sidewalk...either way though it definitely takes care of the whole smelly problem to begin with :-)
