Speaking from mom-to-mom here, we all know that babies can get messy (and that’s an understatement!). If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ve heard all my stories about food flying across the room, getting stuck to the walls, toys in literally every crevasse of the house, and of course, the oh-so lovely diaper situation.
Can we just skip that part in parenting?
Unfortunately no, because specifically for this blog post, I want to focus on those dirty little demons that we as parents have to deal with every day of our parenting life: dirty diapers!!
Whether you like it or not, all of us are going to change hundreds of them throughout our child’s life.
So it’s best to get used to waking up to that lovely smell in the middle of the night!
But thankfully, there are some things you can do to make your diaper experience a little bit manageable and not so disgusting (praise the heavens). For example…
Have you ever heard of diaper pails? If not – oh honey, you’re missing out on quite a big diaper assistant here! Basically, they make everything run much smoother, and we’re going to dive into why today. So for this post, I’m going to share with you the best diaper pails on the market, and why you need to get one asap!
Best Diaper Pails
1 ♥ The Sweet Little Ubbi!
Alright, so let’s start with the sweet little Ubbi! I’ve only used a number of diaper pails in my parenting life, but this one has been one of my absolute favorites by far! This is an extremely high quality pail made of steel that doesn’t cost you tons of extra money due to it’s lack of need for special diaper bags.
How cool, right? And makes your changing process a lot easier!
It’s also ideal to have if you have destructive and mischievous children walking around (the exact definition of my kids) that may knock the pail over or try to peak in – as it has a special child-lock!
Talk about a parenting hack!
2 ♥ The Munchkin Step – One Step And Done!
This munchkin diaper pail was recommended to me by one of my close friends because of it’s beautiful promise to the environment. As many of you know from prior blog posts (like this one here on Harmful Chemicals in Baby Products), I’m all about saving the planet, and get this – purchasing one of these pails from this company, they make a promise to plant a tree for ever purchase.
How cool is that?
But aside from that side of it, this diaper pail is excellent for truly sealing in all the yucky smells, so you don’t have to worry about taking the trash out everyday. It’s also an easy step-to-seal feature, which makes it a quick clean-up if you have an extreme diaper crisis
Don’t look at me like that, you know what I’m talking about!!

3 ♥ Dekor Classic AKA The Money Saver!
The Decor Classic is another one of my favorites that I actually currently have in my nursery for my cloth diapers! Not only is it super cheap compared to most diaper pails (priced around $29.95 compared to average price of $70-$80)..
But it also comes with a triple action odor control feature to ensure you aren’t holding your breath every time you’re in the nursery.
And trust me, that’s something you’re definitely going to need.
It’s honestly made me so much happier knowing that I can toss dirty diapers in here and not have to worry about it, especially on those late night changing! I would strongly recommend this cheap diaper pail to anyone!
4 ♥ Baby Trend Champ – A True Champion!
Baby Trend Champ is, well, a champ! Although I’ve never used this little diaper pail myself, I have read tons of great diaper pail reviews from fellow mommy bloggers about all it’s incredible must-have features!
For starters, the trend champ is not only another affordable option for parents on a budget (approx. $34.99), but it also a high capacity diaper holder, which basically means you don’t have to stress about taking it out 5 times a day!
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this baby, and I honestly would order it right now if I didn’t already have one! Maybe I can sneak it past the hubby…
5 ♥ Safety First Easy Saver – Easy Changer!
Yet another budget friendly diaper pail that I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about (this is a common theme here). My closest friend has gone through tons and tons of diaper pails over the years, and has found her way to this little baby now, and absolutely loves it!
She tells me that not only is it true to it’s claim to contain odors for extended periods of time, but she truly feels this is one of the most effective pails on the market that truly gets the job done better than other that are priced way higher!
So parents, if you’re looking for an easy, cheap, and effective diaper pail, I think you’ve found your true love!
Overall, there are tons of diaper pails on the market that you can choose from, but from my experience and research, these are the best!
I would honestly say that having a diaper pail is a necessity as a parent, as it makes your life so much easier, cleaner, and odor-free (hallelujah). Next time you’re at the store, go out on a lim, and try one of these! I can promise you will not be disappointed (and your nose and house guests will thank you for it too!).
