I received the Diaper Champ as a baby shower gift and boy am I glad I have it! Having used the Diaper Genie with my twins and not liking the twist action, the need to buy refill bags and the hassle of pulling out a string of smelly diapers when it got full, I was liking the Diaper Champ even before I tried it!
The Diaper Champ works with a regular shopping bag. You place the bag inside the Diaper Champ and wrap the handles around the bag holders that are inside the pail. Then, close the top and it's ready to use! Putting soiled diapers in it is also just as easy, drop them in the shoot, grab the handle and lift the handle up and over to the other side. There is a weighted cylinder inside the shoot the pushes the diaper into the pail when the handle is turned. It holds a lot of soiled diapers! I only need to replace the bag once a week, every Monday on garbage day and spray it with Lysol. My son is still in size 1 or 2 diapers so if your baby is older their diapers will be bigger and hold a lot less.
Smell, what smell? The Diaper Champ does exactly what it says it will do - hold a crazy amount of soiled, smelly diapers without everyone knowing that a pail full of soiled, smelly diapers is in the room. The Diaper Champ will also save you money in the long run as there is no need to buy refills for the unit. I recommend the Diaper Champ as an excellent baby shower gift!
