Awesome Diaper Pail

Some of you might not find this to be the most exciting post.  However, I spent a lot of time when I was pregnant debating about how we were going to handle having a house full of dirty diapers.  Seriously, I spent way too much time thinking about this and looking on amazon and talking to CJ.  Basically though, I just didn't want to get a diaper pail like the Diaper genie or the Diaper Dekor or the Munchin one.  I was worried that the plastic would retain the smell and I also wanted something that would look nice in the nursery and use regular old garbage bags.  Then, I found it...the Diaper Pail...The Ubbi.

Ubbi Steel Diaper Pail

It was perfect.  Steel.  Simple.  Selection of colors.  Easy to use.  Great reviews.  Regular old garbage bags, check.

The only problem.  It was $80.  So, being the practical, thrifty person that I am.  I decided no, I would not spend $80 on a diaper pail.  Back to going through all the diaper pails all over again.  I even tried to find a steel trash can that would work (some of those were even more expensive though.)

Finally, I just decided that it was worth it to me to spend the $80 on this diaper pail that I loved.

The end result...I'm still totally in love with The Ubbi.  It is perfect.  It looks awesome in the nursery.  It holds a ton of diapers.  I can just drop diapers in, I don't need to push them through.  Our garbage bags work great!!  No smell at all outside of the can.  Absolutely no complaints except for the price.  I've even been tempted to get a 2nd one for our living room next to the changing tables so that we don't have to carry the dirty diapers into the kitchen, but so far I've held off.  I would say it is totally worth the money.  I love how it looks and it just works perfectly in our nursery.  I bet you didn't know anyone could get so excited about a diaper pail...or spend so much money.

What baby-related purchases did you splurge on??  Have you loved it or been disappointed??


  1. Ahhh! I'm so glad to see a diaper pail review! As a house with four cats, two of whom are OBSESSED with anything stinky and will move heaven and earth to dig it out, a good pail is critical. I will take your review seriously! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh wow. Now I really want this. We have the Diaper Champ and while it's great we can use regular garbage bags it is way too short and fills up too fast, and also one stinky poop can stink up the entire room. But $80.... ughhhhh... I still want it! I didn't splurge on anything and now I'm paying for it. Luckily my mom isn't afraid to spend money and gets me better versions of the cheap stuff I got. Like the Baby Bjorn. I registered for the cheapest one because I felt bad it was a pricey item and someone got it for us. But it's not supportive at all and gives me a backache. My mom bought the one with really good back support and wound up just giving it to me because I loved hers so much and she bought herself a new one. Thanks Mom! :-)
