Changing diapers is one of those unavoidable, messy parts of parenting that you can’t get around. However, while you can’t control how many messy diapers you have to change, you can hide dirty and smelly diapers. You can either choose a diaper pail specifically made for babies or you can elevate things with a regular trash can. That way, no one will ever know what’s inside.
No only do trash cans hide the mess, but many are odor-locking so you can keep unwanted smells from escaping into the house. Most hold a large amount too, up to around 55 diapers, so you don’t have to take out the trash as often as smaller bins. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best diaper pail trash cans that will make their nursery more pleasant to be in.
