7 Best Diaper Pail Refills

Here are some of the best diaper pail refills on the market.

If you are planning on cloth diapering, you can use a diaper pail, but you might want to consider buying a wet bag instead. Wet bags hold in the odors, and you can even buy wet bags that are small enough for when you are out. You can use a diaper pail at home though if you choose to. A pail can probably hold more cloth diapers than most wet bags will. It is entirely up to you on which one you choose, both would work just fine.

Final Verdict

While a diaper pail can be a very useful item in your baby’s nursery, you might want to do some research beforehand. You might want to choose a pail that will also accept some of the generic brand refills to help you save some money. Pails can be a great thing to have. If you haven’t had any children yet, some soiled baby diapers can smell absolutely horrendous. There are plenty of different pails out there that you can choose from. There are also a lot of different refills to choose from as well.

Different brands

There are name brand refills that will match the brand of the pail that you bought. There are also a lot of generic branded refills that can fit different pails. If you buy a certain pail, you will want to ensure you buy the right sized refills. Some brands require a certain size and type of refill with a specific pail. A diaper pail can save you a lot of trips to the trash can, especially at 2 am. As with any other item you buy for your baby, you will want to conduct thorough research before making a hasty purchase.

One thing to also remember is that newborns will soil diapers a lot more than a six-month-old will. If you find that your pail is filling up really quickly, it may be because your tiny baby is soiling more than they will be in a few short months. But, as they get bigger, they will also go up in diaper sizes, which can also cause your pail to fill up faster. You might need to try a few different types of refills to find the ones that block odors and hold the right amount of diapers for you. It can be a trial and error process until you find the right fit for you and your little one.
