A Few of My Favorite Things - Volume One

New year, new series!  My new goal for Fridays is to let you know about a product that I can't live without!  As a new mom there is so much out there to choose from that it's hard to know what is and isn't necessary.  While every child is different, my goal is to share with you the products I trust and rely on.  Our first favorite thing is...

The Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail by Munchkin!

I grew up babysitting and nannied through college.  During that time I developed a distaste for diaper pails.  They never seemed to work right, were hard to use, didn't contain the smell.  I wasn't even sure if I wanted one.  When I saw the Arm & Hammer Diaper Pail I was intrigued by the concept of using baking soda to contain the smell.  It was touted as easy to use by their website, reviews and a friend who had a baby three months before I did.  I figured, what the heck, and added it to my registry.

Five months later and I can tell you that I never thought I would love a diaper pail!  First, it is easy to use.  With my infant on my hip I can easily open the pail and put the diaper in.  Second, it does a fabulous job of containing the smell!  I love that it disperses baking soda EVERY time I close the lid!  Not to mention it does this cool, twisty thing that seals the bag after each nasty diaper is deposited.  No longer am I confused and frustrated trying to switch out the bags either!  You just snap the bag shut and take it out to the trash!  So easy!

As an added bonus, and an example of how well this pail works, I went away for a week at Thanksgiving.  Having major mommy brain, I forgot to empty the pail before I left.  There wasn't a hint of odor when I returned a week later!  Who would have thought that a diaper pail could mask dirty diapers for a week when they're just sitting there!  I am truly in awe of this diaper pail!

If you're in the market for a diaper pail, I highly recommend picking up this fabulous find!  You won't regret it!
