Those of you not using a diaper pail, what are you using in your nursery? Although I did receive one, I am starting to wonder whether I will actually need it, esp since the refills are quite $$ for diaper disposals!
Our house is not all that big. We learned with DS it was easier to just throw diapers in the dumpster outside. It may not work for everyone, but that's what worked best for us. With DS we had started with the Diaper champ, but his room still was really stinky even after the bag was taken out.
a small garbage can, you can see here
I'm going with the stainless garbage can. DH was set that we were getting the Arm and Hammer pail. I've FINALLY talked him out of it. The refills are so expensive. This seems to be a popular question in the Nurseries and Baby Gear section and I've heard lots of good things about just having a stainless garbage can. I'm excited that it can be used in different rooms after baby too!
This item is actually on my black friday list! Bed Bath and Beyond have had them on sale in the past and with a coupon I hope to get a steal (if not I'll buy it anyways!).
We got a small Simplehuman trash can from Target with a step lid. It has a liner in it that can come out for cleaning. Plastic trash bags from the grocery store fit in it perfectly! I take the poopy diapers outside right away but DH doesn't & it has never been a problem.
I didn't put one on my registry because I don't see the point, the refills are so expensive. I'd rather throw it in an old shopping bag (we have a ton)
My MIL has said she wants to get us one though, I explained why I didn't plan on getting one and I think she still wants to. I guess it is up to her.

To my angels- I held you every second of your lives and I'll love you every second of mine.
My family always flushed the waste and then rolled the diaper up. That way you don't have completly dirty diapers sitting in the trash can.
Even though the nursery is not right next to our bathroom, I may do this.
We have a trash can similiar to this and I bought these (see below) and some 3mm sticky to stick them on the lid-on the inside of the trash can to help with the smell cheaper and saves me some space!
