I have recently been around various first time pregnant women who have been soaking up the wisdom of experienced mothers. The diaper genie has come up and this has been very interesting. There is one camp that thinks they are a waste of money. You can just throw the diaper in the garbage. There is another camp that loves the convenience and not having to smell stinky diapers. And there is one clever lady that came up with a great compromise. She buys the scented garbage bags. You get a whole roll for a few dollars and its much cheaper than a diaper genie!
