Sometimes Parenting is Really Gross… But with Diaper Genie, It Doesn’t Have To Be! They are Now Making an Expression and an Impression on All Nurseries and Parents.
Babies are oh so cute. Surprise! They can also be oh so stinky. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but sometimes parenting is just plain GROSS. Let me tell you, the yuck factor only begins in the labor and delivery suite. It’s basically downhill from there. (All I’m going to say is “finger painting” and “diaper contents.” Mama, get ready!) Don’t worry; I’m a mom of three, so I am allowed — and even encouraged — to say these things. They need to be said. I am up to my eyeballs in wet and dirty diapers over here. I think I have earned the right to tell the truth. And I think we can all agree that motherhood is equal parts beautiful, and frighteningly messy. Kind of like a unicorn, trapped in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.
So I CANNOT EVEN explain to you how excited I was to find out that the geniuses behind the Diaper Genie are now offering these adorable “sleeves”, to dress up the already beloved pail. I mean, after all the hours you spent designing and executing the perfect nursery, why shouldn’t your diaper pail match your decor? Hashtag, priorities. Because your nursery might not be the Met, but you are going to spend a lot of time in there. We believe you deserve a pretty retreat, just as much as baby does.
What is a Diaper Genie, and why should you want one?
The experts say that baby will soil 9,600 diapers in the first three years of her life. That’s a lot of diapers! And with a new baby, you will soon find that you are constantly changing diapers. Do you really want to run to the trashcan over and over? Probably not. The Diaper Genie is the perfect, dare I say magical solution. Why so magical, you ask? Because it locks in the stink. Right there inside the diaper pail. There are few things worse than a funky-smelling nursery. (A tad bit melodramatic? Maybe, but still terrible.)
The Diaper Genie Expressions has a new double secure odor lock system with Push-N-Lock clamp, that helps prevent odors from escaping. It holds up to 50 newborn diapers, and is super easy to operate one-handed (which is what every parent needs). But it isn’t just functional. Now, it’s also PRETTY.
The Diaper Genie Expressions is the first, fully-customizable pail of it’s kind — thanks to the aforementioned sleeves. We found them super easy to slip on and off, and they are even machine-washable! Hashtag, thank goodness. Just choose the designer sleeve (or sleeves) that match your nursery (purchase separately). They come in a variety of colors and patterns like pink and grey, blue tile, grey clovers, blue knit, and pink starburst. So cute, right? Now sit back and wait, as the compliments roll in… I loved the Diaper Genie before, but these expressions really make a new impression in my baby girl’s nursery. A must-have nursery item that is perfect for the style-conscious mom.
In the beginning, motherhood is new and exciting (and sometimes even a little scary.) But it can quickly become monotonous, and even mundane. Motherhood is hard work. Why not keep things interesting when you can? In my opinion, Diaper Genie Expressions are the perfect way to add a little “life” to your nursery, and your diapering routine. But don’t just take my word for it; give it a try and let us know what you think! #justsaynotothestink
