Baby Proof Diaper Pail
Any suggestions for a diaper pail? I have a very basic one, my little guy is always taking the lid off. And now grabbing diapers out of. I've tried not to make a big deal out of it - hoping he'd loose interest. But that's getting a little hard, when he's grabbing for poopies.

I have 7 gallon and 14 gallon diaper pails that will keep babies out. They are made of recycled plastic, have locking handles and can hold cloth or disposable diapers. They are smooth inside so they are easy to clean. I have 1 - 7 gallon in stock with the filter lid and expect to have the 14 gallon pails in stock next week and more of the 7 gallon pails here the beginning of January.
If you already have a pail, feel free to email or call me and we can discuss ways to make that one work too!

when I did day care, I kept a small plastic garbage can with a tight fitting lid, in my garage, just right out side the door, I believe that is where they be long.

Use a bungie cord. It sounds silly, but it works. If it works for raccoons, it'll work for kids.

The only one that I can think of that has a built in way of keeping him from touching them would be the diaper genie. Maybe you could incorparate with your little guy what trash is and how we throw it away and it goes bye bye. help him to understand that poop is dirty and we dont want to touch it. Hope this helps. :)

I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it! Yuck! :P
Anyhow...we got a super cheap plastic garbage can (small) with the screw-top lid. Worked great, and then we had no problem tossing it a year later when we'd moved on to pullups. At that point we just ziplocked them and put them in the regular garbage.

The Diaper Genie II has a very tight lid, which I'm pretty sure would be impossible for him to open since it takes a bit of strength for me, and it's got a "trap door" so no way for him to get to diapers. The Diaper Genie II used A LOT less plastic tubing as well. We love ours! Good luck!

I've been to a few stores that had a Diaper Champ in the family rooms and thought they worked really well. I never had one at home, since my husband insists that diapers must go outside in the garage garbage cans.
