By the time an infant is three years old, modern parents will have used about 5,000 dirty diaper, changing diapers alomost eight times a day till the infant is seven months old. Mental problem? Sure. But for parents, a more immediate problem is the odor problem. That is where a diaper pail (a fanciy term for can) comes in.
A good diaper pail provides a manageable balance between odor control and ease of use.
Basically, a diaper pail deals with odor issue by having a very close fitting lid, or a multi chamber solution, or they freshen the air inside using a carbon filter or a scented baking soda puck.
