I don't do the whole diaper pail thing- just stick poo diapers in the main trash and take the trash out and we don't have any issues with smell. pee diapers generally don't smell at all so I can fill up the bathroom trashcan with them without a problem (potty training).
I've heard if you ARE going to get one- the champ is the one to go with. The Genie sucks because you have to buy special bags for it.. and they come out looking like a long string of linked poop sausage. appetizing!
ive never used the champ, sounds interesting.... i have the elite and i love it. it isnt anything like the old diaper genie, i have had both. keeps smells out great! holds a ton of diapers, downfall a refill costs five dollars just about... however i dont totally fly threw one bag that fast. changing bags, is sooo easy, and you just press the pedal with your foot drop in the diaper let go it shuts and is all taken care off. when you need to change the bag its also supser easy. though if the champ is good at keeping out smells sounds like you can save a few bucks on refills. good luck. id like to add generally nursing babies dont smell, but if you have a sensitive nose like me you might not want to put pee diapers in a trashbag for more then one day. i put my kids diapers in the bathroom trash before their shower and if i forget to change the bag the day it smells like yucka pee in the bathroom i cant stand the smell, im very picky about that. even teh old diaper genie would leak smells that would drive me crazy! this one is great.
I have the first years diaper pail and I really like it. You can't leave diapers sitting in there for a week because then it starts to smell but for a few days it's fine (who wants diapers sitting around that long anyway). Plus it uses regular trash bags. I just keep it in an area where we don't sit all of the time.
Don't get a diaper genie, they get SOOO expensive after awhile with their weird twisty, turning bags. Gets to be a huge PITA!
We have a diaper champ and I LOVE the thing! It works so easily, uses regular bags, keeps in the smell and holds quite a bit. I seriously love mine!!
