Ubbi Steel Odor Locking, No Special Bag Required Money Saving, Awards-Winning, Modern Design, Registry Must-Have Diaper Pail, White [link]
You only forget to lock it once or twice... ��
Trust me. Get this. It's on sale for $40. If you notice the other colors prices, it's normally $100. Put it on your Amazon registry first. Then get your welcome pack if you haven't already and the Skip Hop free toy promotion.
I have the grey version of the Steel pail. I love it. We just use regular scented kitchen bags. It only fills them up halfway but works great. One tip though: don't mash the diapers into it, just let it fill naturally. Otherwise the bag is harder to get out.
Oh sorry, only just now noticed this post was 2 months old.
The manufactuer in their demo bills the pail as not requiring special bags thus money savings (source). Probably Hanlon's razor as several people on the Amazon.com product page complain that the pail rips bags (search keywords "tear" and "rip" separately in the reviews).
>Ubbi, your diaper pail needs to go back to drawing board because there are major design flaws. See photo. I have had many garbage bags fail in this pail from Ubbi bags, to Hefty ultra strong flex, and now industrial strength 30 gl bags. The reason for this is the stupid lip this trash can has at the top for the seal and duel lid to act as an anti-smell capsule. Every time the bag will catch on this lip and tears. Fail at least once a week now and I have 2 kids
>This works great if you like to pick up diapers by hand when the bag tears open. Seriously. There are little downward facin tabs around the rim that sometimes snag the bag and can tear it open. Sometimes is too often IMHO when dealing with dirty diapers. My better half says it never happens and I do it wrong - don't know, I'm certainly not try to bare hand deal with the toxic contents and it's happened DOZENS of times over the last 3 years. When my last one is out of diapers I swear to Christ I'm gonna take an ax to this thing.
>I regret my purchase of this container. It doesn't hold nearly as many diapers as my last one and it's a pain to replace the bags. When them unit is full, it's horribly smelly to replace the bags and when you pull it out, the bag tears every time from the back hinge.
Apparently you may be using an older revision of the pail as the manufacturer commented on one of the bad reviews saying they had changed the product to make the bags not tear:
>Our latest Ubbi diaper pail models have:
>1. Smoother teeth on the bag holder, and are turned upward instead of downward
>2. A smoother cover to shield the jagged rim, so the bag doesn’t get stuck in between these teeth

Must haves (Diapering):
Ubbi Diaper Pail - The true genius of this is that it uses regular trash bags which will save you a lot of money. They also hold a lot of diapers and are easy to clean.
This ointment - This works better than anything else I have tried. It also is great for preventing rashes.
Must haves (Transportation):
Chicco Infant Carseat - Its not so much the brand that matters with these, although this one is definitely nice, as getting an infant carseat that you can easily click in and out of a carseat base.
Stroller that your carseat can click into - It can be a Simple frame stroller or a Fancy Stroller with an adapter or Something in between but you will want a stroller that you can easily click your carseat into. I had a frame stroller (This one for all you twin moms) for doctor appointments and quick outings, and a Baby Jogger Double Stroller for longer walks. I loved both. However, if this baby is your only child, I would recommend just getting one stroller that is nice enough for long walks but that also either holds a carseat or that you can get adapters for to hold the carseat.
Multi Purpose Carseat Covers - Babies are too little for masks, but these help protect them from weather and people getting too close. They also are great nursing/pumping covers.
Okay - I'm in a mood and got curious about the annual cost of popular diaper pails and how they compare.
Findings are as such
Prices based off Amazon Links Noted:
Not a necessity, but I have gifted Zutano booties to several people and they RAVE about them! I'm a FTM too but they're already on my Pinterest "registry".
I also hear great things about this diaper pail.
My mom friends also recommended registering for a bunch of footed sleepers for the early months, instead of other outfits, since baby will sleep so much anyway and you don't have to pull them over their head (which they generally don't like). And like the zutano booties above, they're easier than socks!
I would recommend this awesome diaper pail because you don't have to buy special bags. It just uses regular garbage bags. Save you money in the long run.
I love ours
A standard diaper pail with a cloth liner. We use it dry and haven't had any problems. Just need to wash the diapers and the liner every 2-3 days. Diaper pails are designed to keep the smell locked in (thank goodness!!)
Here's the one I got. The people at the baby store recommended it:

And I got 2 cloth liners so I can swap them out while the other one's in the wash:
