View Full Version : "Toddler" Diaper Genie Refills???

Found something new in the Diaper Genie department at Target today: "Toddler" Refills. ???????????? They say they are for 9m and claim they better handle diaper smells once your kid is eating solid food. They are a whopping $5.99 by comparison to the "regular" and "wide-opening" refills (on sale this week, 2/$8). I was too cheap to go the extra $2 to try them. Anyone tried these?

(I'm posting on the Baby Bargains board, too, in case someone over there has tried them.)

I saw them at Toys r us and decided to try them out. They do seem to contain the smell better than the regular refills, but I don't know that they are worth an extra dollar each. Our city collects residential garbage twice a week so as long as we remember to empty the diaper genie we don't usually have a problem. I don't know that I will purchase them again, especially since we are expecting our second child within 4 weeks and they will be sharing the genie.

The toddler refills do reduce the smell in the nursery. If you don't empty the genie very often I would highly recommend them. Otherwise, they make difference, but so does taking out the garbage regularly.

This thread is old, so maybe you are done with this topic. We tried out the toddler refills and will continue to use them. They do a great job of containing the odor, which is important to me now because I'm pregnant with our second and have that "super nose". It was a lifesaver during the first trimester when I was sick.

I love the toddler refills. I don't smell diapers when I walk in the nursery.

I used them and have noticed that because they are so much thicker that they have torn up the ring inside the Diaper Genie. I noticed this on both my genies when changing the refill. I might go back to the thinner ones.

Yes, I have tried the "Toddler" refills. The only difference I noticed was the price.
