Right now I keep dd's diaper pail next to the changing table in her room. Every other day, I pull the PUL bag out, replace it with the empty bag, and take it to the basement to wash. Now that dd's diet is changing, we sometimes have to rinse in the toilet (just got a sprayer today! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">). But then what? Do I keep a second pail in the bathroom, which is down the hall from the baby's room (I would need to get more PUL to make more bags then)? Having 2 pails sound like a pain for washing. Do I just move the existing pail to the bathroom and have to add an extra few steps to every diaper change?

We EC with dipes, so when we have messy dipes what I do is put the dipe in her little toilet (next to changing table), go over to the bathroom to spray it all off, and then back to the pail by changing table. (Obviously, you could just get a little bucket for this kind of thing). Have also used the lid of the pail before too.

I would get a small PUL bag for on the bathroom door. That way when you are doing laundry you could grab th smaller bag and it would mak it easier and you would have no extra pail to get in the way<br><br>

I keep my pail in DS's bedroom... but it is close the the BR. After he started eating solids, I started doing laundry more often... especially during that transitional poo...

I keep my pail in ds's bedroom. If he has a poopy diaper, I take the diaper into the bathroom, dump it and then back to ds's room to put it in the pail. Occasionally he likes to poop after I've put him down for a nap. In that case I change him, put him back to bed, and take both the soiled diaper and the pail to the bathroom. I'll put the pail back into his room after his nap.<br><br>
Granted the bedroom and bathroom are very close, but I don't mind the few extra steps. We don't have room in the bathroom for another diaper pail.

We have one in the *nappy room* and one in the bathroom.<br><br>
Nappy room one is for just wets.<br>
Bathroom one is for stinkies!!<br><br>
Once they are both full, it's a good load for the machine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I keep my pail in the laundry room which is right by my son's room and the bathroom. I have a little plastic basket that I keep on the changing table / dresser. When I take off the dirty diaper, I put it in the basket. Once he's changed, we take the dirty diaper out and if it's wet, it goes into the pail. If it's a poopy diaper, I take it to the bathroom in the basket, put on rubber gloves, scrape, wring out, put it back in the basket and dump diaper in the pail in the next room. No dripping poopy water. The way our bathroom is set up is funky and there's no room for a diaper pail. The toilet and tub are in a tiny separate area that's sectioned off from the rest of the bathroom.<br><br>
In your situation, if you have room for a pail in the bathroom, I would just put it in there for all dirties.

I'm thinking that I'm not that bothered by poo or something? LOL I roll out the solid poos into the toilet and put the diaper into the regular pail by the changing table.. we got one of those step-on-it-and-the-lid-goes-up pails and it's great! It's in our shared bedroom and I don't have issues at all... maybe my boy's poo doesn't stink? haha!! j/k! He's only 9 months, that may have something to do with it!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

We are a bit unconventional with pails, since we kinda didn't know what we were doing with CDing when we started. I bought an extra laundry basket, and kept it in the shower of dd's bathroom. She always took a bath in our bathroom, so no one ever used her bath. I shook off the poo in the toilet and put the diaper in the basket. I guess the smell either doesn't bother me too much either or her poo doesn't smell!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Seriously it's never been really stinky. I wash every other day or every third day. She only poops once a day (we started at 10 months with cloth and she was down to once a day poops) and most of the time we catch them in the toilet. What we didn't catch we'd just shake in the toilet. If it was soft or if I couldn't get it off in the toilet, I'd spray it with the shower thingy and put it in the basket and just wash the diapers that day. We used this method until she potty learned at 21 months.

We keep our pail in the bathroom(really convenient for me because the washer is in there too), but I change her all over the house, so it is just a good location for it for us.

I just keep the pail in dd's room - I have to go into my bathroom if we spray off a dipe, there's no room for a pail or bag even in there so I have to take it out anyway, and dd's room is across the hall from mine so I just put the dipes in the pail in her room. it is right inside the door so I just toss it in as I walk by

We keep the diaper pail in the bathroom. From there I take it down to the laundry every other day. If ds gets a now rare soft poop I will usually wash them right away.

We keep the pail in the bathroom. We have a Potty Pail and the poop diapers get sprayed/rinsed and then go right into the dry pail. We have a "cozy" cottage style house, so it's like a ten step journey from the nursery (which is really just a room for the changing table and all of DS's stuff) to the bathroom to deposit the pee diapers, too.
