I received tons of baby and motherhood advice before having Dominic.  One piece of advice that I did not take seriously was to set up a second changing station in the house.  I had created an organized station in the nursery, but a second station in the living room or our bedroom was not something I had originally planned on.

Fast forward to Dominic being born, John Paul and I were adjusting to being new parents, and we set up a second changing station in our living room!  We have never looked back and I will not get rid of this until all of our babies (Dominic and any future babes) are out of diapers!  It has been a HUGE help.

We set this up because in the beginning, Dominic was going through diaper changes so quick that having to bring him upstairs every time he needed to be changed was exhausting and painful having had a c section. We were already tired from being up all night with a newborn, so we tried to simplify our lives in any way we possibly could. Now comes in the second changing station! We set up the pack and play, stocked it up with diapers, wipes, toys, lotions, and of course our trusty, Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail and Diaper Genie® 2pk Refill .

Having to throw out dirty diapers in the garbage outside or upstairs in the nursery was just not ideal. We needed an easier way to toss the dirty diapers. So we put a Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail right next to the changing station in the living room and it makes the whole changing process so easy. It is so simple to use and with the foot pedal, I can be hands free to tend to Dominic. This is especially helpful these days as Dominic is a little wiggle worm.

Now, I know having a diaper pail may not be something you really want in your living room, BUT the Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail has ultimate odor lock protection so you won't even know that it is there.  There is a carbon filter and the bag is 7 layers so it can lock in and absorb all the dirty diaper odors.  Since I have a lot of white in my house, I went with a white Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail, but there are other colors to choose from to fit your style!

I picked up my Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail and Diaper Genie® 2pk Refill at Target in the baby aisle. Target is my go to baby store so I knew they would have everything I needed to add a second changing station in our home. There is an awesome promo going on from 7/8/18-7/14/18, receive a $5 Target Giftcard with the purchase of any Diaper Genie® product.

We have loved having this second changing station downstairs in our living room.  It has made changing so quick and convenient.  The Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail is simple to use, you can easily replace the bag, and has effective odor control.  Anything to make our lives easier is a win in my book!!

I highly recommend creating a small area in your living room to change your baby. It doesn't have to be a full pack and play, but just a designated area to store all the changing essentials including a Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail! You will be one happy Mama!!
