In my limited experience, a diaper’s contents will have a profound affect on its disposal.
A diaper containing only urine is generally harmless. Roll it up and toss it in the waste basket without thinking twice about it. Out of sight, out of mind.
A diaper filled with feces, on the other hand, is an altogether different beast. Disposing of a poo diaper in the household waste basket could be one of the worst decisions you ever make in your life. Allow me to paint a better illustration: Do you own a Scentsy pot? You know how your Scentsy pot makes your entire house smell AMAZING? Well, a poo diaper sitting in your household waste basket will do the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.
You’ve been warned.
SIDENOTE: Is it not amazing just how bad a baby’s feces can smell? It blows my mind. Literally and figuratively.
