How to Keep the Baby’s Room Smelling Great

Wrap it up.

"I reuse plastic grocery bags to seal dirty diapers before tossing them. They hold the smell in just fine, poop doesn’t seep out into the diaper pail, and they're free!" —Kim Young, mom of three, Carbondale, Illinois

Make that room laundry-fresh.

"I tuck fabric softener sheets beneath the baby’s changing pad and in the nursery trash can. It keeps the whole room smelling nice." —Catherine Lively, mom of four, Houston, Texas

Relocate.

"We avoid smelly-room syndrome by changing the baby in other rooms. I have a diaper caddy that holds all the necessities, and a waterproof mat. I'm more comfortable using air fresheners in, say, our living room than in the one where my baby will be sleeping." —Erin Smykay, mom of two, Kansas City, Missouri

Do an oil change.

"I take a few drops of tea tree oil, which you can find at most drug stores, and rub it on the underside of the diaper pail with a wipe. It smells so clean, and it also acts as a sanitizer." —Allison McDonald, mom of two, Seattle, Washington

Avoid sour sheets.

"Don't let your baby go to bed with a bottle in hand. The leaky milk will turn fresh sheets into smelly ones overnight. Your dentist will thank you, too, because bottles in the bed can cause tooth decay." —Claire McCrary, mom of four, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Take it outside.

"With our second daughter, we didn’t even bother with a diaper pail—we just escorted dirty diapers straight into the outside trash can!" —Tiffany Morris, mom of two, Fayetteville, Arkansas
