If there is one reality that comes with a newborn besides a loss of sleep, it’s well, dirty diapers. If there is one gift that every new mom needs, it’s a Diaper Genie!
For those of you who don’t know, Diaper Genie is the most amazing diaper pail around. No new mom wants her brand new nursery to smell like dirty diapers, and Diaper Genie’s AIR-TITE system and 7-layer refill bag keep odors locked in! Plus, with it’s easy one-handed design, you just lift the lid and toss in the dirty diaper – it’s as easy as that!
Using Diaper Genie also has the benefit of letting you participate in the Mommy Time Rewards Program! Enrolling in the Mommy Time Rewards program is easy, and it’s easy to use! Once you enroll, and purchase Diaper Genie products, you can earn points toward rewards for your favorite products (hello Sephora!!) and services! If you didn’t know it already, the Mommy Time Rewards Program makes Diaper Genie totally worth it!
Diaper Genie also makes a great baby shower gift! In addition to making a great gift all by itself, you can make an ADORABLE Diaper Genie refill to make a diaper cake that will be a baby shower show stopper! I headed to Target to pick up a Diaper Genie and supplies to make a gorgeous gift for the assistant in my department at work who is expecting. This Diaper Genie cake is SO easy to make – it only takes about 15-20 minutes! You start with a single Diaper genie refill, size 1 diapers, and thin rubber bands. Start by rolling diapers, securing with a rubber band, and fill the center of the refill. Pack it tight so the diapers won’t move.
Next, you start building your cake around the outside of the Diaper Genie refill. Use small rubber bands to roll the diapers, but put a larger rubber band around them all to secure them around the edge.
Secure the rolled diapers all the way around – when you finish, it should look like this:
Then, take some colored duct tape and circle the diaper cake – you can do three stripes like I did, or get wider duct tape and put one stripe around the middle. You can also use ribbon, but the great thing about the duct tape is that it secures itself!
Then, secure a gorgeous bow and tag to the front. If found these great supplies in the party supply section at Target!
Now, every cake needs a little icing! I chose to make a sea creature themed cake to match the sea foam green tape I picked out. I selected some adorable bath toys at Target, and cut a small slit in the bottom of three of the toys with a knife. Then, I inserted coordinating paper drinking straws into the whole, and pushed the straws into the diapers in the center of the Diaper Genie refill – easy peasy!
Isn’t Diaper Genie refill cake adorable? And paired with a Diaper Genie – you have the perfect baby shower gift!
