Yeah I will just have to use a diaper genie, sounds like you all don't have pets, or very well behaved ones. Haha. We actually use a diaper genie for normal bathroom trash, because my dog can open up any trash can.
Thanks for the suggestions though! I will probably change on the bed and keep either the diaper genie or wet bag close by.
I don't have much advice on the diaper changes. She sleeps from like 11-4 and we have changes right before that and right after she wakes up, so.. I don't have the need to change her in the middle of the morning. However, I did want to comment on the pets. I'm still wearing a pad - plus her diapers add up to much enticement for my little girl dog. We have to keep the bathroom door closed because she'll steal whatever is in the trash in there. So, Julie's diapers get thrown away. But then again, I'm having issues getting her to lay down in the bassinet so...possibly when I actually get to sleep in the bed, her diapers will probably just get put where the dog can't reach them until morning.
Mine usually pooped while I was feeding them overnight. Our routine was: wake, feed, DH changes, snuggle and "top-off" the feed till back asleep. Ours seem to explode while eating, so I always had a waterproof little pad under their butts in case their diaper leaked. It took two complete bedding changes to get the hang of that.
DH and I just set the wetbag up in a trashcan (similar to the simple human ones) to prevent the dogs from getting to things. The changing zone was in our room until they were STTN and in their own space.
A couple of drops of tea tree oil into the wetbag will help with any smells. I didn't find we needed to use disposables overnight until the baby was STTN. Once they slept longer stretches (more than 4 hours, but not all the way through) we doubled diapers with hemp inserts.
We have a co-sleeper. The changing table is just outside our room, in the hallway (maybe I'm strange, but I find that breastmilk poops still really stink). My usual routine with the others has been feed one side, get up, change (with only a nightlight if possible) then feed the other side and put baby back down. That way baby isn't screaming for food during the diaper change but gets calmed down enough by milk (hopefully) to fall back asleep.
We CD during the day but use disposables at night. Mine have always leaked through cloth at night.
For maybe the first 6 weeks with DS3 we had to change at every feeding day and night because he'd poop every time. I really try to only change if there's a poop (or baby is soaked) because it's so hard to get them back to sleep after.

nak-We co-sleep and I will very shortly be putting a waterproof matress cover on our bed for leaks. I change diapers on the bed at night and I always put something waterproof underneath because she pees/poops mid diaper change at leasat half the time and i am not interested in changing our sheets at 3am! I change the diapers whenever she poops or if she feels very wet-i can usually smell the wet diaprs so know she needs a change. sometimes i will ask dh to chage them so i dont haave to get up. we keep a trash can in our room and diapers/wipes get thrown in there. we dont allow our cat in our room at all so we dont have to worry about the trash.
I only change if they poop, try to keep it to a minimum just like others said.
We do cloth at night as well. Once he starts STTN I will probably do a fitted; right now we just use prefolds at night just like during the day. When they STTN is when I stop changing overnight at all.
I just make sure there are about 3 dipes in the bedroom (his changing table is set up in his room) and a wetbag. And yeah, it doesn't really smell so I don't have problems with that at all.
We have a cosleeper but he hates it so I bought a Rock n Play and its awesome.
