    you can get toxoplasmosis from coming into contact with animal and human poo, and im sure you are aware that toxo is harmfull to unborn babies

    i have never heard of this, nor have i seen anyone flush the poo before chucking in the bin. its just crazy. and i certainly wont be doing it thats for sure.

    I used to flush the hard ones but I forgot the flush one day and it stuck to the bottom of the loo and it took AGES for DH to get it off.

    We bin now.

    Disposables altogether should never have existed, what an irresponsible, short-sighted invention. I am surprised so many people still don't care about the environment when we are now so aware of the implications of (literally) trashing it.

    Im disgusted that DHs grandmother 'invented' disposable nappies = she BURNT any pooey cloth nappies rather than wash. Then the church would find her MORE (During WWII)nappies and she'd burn them again! The church had no idea that she was so wasteful, and whats worse - My inlaws BRAG about how wasteful she was.
    Just criminal.

    Flush, absolutely. I mostly use cloth, but use sposies occasionally too, and I always make sure poop gets flushed.

    I'm not sure, but are you suggesting that flushing your toddlers poo could cause toxoplasmosis?


    In any case, even if you aren't, toxoplasmosis cannot be spread from human to human.

    Cats can become infection from eating wild animals, so if you do not handle their poo or if you have a cat that has never eaten a wild animal you don't have to worry about your cat anyway.

    "Toxoplasmosis is not transmitted from person to person spread except in-utero."

    Your bin will smell so bad where you live if you don't flush before you bin! Just a word of advice.

    Just on the smell front - I live in QLD and my bin has never got smelly through putting cat litter/ nappies in it. All my nappies go into a Sangenic nappy bin first, so they're all wrapped up and don't smell too bad. And the cat litter is bagged up first too.
