    Default Nappy Disposal System v Plastic Bags

    Hi Ladies

    Just wanting people's opinions on Nappy Disposal Systems. Are they any good? Worth getting or better off just chucking the dirties in a plastic bag every time?

    Thanks in advance

    I had a nappy bin, used it a couple of times and then started using scented nappy bags in the garbage,

    They are a waste of money in my opinion. I had one and never used it, the scented nappy bags are good enough.

    I would use a nappy system if I lived in an apartment and didn't want to keep going up and down stairs to put it in the big garbage, but when I'm nannying I just use nappy sacks and chuck them straight into the big bin.

    I love love love my nappy bin! I rate it as one of the best 'baby' things I got

    I have the Sangenic Tommy Tippee one, and it's awesome. I've used it from birth until now, and DD is almost 2.

    There is zero smell - even when it's full - and it's so convenient! We empty it about once every 4-5 days, and you just pop the nappy/ wipes in the bin, twist the top, and close it. So easy.

    I also like that if the nappy is a BAD one, you can leave the bin lid open, and just drop wipes straight in as you use them. No trying to put stuff in a bag one handed, or accidentally dropping it out of the bag/ getting some on the outside - both of which I have done.

    I actually get really irritated when I have to use nappy bags if the bin is full!

    I always put into a plastic bag and threw them straight in the outside bin.
    The thought of nappies inside just gross me out.

    Thanks ladies for your comments so far I'm liking the idea of the convenience. Though we don't have stairs to tackle every time, our garbage bin is basically on the other side of the house to the front door and I can see this getting very tedious very quickly!

    Yeah, ours was the same. It was a bit of a trek from the nursery to outside, and then round the side of the house to where the bins are.

    The nappy bin is next to the change table

    I had an Angelcare nappy bin - it was great for keeping smells away. I got rid of it as the refills were very expensive, I think around $16 per roll.. For a roll of plastic that was pretty expensive!

    I agree 100% but it would seem that for the most part we are the minority! I have found that a lot of people disagree - I have no idea why?!
