    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    I've had four babies and honestly never, ever wanted one. Maybe it would have changed my life, but I don't think so

    I was planning to buy one and then changed my mind. My sister ended up being given one that she didn't need (already has one) so she gave the other one to me. It is 2nd hand and because the cartridges are quite expensive we just use Nappy Sacks instead. It has been very handy to have near the change table and am glad we accepted it

    I bought one new as a brand new first time Mum and wish I hadn't. I have found it a waste of money to be honest. It's alright to use and definitely does the trick, but buying the re-fills and emptying it etc, is more trouble than its worth. I still have 3 un-used refills that most likely won't get used as I much prefer to just bag up the nappies and throw them straight into the wheelie bin.

    Totally essential! Best item we had/ have

    DD is nearly 2.5 (about to start TT) and we're still using it.

    I found it so convenient, as our outdoor bin is quite a trek from where her room is. There is zero smell if it's used properly and the lid is shut. I found it much better than using individual bags each time. Much easier to just throw it in the bin and shut the lid. We empty it when it's full, which is once every few days, and I have no issue with that. The nappies are all sealed off and closed off, and there is no odour.

    waste imo. I just chuck it in a nappy bag and put it straight in the outside bin.

    Id be surprised if anyone thought they were really that necessary?

    I found ours really valuable because no way did I want to make sure I was dressed appropriately to go out to the wheelie bin (in full view of the street) every time I changed a nappy!

    I have 2.. One upstairs and one downstairs. Couldn't imagine not using one!
    I get refills on eBay (much cheaper and delivered!!) and I have one - uubi diaper pail - that uses garbage bags.
    Not a waste in my opinion at all!!!!

    I got one at baby expo and think its a luxury item. Haven't used it yet. But I think after talking to friends that it depends on location of bin outside to your house?!?! Eg my baby's room is the top floor and it would be three flights of stairs to walk outside to the bin everytime. So in my head it will be awesome!!! (Though again its a few weeks away til I get to use it!)
