    Waste of money IMO, I just use a $5 kmart flip top bin and I use nappy sacks for poos.

    Ah well, if you have a nappy bin then it will sit in the nappy bin (tightly wrapped and odour free) for a few days and THEN go into the outside bin.

    And then, because it's all wrapped up and sealed in the plastic from the nappy bin, it doesn't smell, and there are no maggots.

    TBH, I can't even get my head around changing DD's nappy, putting it to one side (??), getting her down off the change table, carrying her and the poo nappy to the toilet, scraping off the poo (assuming I have put her down somewhere at this point), then wrapping it up and putting it in an outdoor bin. I think I would have had to TT her by the age of 2 days

    I cloth diaper. (Have a closed bin next to the change table)

    I don't put my own poo in the bin so wouldn't do it for any other human or animal. Just my way though, we all do things differently:

    Before switching to cloth nappies I didnt empty the poo (there is NO way my sons NOT SOLID, runny poo would come off) but I only ever got maggots if the things werent in properly sealed bags (dp ****es me off as he would just dump it in the bin despite me telling him to nappy sack it first)

    I also bin the cat litter, I wish I had a better alternative as I HATE the fact that my kitties make 2 bags of garbage a week but flushing is a BAD idea as the litter will clog your loo (even just the few small pieces stuck to the poop add up over time)

    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    Wow what did mums do before these new nappy bins were invented??
    I think it's all down to personal preference same as cloth vs disposable.
    I think there's a lot of stuff for babies that we don't actually need but which can make life easier, so if you think it will be easier for you to have a nappy bin then go for it. I have no experience yet as I'm pregnant with first bub, and we plan to use modern cloth nappies so won't buy a special nappy bin.

    As far as animal poo goes, we clean up the dog poo by wrapping it in newspaper layers first, then put that in the plastic bag from the kitchen bin once it's nearly full & then it goes straight into wheelie bin to be emptied

    I had one and used it way more then I thought I would. But a car freshner thing in the bottom before you put the bin liner and it never smells. You can buy them second hand pretty cheap.
