We bag the poo nappies in a nappy sack then pop them in the wheelie bin. DS's poos are pretty small & flushing them has honestly not crossed my mind...until now.

no, i wasn't. someone else (who i quoted) said "humans can catch human diseases from another humans poo, but a human cannot catch a disease from a dog". i was simply saying that you can catch toxo from a dog's poo.
you can get toxo from another human... if you come in contact with their poo. (from shaking someones hand who has not washed their hands after #2's, then touching your mouth or food)
Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. The parasite infects most genera of warm-blooded animals, including humans, but the primary host is the felid (cat) family. Animals are infected by eating infected meat, by ingestion of feces of a cat that has itself recently been infected, or by transmission from mother to fetus. Cats are the primary source of infection to human hosts, although contact with raw meat, especially pork, is a more significant source of human infections in some countries. Fecal contamination of hands is a significant risk factor.
im in a unit and the bins are far away from our door so it wont bother me. (i will put them in plastic bags too). i also dont see how it is possible to get the poo off the nappies when it would be squished into it.
any way thats enough from me (hope what i wrote does not sound mean or angry or anything)

It honestly never occurred to me to flush poo from nappies o.O I guess it makes sense, less stink hanging around. We've always used biodegradable nappy bags so for the short time that they're in the big bin they don't stink it up.

I would not do it, I only have it at work and if we were made to do this I would quit.

I just bin it all at work. No time to be scrapping faeces into the toilet then bagging. Everyone at work does the same too.

I place the wipes in the nappy and fold the nappy and Velcro it together so it's completely sealed then place it in a nappy bag and tie it then bin it!
The reason I don't use cloth is because I refuse to scoop the poop off

nope, never have, never will. if i wanted to flush poop from nappies in the toilet i would use cloth nappies.

Clothes nappies - flush
Disposables - bin (sometimes flush if it's solid)

Nerdgirl " Since we've been eating solids we flush. It would stink the room out otherwise!"
(Sorry, I forgot to quote!)
I read this so wrongly at first...I assumed by solids, you meant the ones in the nappy! Sure it would be reinforcing toilet training to flush them with bubs looking on!
We flush the solids out of the cloth nappies. Don't use disposables at all. Strangely, the environment is pretty top of the list for me. I couldn't handle the guilt if I just threw everything in the bin.
