    Default Nappy disposal bins

    Hoping to hear the experiences of others with nappy disposal bins? Are they worth having? Should I get one that puts a twist in the bag between each nappy? Or are the all-in-together ones ok? Do they really stop the smell? What brand does everyone recommend?

    I had two tommee tippee's and I guess they were ok (put a peg on your nose if you've got a poopy one in there and you put another in!) but I couldn't justify the cost of the replacement liner things and stopped using it. My GF bought it and still uses it years later.

    I've said this before, but I love love love my nappy bin!!! Really handy coz I can keep one hand on bub at all times (she was a wriggly one) and if its a messy affair, i keep dropping dirty wipes in after the nappy until I'm done. Plus I don't hafta make multiple trips outside to the big bins. Works great for me when it comes to keeping smells at bay

    I have the tommee tippee sangenic one, I stock up on 4 pack of liners when on sale for like $30-$40 (on sale at toys r us next week for $30) and they last ages. I tend to only do a twist after a poopie nappy, and after every 3-4 pee nappies, saves on using up too much plastic

    I never had one with the first 4 bubs - plastic grocery bags always worked perfectly fine for me...and helped to keep my cupboards from overflowing with them

    I use plastic shopping bags as well. The nappies that are just wet don't smell bad so I just put them in the bin and empty daily. Dirty nappies I get rid of straight away. Works well

    I had a tommee tippee and yep the pooey nappies did smell, and by the time I had filled it and emptied it the bottom nappies were mouldy
    Mine was a gift and I got a few replacement cartridges that I used but didnt replace them, plastic shopping bags or those little nappy bag are much cheaper and Id rather get rid of dirty nappies straight away.

    I have a bin that you just put normal bin bags into. We use nappy bags for the stinky nappies, and then just pop them in. Much cheaper. The smell is still there, but not so overpowering.

    Encasing a nappy that already takes sooo many years to break down, into a plastic coccoon adds hundreds of years to the breaking down process.

    Just not worth it imo.
