I was born and raised in Australia, so I know the flies all to well! (However in western Canada we don't have that problem lol)

Im using microfiber inserts from Kawaii, with their waterproof covers. I don't need a branded "nappy bin" do I? I can just use any bin that has a lid?

No, of course not, We used a kitchen trash can.

RE flies, I just remembered when reading this thread we had a TERRIBLE fly problem last year, no idea why, but they were only in the kitchen we never saw them near the diapers! We determined it had something to do with the proximity of the trash bin to the door, or something.

We have screens on all the windows and what not, but I know they are not as common everywhere, so even if the windows are open no bugs. It's just opening and closing doors that lets them in.

We use a small kitchen trash can from Target with a pail liner made of PUL. The can has a loose-fitting flip up lid, but we moved the whole can into the cabinet in one side of the changing table once my LO got big enough that she wouldn't leave it alone, and we use it without the lid. The cabinet has a safety latch on it so that keeps her out now. If you have a good wash routine, you shouldn't get ammonia build-up and there should not be much of a smell. BF poo isn't terribly stinky and once they are on solids you are spraying it into the toilet or something like that.

Ahhh I want fly screens on my windows! Hate the little buggers...

This is what our nappy bin looks like - brand doesn't matter at all As long as it works. Our lid snaps on but can be left sort of just on the top if you're in a hurry and it's fine too

I just use an Applecheeks Size 2 Wetbag for storing dirty diapers. It is a hanging bag. It holds a whole day or more worth of diapers. I've only noticed smell once when I left it for almost 2 days. That was my own fault.

I will be using a wet pail but thats because I plan on hand washing/doing a prewash in that pail.

I read somewhere that a lot of people didn't like the wet pail because they are heavy. I imagine if you have a front loading washer, you can't just throw them in there either.

Some of the bags used to carry cloth diapers can function as wet bags though. I personally feel they wouldn't get big enough to be extremely heavy. Thats just me though. It seems to all be preference.

I use a large wetbag. Holds a day and a half worth of nappies for our house but I have two in nappies so if you only have one would probably hold at least 3 days if you wanted to wait that long between washes. xx

Thanks everyone! I got one yesterday (believe it or not) from the dollar store!! I got a smaller size so it wouldn't get to heavy, but I didn't think about using the wetbag I have too!

Now I just need her dresser ... it never ends!

That's good! I use some random green bucket my FIL gave me but don't bother with a lid. Mine sits in the bath so once there are enough nappies, I do a couple of hot hand rinses then I lug the bucket off to the washing machine.
