Nappy disposal systems


Hi girls, I wanted to get a nappy bin for in the nursery to keep bad smells at bay, and I was just looking as the asda baby event has the tommy tippee one for £8 which seems really good.... but it says it only stores 28 nappies at a time which doesnt seem like many at all.... is this all the cassetts take? as the cassetts are a few pound each so if they only take 28 then I can see them becoming quite expensive, thanks girls xx

ive got the tommee tippee one, there is loads on the actually casette but its just that the bin its self is quite smallish, so you just have to empty it every time its full they remind me abit of bin bags.

just double checked on the cassettes, there is definately ALOT more than 28! there looks at least 150 on it, it says each cassette to last upto 1month now if you think about changing a nappy 8times a day, 7days a week that should be approx...224 and it doesnt look far off, hope that helps x

i had a look at the size of the bin it does look like it could fit around 28 nappies in but to be honest u would probs empty it every day or other day, you just snap the bag like you do with bin bags when you wanna empty it...seems pretty straight forward

yeah I would wanna empty it quite often.... I was just a bit stupid at first and thought you just had to empty it when the cassetts ran out.... I did think it was a bit gross the thought of leaving the nappies in there for a month until the cassett ran out lol. I suppose I had never really thought about it before to think of the practicalitys!

Wouldn't bother, just use nappy bags and put straight out in bin. They're one of those things new mums buy but never use x

I'll probably be eating my words in a couple of months, but I can see it coming in very handy at night-time. Especially as I'm hoping to breastfeed so don't have any other reason to be going downstairs.

I got the tommee tippee sangenic bin down to £4 at the end of the asda baby event - at first I thought no way would I use such a useless thing but when LO wakes 3 or 4 times during the night and then you get those night time poo/pee leaks then it certainly helps! It holds plenty and keeps smells well, I would only use it for wakes in the night upstairs, empty it every few days. A good buy and I will use it again!

Why not put the nappy in a nappy bag and throw that in a pedal bin or something similar in the room where baby is changed? Then you can just empty out the bin when full. Just thinking out loud!
