This is a very useful bit of kit, especially at the early stages of your babys life. The quantity of wet and solid nappies and the amount of nappy changes on a daily/weekly basis is staggering. What happenned to the good old fashion ways of throwing the used nappy on the floor out the way, or in a small open top bin next to the nappy changing station. These old fashing ways means that your babys room/house would stink of nappies. Your nose would be use to the smell, any friends visiting would quickly exit the house and make up a story that they have to attend to the cat, or they have left food on the stove. The smell of dirty nappies is not by far very appealing.
As the hours go by the human waste inside the nappy that you threw onto the floow starts to rot, un wanted flys it attracts, then before you know it, the nappy has started to leak onto the floor. The dark winter nights kicks in, your baby has soiled his/her nappy, you refuse to go outside to put the nappy in the bin, so you put it into the bin in the babys room. Come morning, the babys room stinks because you left the dirty nappy in an open top bin.
The disposal syystems in todays markets are relativly good value for money. Although they look cheep to make, they appear to have been manufactured from a plastic mould. They come in different sizes, colours, shapes and sizes. The most common brands on the market today is the tommee tippee sangenic nappy dispenser and the angel care products, both which have distinct features. The refil cartridges seem to be the most expensive part to this product, although sometimes is best to wait at certain supermarket chains until they have offers on.
The tommee tippee dispenser comes in two sizes, midi and maxi. Maxi product is quite tall and holds in excessive of 50 nappies (pending nappy size). We have used this for testing and find that its a sturdy product. The lid is a very clean finish and fits well. When you open the lid you will see the cassette just sitting in its place. The compartment that the cassette sits in is rotatable, so that when wet or solid nappies enters into the product at the top, you simply rotate which locks away any bad smells. We tested this on size 3 nappies, both very dirty and wet. With the lid closed we could not smell any of the dirty nappies. Its only when you open the lid to pop the nappies in, you can smell the dirty nappies.
The midi version of this product is similar to the maxi, the only different being is the quantity of nappies that it with holds in the product. One thing that I have noticed with the midi, is that the way the lid is held on by two plastic buttons at eather side. This doesnt really seem to be very secure.

Some of the negatives that people have found when using the nappy disposal bin
From each cartridge, you should be able to get out about 4 - 5 bin changes. If you leave the bin until the nappies reach the top and can no longer take any more, then we would estimate that you should change the bin once a week. From newborn/premature, we would expect you to change the bin once every 3 - 4 days. A cartridge should last you approx. 1 month. As time progresses as your baby gets older, the less frequent nappy changes would mean that you may get much more than 1 month from each cartridge. A Set of three cartridges would cost approx. £14.99, which should last you approx 3 months.
