Do you have in mind that unpleasant mixed yogurt smell is gone bad that will no longer make you eat yogurt with the same eyes for the first years of your child’s life? Here is the “gentle smell” of a dirty diaper thrown in the normal garbage and left at home. To overcome this problem, some new parents use nappy eaters. But exactly what are they and how do they work?
What is a nappy eater and how does it work?
The nappy eaters are containers where dirty disposable nappies are thrown, which are hermetically sealed to prevent the spread of bad smells.
Therefore, nappy eaters are very useful in various cases, as they allow families to store nappies in special containers before separate collection is done or it is possible to take the rubbish into the common bins.
Nappy yes or no?
It depends on the needs and the space. Those who have a room that they can use specifically for changing and changing tables and that can ventilate easily or have the availability to quickly get rid of the used diaper, putting it on a balcony or outdoors, can very well do without it.
However, consider that a newborn every day gets to dirty the diaper 5 or 6 times with pee and at least a couple of poos. There are also babies who discharge after each feed and therefore the change becomes even more frequent.
What types of nappy eaters are there on the market?
There are two types of diaper eaters in particular:
- diaper eater with a single bag
- diaper eater with multiple bags
The first single bag type is usually larger in size and has a piston or valve system to seal the odor.
The second seal the different diapers one by one, avoiding, even more, the dispersion of the odor (but requiring more bags).
When buying a diaper eater, remember to check the prices of the individual refills or if possible use normal bags.
