Bought this nappy bin just before baby was born. Admittedly, before I weaned him, the nappy bin kept odours at bay, but now that he is nearly 11 months and on a varied, solid diet and is producing some really stinky nappies, the bin just isn't man enough to keep the odours in. For a start, when you put a new nappy in, it lets out the odour of the nappies already in there and makes the room smell. Much better off going for a nappy disposal system like the Tommee Tippee sangenic plusTommee Tippee Sangenic Hygiene Plus Starter Pack, which indiviually wraps and seals each nappy when you put it in, which we have now switched to. It got to the stage with the angelcare one, that we would go to put Felix down for his nap, and the room would smell of dirty nappies, which is not pleasant for him. Very disappointed, but I guess you get what you pay for. In my opinion, it is much more worthwhile spending a bit more money on a better product.
