Everything You Need To Know About Diaper Disposal

No matter whether you’re at home or on the road, you’ll be throwing the diaper in the trash, but it’s important that you follow the proper steps, first. Here are some effective and eco-friendly pointers to dispose off your baby’s soiled diapers.

  • If possible, be sure to first dump any feces from the diaper into a toilet. As obvious as it is, it helps reduce odour and bacteria growth, and just makes it easier to dispose it off without making a mess.
  • Try to wrap the used diaper up as tightly as possible to reduce risk of spillage. You can use the sticky tape sections to help keep it wrapped up.
  • Carry along a supply of old newspapers if you’re out so you can discreetly get rid of dirty diapers. Don’t forget to dump any solid matter from the diaper into a toilet first, and wrap the diaper tightly in it  before you throw it away. PS. You can use baking soda in your home trash bin to curb the odour and help keep them smelling fresh.
  • If you're travelling in remote areas with little or no civilization around, you'll have to carry the soiled diapers with you… possibly for the whole trip, until you can find a suitable garbage can or trash receptacle. DO NOT throw away disposable diapers in the wilderness as they will pollute the environment.
  • If you’re on a plane, disposing of a diaper may seem like a tedious task. However, it’s still pretty easy if you know how to do it. You can use the airsick bag to store the diaper. However, please be aware that the FDA prohibits airline staff to handle soiled diapers when they’re serving food, so you may have to wait, or dispose it yourself.

Now that you’re aware of the various ways of correctly disposing of diapers… there’s one thing to always keep in mind. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after handling a used diaper. Your sanitary habits are of key importance when you’re dealing with a baby. After all, his or her immune system is not as strong as yours and it’s best to take extra care for the wellbeing of your beloved child.
