Fortnightly bin collections can cause a major stink for parents of babies. A baby may be the smallest member of the family, but their disposable nappies can make up a whopping 50% of household waste and with health professionals recommending that newborn babies are changed 10-12 times a day, and older babies around 6 times, it is no wonder that half of a families’ bin is made up of smelly nappies!

Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment has been tried and trusted by parents and health professionals for generations – even since the good ‘ol days when the dustman would collect the bin from your garden and bid you “Good Morning!”. So to help beat the two-week lingering wreak, Metanium have this advice for modern day parents:

1. Wherever possible, flush baby’s poo down the loo before binning the nappy.

2. Keep the stench under wraps by using nappy bags and expel the air out of the bag before you tie it.

3. A nappy wrapper unit can tackle smells and save endless trips to the bin by hygienically storing up to 28 nappies. Try Tommee Tippee Sangenic Unit (RRP £29.99) available from Mothercare, Boots & Argos.

4. Eco Mum, need not mean ‘Geeky Mum’; kit your baby out in the latest ‘real nappies’. They come in different colours to match baby’s outfits and by popping poos down the loo and drying on the line you can beat the summer stench hands down!

5. A baby will need around 5,000 nappies from birth to potty training. So for parents concerned about the environment but too time-poor to consider real nappies, choose eco-friendly disposable nappies. They don’t use nasty bleaching chemicals and biodegrade quicker than regular disposables. Try Moltex un-bleached disposable nappies from The Natural Baby Company (priced for £8.99 RRP for 52 nappies).

6. No matter what type of nappy you choose or how often you change you baby, there are times when babies are prone to nappy rash e.g. when they are teething, weaning or feeling poorly. Whatever the cause, you will want your baby’s sore and sometimes painful nappy rash to clear up quickly.

Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment soothes, heals and protects and only a thin layer is needed to protect your baby’s delicate skin. A handy size 30g tube of Metanium costs £3.49 and is available from chemists and supermarkets nationwide. Visit for more information and a money off coupon.
