Asda Little Angels Nappy Sacks
Advantages: Many uses
When our daughter was born in December 2010 we were well stocked up on our nursery supplies. Thoughtful gifts from friends and family added to the mounting stash amongst which were some of these Asda Little Angel nappy sacks.
Packaging and first use
It took a while to get round to using them as some of the more budget buy sacks come in bags of 300 which obviously last a while! The packaging on these really did appeal to me though with cute blue and white dots and when I did use them, I immediately found them to be of better quality than their value versions.
The first thing about these bags are that the packaging comes with a white click lid which enables you to pull out one at a time and store them neatly. I noticed with the other bags they tended to be all over the place and you could never get hold of one at a time. Secondly, the actual bag was much thicker in quality and seemed more sturdy than the thinner bags which do tear easily.
Obviously, quality comes at a price and I have noticed that there are less in a pack (75) which don't last as long but when you double up the cheaper bags you are getting close. I only double up with these when the contents are extremely over the top toxic. Looking back at the other couple of reviews for this product, the price seems to have hiked massively of late. The bags are currently unavailable on Asda's website but the eco version which have the same packaging are £1.75.
Thinking about it...
I can never suss out the sense of an eco nappy bag if you are stuffing it with a landfill destined nappy. Does it make any difference if the bag biodegrades if the nappy inside remains on this earth for a long time? I don't wish to start any debate about disposables vs reusables as that is completely up to each parent to make their mind up about these things.
Back to the bags then. The other nice thing about these being a bit more 'premium' is the pleasant scent on the bag. My husband loves the smell of them and has been known to sniff the bag - before contents go in! - but he does like the smell of most air fresheners. I on the other hand quickly began to associate the smell of the bag with the smell of a used nappy so it just doesn't do it for me.
I find these great for when we are on the go and they are nice and organised in their packet, in the bag. In our nursery we have one of those nappy wrappers so don't really need to use the bags any more but I have used them in the past. Another great use for them is just for storing clothing that has been replaced during the day or dirty bibs before they get to the laundry basket. We usually have a bag ready when we go out for meals to put used baby wipes and other rubbish in to keep it in one place and it's easier to throw away afterwards then. I do hope these continue to be available at ASDA in the future as they are my favourite nappy bags used to date and believe me, I've tried them all!
Summary: An essential for the changing bag
