Both, really. I think putting a fully loaded diaper in the trash is kinda gross and unsanitary but I can understand why you would do it when changing a baby in public (outside of your home or resort room).

I have never, nor do I know anyone that has ever, shook poo out of a disposable diaper into the toilet. That is news to me. I'm not sure I will start doing that either.

Yeah I've never heard of that for disposables either. Ever.

Take a look at the "directions" (ha! they still crack my up after 6+ years!) on the diaper box next time you buy a new one. At least on the Pampers boxes, the third (I think?) step shows a diaper being held over a toilet with a little present falling in!

Also, just so you don't think I'm off my rocker . . .
16.
Dump any poop into the toilet, if possible. Fold up the dirty diaper and fasten it closed with its tabs, then put it in the trash or diaper pail. If it's flushable or compostable, dispose of it according to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Sassie Kat, very interesting. I've been a mother for awhile now--LOL--and never knew that. We buy Target brand diapers--no instructions on the box!!! I've never in my life done that. Interesting.

That's just fine when you're in a residential or hotel bathroom. Not exactly practical in the parks. You're changing the baby on a table. Then what? Go to the back of the line of all the ladies waiting for a stall while holding a poopy diaper as well as a baby and assorted bags? Yeah, that would be popular. The only logical thing is to fold up the diaper and drop it in the nearest receptacle. I know I would really, really prefer that you not stand right behind me holding a 'ripe one' while you waited for your turn in a stall.

When it's easy and the poop was hard enough that it would fall off of the disposable, I dumped it into the nearest toilet and flushed. If there was a line, or if the poop was not hard, I didn't bother, but really that is a rare occurance.

Keeps the diaper trash from smelling nasty, too. I rarely threw a poop diaper in the trash at home either, if we were using disposables for some reason. The poop is so gross smelling. Entire house smells better if the poop goes in the toilet!

This! It's really not that hard to shake a poop into a toilet. I always did it, even when using disposables. The first family I ever babysat for taught me that - they said putting solid poop in the diaper bin would stink up the bathroom, so just shake it into the toilet, then throw the (disposable!) diaper away.

Plus, I don't know about other people's babies, but mine produced many more wet diapers than they did poopy ones, so it wasn't like it was a huge concern. Maybe once or twice a day? And, of course, it's a total non-issue if you're still breastfeeding exclusively.

I used disposables for all three of my kids and the only time I didn't do the shake before throwing away was when my babies were still exclusively breastfed. Once they started eating and their poos became solid, it got shaken into the toilet.
I've never ever seen anyone do that. Never knew people did it either. If you do so, great. But I don't think you are "supposed" to do so.

I never knew about it either. I always put my kids poopy diapers outside. They never stayed in the house.

Could be a regional thing.

I know around here (Eastern Ontario), you are definitely supposed to. You're also supposed to flush your dog poop (the city requests it since their facilities aren't set up to process human or animal waste), but based on the many little baggies filling up public cans no one actually listens to that particular advice.

Flushing baby poo, on the other hand, actually seems to have stuck, maybe because it makes sense to people in a way that flushing dog poo doesn't. They enforce it at daycares, drop ins, and I was taught to do it as a babysitter. Just good manners, really. No one wants to deal with a lot of poop in the garbage. Especially not in your own home. It's worse than rotten fish, and you can't exactly stick it in your freezer, either. Nor would your neighbours thank you if you put it outside next to their driveway.

And when my kiddos were two, it was useful when we started toilet training. "Where does the poo go? In the toilet!" It was natural to go from shaking it in from the diaper, to going on a training seat and tipping it in, to actually sitting on the toilet and going.

You are supposed to, because otherwise you are introducing unprocessed biohazards into the 'trash' route, which is actually illegal. Don't worry, I don't think the po-po is going to chase you down But I am mindful of the fact that human waste should be processed appropriately with either cloth or disposable diapers.
