I've taken a bucket with me when we've travelled or a large wet nappy bag. Both have been fine for a few days away.

Never travelled with cloth as Dj is only 6 weeks. Im sure it's just as easy to use as dispis. Take your bucket along if you have room and wash them when you get home if it's a short break your going on.

Dont feel bad about using dispis tho if you think it'll be easier away :D

I have been out on weekends and used cloth and never had a problem. I use the wet bag( I carry two) the large one to put used nappies and the other one to take with changing bag when you are out and about.
I do show of the nappies too so always take the best ones. however to make it less smelly for the host I do put them in the nappy sack each> I know not eco friendly but you don't want to put off the host. but if you are going to stay at a B&B I suppose there is no problem.

For short trips (e.g. a friend's wedding where we stayed in a hotel) I just took a HUGE wet bag...

For longer trips we've only gone places with washing machines so far so we've just taken normal kit with us to be honest...

I think if we went abroad or stayed somewhere without washing facilities for a week we'd probably have to resort to eco-disps if we could find one she didn't react to!

I have a huge Swaddlebees wet bag which will hold at least 4 days worth of nappies and so for short breaks will just bring them home to wash. Longer holidays I will use cloth as long as we have good washing facilities otherwise we will use disps.
