Cloth Diapering

onto day 3 of cd'ing

and so far so good! only one leak, and that was because i didn't change DS' diaper as soon as he woke up. still getting used to the "fluffy butts", we need to go up a size for them in clothes, especially with the pf/cover combo..but no big deal cuz they're getting out of the current size now. 
we do have an issue though with spraying poop -- we have a diaper sprayer, and obviously not a very deep toilet... the water/poop sprays EVERYWHERE when doing it. anyone else have this issue?? we need to do something else. we have a deep sink downstairs next to the washer, but i dont think it's very good to wash the poop off in the sink & down the drain??
so far my my SO & mom are liking cd'ing too, except the diaper sprayer/toilet situation. i've left them in charge a few times since starting & they've handled it quite well... 
we are doing pf's covers during the day - and pockets with a hemp insert & mf insert at night. hope it stays as easy as it seems. 

Thanks for all your help ladies :)

Re: onto day 3 of cd'ing

  • We still have some overspray issues...you do get better with practice.  I don't put my sprayer on full blast and that helps, also try folding the diaper in half (dirty side out) and getting it down further in the toilet bowl to spray.

    Some gals still scrape, swish, or dunk to get poop off.  I find that spraying gets them cleaner (for my DDs poops) though.

    A bumpie and her DH sold a product called "Spray Pal" through hyena cart but I know they are currently out of stock and looking for a new manufacturer.  Try poking around on some CD resale sites and see if there is one available.  It is a clipboard type thing that has 3 sides to help with overspray issues.

  • DD's poop is easy cuz it's ploppable. But DS' poop isn't, it's still very pastey & sticky....so spraying seems to get it off better. 

    i was wondering if there was such a product out there - thank you, i'll search around this afternoon while kids are napping.

    If you can't find a spraypal, I'm thinking that 2 flexible cutting boards and some duct tape plus a big binder clip or "chip clip" could work too.  Make a tube out of the flexible boards, duct tape it on the seams and around the circle, clip diaper inside circle - spray without issues.  This makes a lot more sense if you see a pic of the Spray Pal.

  • I rinse our poopy diapers in the utility sink next to the washer (the washer drains into it anyway) with an old vegetable brush to scrape the bits off.  I'm pretty sure a toilet and the utility sink drain to the same place, at least in our old house they do.

    Also the utility sink it two sided so I'm able to keep the other side clean for other things.
