So there I was changing the stinkiest, stickiest (yes, stickiest) post-chili poopy diaper ever. Cooper, as usual was attempting the alligator death roll. I somehow managed to fold the diaper quickly enough so that he didn't get an ankle or worse, a whole leg covered. I wiped him clean and then put his diaper on while he stood up. I never thought I'd be so good at putting a Duo Fab Fitted and cover on a standing baby. But I've had to adapt. But of course, as is the case with cloth diapers, I still had one more task to do...I had to get the poo off of the diaper and into the toilet. This was no "log" and the old "flick, roll, plop," routine was not going to work. This was going to involve some "peeling, plucking and wiping." While I was dumping the diaper, I suddenly thought of diaper sprayers and how handy one would have come in right then. In case you've never heard of them, diaper sprayers are little hoses with high-power spray nozzles that attach to your toilet pump. They pump clean water from your pipes, through the hose and can be used to spray the solid waste off of cloth diapers and into the toilet--the same job I do with a piece of toilet paper. Apparently, they are quite easy to install and work really well. But then, I wonder, how do you carry the dripping diaper back to your diaper pail? Do the wet diapers smell more or less than dry? These are things I don't know the answers to because I don't have a diaper sprayer. Cooper is my third and final baby and he's already 15 months old. We will not be investing in a diaper sprayer at this point, though I really like the idea and by some of the reviews I've read, some parents swear by them. If you use a diaper sprayer, tell us about it. Was it easy to install? What do you do with the wet diapers--do you leave your diaper pail in the bathroom? Would you recommend a sprayer to your friends considering cloth-diapering their babies?
I didn’t have one with dd but we used liners and thankfully she never had a runny one! We didn’t start CDing her until she was already eating some solids though. When/if we have our next, I will definitely be having dh make us a sprayer for BOTH bathrooms!
We use a sprayer to get big poops off little girl’s diapers, though you have to be careful with the pressure or you will end up with a crazy mess. Thankfully, our nursery has a little half bathroom in it, so it makes clean up pretty easy. I imagine spraying will be easier once she has more solid poops.
I love our sprayer! As others have mentioned I’ve found it comes in handy for more than just diapers. We’re also lucky enough to have room in our bathroom for a diaper pail, so no transporting drippy diapers.
I have a diaper sprayer but haven’t used it yet as we’re still exclusively breastfeeding. I think it will be very handy when we start solids!
This is r last (5) baby and first in cloth. So far we haven’t installed one, but at 9 months old we still get quite a few that won’t just plop either. I think we r going to install one soon.
