Do You Use a Cloth Diaper Sprayer?

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?

  • The sprayer was easy to install (for my husband). I bought the sprayer, and while I did like it for the most part, eventually I succumbed to using a flushable liner. The sprayer still came in handy when the liner would bunch or whatnot, but I think in the end the liners were more useful.
    My main issue with the sprayer was that in order for the spray to be strong enough to get the toughest stuff off, it was so strong that there was a fair amount of splatter. (Ick!) I suppose if you have an apparatus that you can use to shield the splatter, it would be great, but we didn’t. I’m picturing using something like a Home Depot bucket with the bottom cut out, setting it on the toilet bowl, then spraying within. But then you have to clean the bucket…

  • I don’t have a sprayer but after 2 months without it I told my husband to make me one. I was using liners but my plumbing would not agree with it unfortunately :(. I tried dunking but…. well it is just not for me…. Cannot wait to use a sprayer, let’s hope my husband will get to it sooooon…. Let’s hope for that! :)

  • I seriously do not know what we would do without our diaper sprayer!!!

  • My daughter is on a daily dose of Miralax, so we rarely (if ever) have the ‘flick, roll, pop’ kind of diapers! Both my husband and I find the diaper sprayer to be a huge help. Mind you, we still have to get more involved on occasion, but for the most part, the sprayer gets the job done. Our diaper pail is in the bathroom, so moving the wet diaper is not much of an issue. And as for smell, it never crossed my mind that there would be a difference :)

  • We’re lucky that we have a half bath in our laundry room. We keep the diaper pail wedged in between the toilet and the washing machine, so we have no worries about post-sprayer drip! We love the diaper sprayer!
