Give me the low-down on solids-poo, please!
 
Okay--my son is only 3 months old, but I'm already dreading the day that I can't toss his dipes in the washer :yuck: So, I want to know from mamas who have been there--tell me how it works best for you? I mean, I know about the options (sprayer, scaping into toilet, wet diaper pail, etc), but I want to know the routine--like how do you do it? For example, I thought of putting our changing table in or near the bathroom, but I don't have room for that--and I don't know of anywhere near the bathroom I can move the changing station. So, what is your experience--how do you make those diapers get clean again---and what kind of diapers do you use on the movers/shakers?

Thanks so much!!! :goodvibes:

I use every kind of diaper imaginable - AIOs, pockets, fitteds, and prefolds. I am fortunate in the way my laundry area is set up though. My third bathroom doubles as the laundry room, so I spray off the poop with my minishower and toss it into the diaper pail, and it's all right there next to the washing machine.

It's really not a big deal at all, as long as you spray when the poo is still fresh. if you let it sit, it becomes harder to get it off. :yuck:

Thanks, Sheila :goodvibes:

So does anyone else care to share their routine, too--what room you change diaper, and from there? (Meaning, do you walk the diaper to the bathroom, and then back to the diaper pail, or do you keep the diaper pail someplace else?)

THanks!!!

I take dipe off in the bathroom if there's poo in it. I shake the poopers in the toilet. Most of the time I use flushable biodegradeable liners in side, so this is easy. I lay the soiled dipe aside for a minute while I wash DDs bum in the sink. I don't use wipes at all. She is good in that she doesn't mind being held under the faucet for a minute or too for a good washing. Then she gets toweled off, and we go to her room across the hallway and put on a new dipe. Then I put her in her gated play room while I immediately rinse the dipes. Maybe it grosses some people out, but I do it in the sink, not the toilet. I clean the sink thoroughly with natural cleaner immediately afterwards, so am not concerned about any dirtyness or gross factor. I rinse right in the sink, making sure all remnants of poo are off. Then put the diaper in the "mini" diaper receptable in the bathroom (an old disposable Huggies wipes container) so I can then transfer it into the diaper pail, which is across the hallway in DDs room.
Maybe not super efficient, but it works for me!

I do this too, when I finish rinsing it out I throw it in the wetbag or most of the time straight into the washer to soak. I wash out the sink and counter then spray it down with a bleach mix, wash my hands and consider it clean.

I might get laughed at here...

We keep the diaper pail right next to teh toilet and the sprayer. If the poo is really "mud-like" I will spray their bum off with the diaper sprayer over the toilet & wipe it off with a family wipe. It's still super hot here, so the sprayer water is warm. I usually get a few giggles when they are getting sprayed off...:giggle:

anyway, back to the Original question, I think it is just easier to keep the pail in the bathroom. We have always done it that way. Just pray for a solid pooper! :laugh:

Can't tell you much for the "in between stage", but I'll tell you what I do know.
We started CD in Feb and my ODD was 20 mo. So she was already in the fully formed poo, if you kwim? I didn't have any cloth wipes, so I made my own wipes out of paper towels and water/baby oil. I lay her down on her changing table. I put her paper towels/wipes in the diaper. I lay the dirty one on the floor next to the changing table and put a fresh diaper on her. Send her on her way. Then I take the poopy diaper to the bathroom. I dump the poop and the wipes into the toilet and flush. I'd say 90-95% of the time, I can just dump. (It's a whole piece, LOL). Then I put the diaper in my pail next to the changing table. On the other 5-10%, the more wet ones or ones I didn't really notice and she sat in and it got all squished, YUCK!, I use my diaper sprayer. I got it on ebay for like $19 and free shipping. I don't have to use it often, but it is sooo worth it!
What I don't know about is the "peanut butter poo" when you start solids. My 4 mo. still has EBF poo, and it's so easy.
HTH.
