tell me about formula poop

i'm currently pregnant with my 4th. All three of my other babies were EBF and i LOVED the newborn ebf poop stage for cleaning cloth diapers. so easy! This little bean will be EFF and i am sooo scared of formula poop!
Maybe this is gross, but can you tell me about formula poop and a newbie? how do you wash it out of diapers. is it really as bad as i'm imagining? TIA!

We almost always used a sprayer but it is pretty much the same. Runny and everything but not yellowish like EBF poop. As long as there are no solid pieces you can still just wash your cloth diapers the same way.

Re: tell me about formula poop

I don't spray them -- we don't have a sprayer.

However, when we combined formula and solids, I put fleece liners in. That poop was hard to get off. But, I imagine it's probably harder for breastmilk + solids poop to come off as well.

No worries on the spraying

your diapers are more likely to stain, poop will not be yellow, but more likely a shade of green, and will be a touch thicker than EBF poop. You could certainly try going without spraying, I generally just emptied into the toilet, what plopped plopped, and what didn't went in the wash.

Re: tell me about formula poop

I do use a sprayer, but my LO has been on formula exclusively for a month and we don't have any stains on our cloth diapers. I use the flip system and haven't had any problems. The only difference I find from ebf poop is that formula poop is quite a bit stinkier!

Our diapers never stained and I didn't get a sprayer until she was about 10months old.

If diapers are staining, I'd check my wash routine and adjust.

Re: tell me about formula poop

I find that it's more of a pasty consistency.
