My DD is 7 so we showed it to her and how to work it right after hooking it up - just because we know she is going to mess with it whether we tell her to or not, so I'd rather her know how to use it and know it has to be turned off . She tells me she won't be using it to help with baby brother's diapers though loL!

Re: Diaper Sprayer - Necessity or luxury?

Heck yes! Absolute necessity in this house.......YDD is 18 months old and still has a couple massive peanut butter poops a day.......we wouldn't be without it. With ODD we didn't CD until 14 months and she had plopable poops so it was necessarily a "necessity".....but this time around it definitely is.

Re: Diaper Sprayer - Necessity or luxury?

I would not be cd'ing without it. I have 3 toddlers so I am spraying constantly. (I don't spray newborn poop) I probably spray about 10ish mashed in peanut buttery/toothpaste-like toddler poops/day.
I tried the dunk n swish method but I was too grossed out - dipping my hands in the toilet was just a deal-breaker for me. Plus spraying gets off more than scraping with a spatula and dipping/swishing I think (or at least MUCH faster) so there is generally less poo in the wash as well.

This may be a really stupid question. My DD is 6 months old and we are just getting into solid foods and before this she has had EBF poos so I just threw it all in my wet bag and washed. Never any staining. Is it necessary to either dunk or diaper spray now that her poops are not EBF? Is it still an option to flip the solid ones into the toilet and do nothing with the peanut buttery ones? Sorry....I'm new to all of this.

I would definitely dump any solids into the toilet, and get as much of the other poop off as possible. When a baby is not longer EBF, everything changes. You might be just fine, but it's a gamble - you definitely run the risk of encountering a lot of staining, at least.

I'm on my 4th cloth diapered kid with no sprayer. I have one, but it isn't hooked up.

Using my DS app, please excuse the lack of proofreading.

Re: Diaper Sprayer - Necessity or luxury?

Definitely a luxury not a necessity. I CD'd for 2 yrs w/out one and loved CDing still. Dont get me wrong it definitely makes things easier, but I dunked and swished for 2 yrs and did fine. If I would stuck to my original plan about trying to be as frugal as possible I wouldnt have gotten one but after realizing I had spent almost just as much on one diaper than the sprayer cost I decided to break down and buy one.

Re: Diaper Sprayer - Necessity or luxury?

I say it's inbetween. BUT, I definitely wish I had one from day 1 of CDing. I would never ever go back to not using one and trying to get looser poop off the diaper for 5-10 minutes or more bending over the toilet. 1-2 mins or less of spraying is way better and I think it helps with stains. I have zero stains on my diapers. When I use my cloth while away from home for the weekend, I just pray that the poop is ploppable...because it is not fun to clean the non-sprayer way! lol

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ours. When we go on trips and I don't have one I realize just how nice it is to have it!!!
Got ours off of eBay. Seller seacurrent300 or seacurrent800??? Anyway they are super nice and cheaper than the bg ones and the others I've seen.

My DH made a bucket with a drain for the potty too so I can spray them in the bucket and it washes down the drain which fixes any overspray issue.
It's made like the design of a potty pail. The only expense we were out was the cost of the drain, stopper and chain. It wouldnt win any beauty awards but I think he did great.

Yesterday I would have said luxury. Today it took me 10 minutes to get peanut butter poop off a prefold at my MIL's house. I'm going to see if DH can put one on her toilet for me. I think pockets are easier for this. There was poop on both sides of the prefold so it got on my hand .
