AHHHHHHHHH first non ebf poop :)

What is the best way to deal with non solid baby poop once they start solids?
There wasn't really anything that I could knock off.

Is her poop no longer water soluble? She is still 90% bf.

I dont have an issue of sticking my hand in the toilet but it just seems wrong to dunk my precious fluff in the toilet

step 1. go to the dollar store.
step 2. buy a scraper.
step 3. keep scraper in toilet brush container next to potty.
step 4. scrape poo off with said scraper.

Re: AHHHHHHHHH first non ebf poop :)

I'm with you on wanting to keep baby's diapers out of the toilet. Just seems icky to me. Flushable liners are perfect for this stage, I used them around the time of day he usually pooped. I also bought some microfleece from Joann's and cut up a bunch of liners to use in case of any surprises--they were cheap enough that I didn't mind if some were a lost cause and tossed. Remember this stage is not long at all; once my ds started to eat more often/more variety the poops became plopable.

Poops become magically plopable with fleece liners.

You will have to dunk them at some point! And yeah, that first bite of anything other than breastmilk....changes everything.

If you are concerned about staining, get a diaper sprayer and spray off everything, it really makes getting through that stage much much easier.

and yes.

I am right where you are, just starting to give him a taste of this and that. Fleece liners are making it much more bearable.

Scrap and wash. You'd be surprised what washes out.

Re: AHHHHHHHHH first non ebf poop :)

Dunking is gross to me too (I've been doing out of necessity since DH hasn't installed our sprayer since we moved, but it's nasty). I have a sprayed I got for $25 shipped off eBay. It's awesome and you don't have to dunk.

Fleece liners don't work very well for us because poop seems to go just outside of them so then I have to deal with the liner AND poop on the diaper. Also, to me it defeats the purpose of using natural fibers if I'm just going to cover it with a synthetic but that's just my . My vote is sprayer and then sun any staining that's left.

So true. I'm on baby 3 with cloth. Well number three is not on solids yet. With the first two though I never dunked in the toilet and I don't have a sprayer. I use a little toilet paper to get any obvious chunks the rest comes out on the wash. It really is amazing what the washing machine can take care of. It can't to grape skins though.
