Re: Diaper sprayers

Not really an answer to your question but here is my take on diaper sprayers, after reading a gazillion reviews on every kind of diaper sprayer i couldnt justify the cost and hassle of getting one (nevermind i couldnt find one specific brand that had mostly positive reviews) so i got a .45 cent plastic spatula at walmart and i use that to scrape most off the diaper into the toilet then i rinse the spatula and put it in a ziplock bag way out of reach so my kids dont think its a toy lol, i also have my peri bottle from giving birth next to the toilet if i need a little extra to help get anything really smushed off and so far it is working really well and i dont see the need for a diaper sprayer.

Our toilet is close enough to the shower to use our removable hand held shower head as a sprayer.

Re: Diaper sprayers

I cannot say this enough, I LOVE MY DIAPER SPRAYER! I know many who do just fine without them but I think they are perfect for spraying off the stickies and getting the dipe wet so the rest washes out easily...and your hands stay clean! Just curious, did you use plumbers tape to make sure you had a good connection to the toilet? It's the same white tape you use when attaching a shower head.

Re: Diaper sprayers

Don't know about any plumbers tape so I don't think so. Just tried to follow the directions. I have a sprayer in my shower but it does not easily reach the toilet. Sorry for the tmi but at this point it is mostly bfp so i have just been spraying in the tub, then just letting h2o run and then spraying with bathroom cleaner but as we add more "real" solids, this won't be an option.

So then place a bucket in there and spray into the bucket. Then empty the bucket into the toilet and flush when you're done. May take a flush or two, but then you wouldn't have to attach a sprayer.

Re: Diaper sprayers

I have the bumgenius diaper sprayer. I've had it since I had my DD 4 years ago and it still works really well. Currently using it with DS who is 4 months old.

Brilliant...3rd in cloth and this never occurred to me . I use our shower sprayer but it doesn't quite reach the toilet. Buying a bucket tomorrow.
