My ds#2 just started solids (rice cereal and avocado) this week. What's the best way to deal with this pasty poop? I'm using mostly FBs and some prefolds with Bumpy or Bummis covers.

I didn't have to deal with it with DS#1, since we used a diaper service back then.

Gosh, luckily it didn't last long for us...we went to bm poops, to pasty, and now potty training part time.

DD didn't start solids till about 13 months, and I just used tp to pick off whatever was semi-solid, then I did dunk a few times.

I bought some flushable paper liners once, but decided the expense wasn't worth it, as I'd try to time her poops and stick the liners in.

a gal online I know said she uses a spatula to scrape it off.

What happens if you just bump off whatever is loose and then throw the rest in the washer?

Milo is six months and I tried to introduced him to food a couple of weeks ago and he was not interested. Phew! (A study came out a few mos ago saying that babies who are genetically susceptible (sp?) to type I diabetes, which, being related to me, he is are less likely to get it if introduced to gluten containing grains between six and seven mos. Otherwise I'd like to wait til he's two. )

I was also wondering -- because of my diabetes I am not inclined to give him very dense carb foods, like rice cereal. Does anyone know if when you are feeding them only fruits and veggies if the poo is easier to deal with? I could also imagine it being worse. On the other hand I could probably get him to make some really easy poop with just meat and cheese and no carbs at all there. :LOL But I spose I should put his needs before mine. :

I love my minishower! I've never had one before this baby and don't know how I lived without one before. My girl eats her solids sporadically so has bm poop one time, then peanut butter the next, then the occasional rolls right off kind. The minishower rinses off everything with no problems!

I've had my mini shower sitting in a box for a month now- waiting on DH to hook it up for me. I'd do it myself if I weren't so stinkin' busy!

Anyway, DS still has mostly runny half digested poops. I wipe off what I can and just throw the rest right in the wash. Watch out for grape & bean skins thought

ugh, I don't have a minishower. I'm wondering if I can just do a separate prewash of the poopy dipes before throwing 'em in with the rest?

I don't think that you'd need to! Try it once and see what happens. Just get the chunks off (sorry, TMI?) I had a hard time with this too. I used to wash out the poopies in the toilet using some oxygen bleach and wearing rubber gloves! My toilet was sparkling but my diapers were swampy. Sitting in the pail wet and half poopy until wash day made them actually more stinky.

Ok, I just prewashed 2 poopy diapers (one FB and one PF). I only half-heartedly tried to wipe off the poop with TP before I prewashed them. I'll never tell my husband, there were little chunks of poop left on the inside of the washer tub, even after the spin cycle! I had to reach into the washer tub and wipe 'em off before I threw the rest of the dipes in.

I can't continue to do this... looks like I'll have to go the dunk method or the minishower unless someone has another idea!
