Any advice? Should I just wait this out and start up with cloth once his poops firm up a little? What do you think?
If its not chunky though, you can just toss them in the washer. Its only the chunks that create a problem in the washer.

(just remind yourself - poop is not supposed to go in the garbage - you're supposed to be flushing it before you put the sposie in the garbage. Human waste belongs in a sewer... )
My typical day, his overnight diaper gets changed into a sposie, he poops within an hour of waking, changed into a CD, then maybe again a bit later, afternoon he goes back into a sposie because he usually poops again, then into a CD. I know it's not what I planned but it's what works for me.
Momma to DD (12/04) and DS (11/09) .
I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
I do what some of y'all do, and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one!
I cloth diaper almost full-time, but I will occasionally use of 'sposie under a diaper cover for nighttime, and since my daughter is so regular and poops every morning after her morning feeding, I'll put her in a 'sposie before the morning feeding. After that, we CD all day. So we generally use one 'sposie a day, and the rest is cloth. Works for us. :)
ds's poop is almost always like this. About 90% of the time he poops right after his morning feed, so we sit him on a little potty to do his business. I've been doing this since he was about 4 months. He is 15 months now. It really is a much easier clean up that way. If he doesn't poop on his potty in the morning I'll put a flushable liner in his diaper. Sometimes if I catch him squatting down and grunting I can get him on the potty before he goes, as the liner doesn't always catch everything.
Another vote for flush-able liners or just put the kid on the toilet if he has a consistent poop schedule I cannot imagine attempting to spray off what OP is describing
unless it and easy dump poop for us i just put it in the wash bucket with everything else and into the mchine it goes.. i do a cold rinse first to loosen anything and wash stuff away... wourks like a charm and no swishing
