CDing is going great, I'm still loving it after a little over 3 months. And the baby is starting to get ready for solids (still waiting for a few milestones yet). But that got me wondering...
Currently I use CPF and just plop them in the diaper pail nothing else. When starting solids do I need to start getting as much poop off as I can? I wash every other day. Also, I'm trying to make some fitted diapers, any difference in washing them? Was leaning towards lining them with suedecloth.
Yep, mini shower, I don't know what we'd do without it. My dd is formula fed so her poop has been stinky and staining all along. We have a diaper pail beside the toilet and we hose them off and plunk them in there. We wash every 2-3 days and we have NO issues with smell.
The minishower.. that's what I was going to say too!! I highly, highly recommend the investment Well worth every penny, IMO In fact, I was just begging DH to bring it on vacation with us, I'm so reliant on it.. LoL!!
The only problem I have had is that my DD's isn't exactly solid all of the time. Sometimes I get the smeared diapers. Suede cloth and Microfleece do help but you might still have to dunk and swish if you don't get a minishower of somekind. The other option is if your in the market for a new shower head and your shower is close enough to the toilet is to use the shower head over the toilet to rinse it off. (That's what my sister does.)
I just keep a bucket with a tight fitting lid beside the change table and shake the solid into it.
Then I just dump the bucket into the toilet. I put the diaper in the dry pale like I always have. I haven't had any problems with this method.
No minishower here. We use a combo of "methods"-- I have some rice paper liners which my husband uses, and also a spatuala (dediacated to that purpose only of course). Usually it just rolls right off, though. I have kept a dry pail without any problems to date (9 mths, 3 mths of solids).
We have a minishower, DS has those "peanut butter" poops about half the time, no amount of shaking would get rid of those. I've heard that the spatula/scraper thing will get a lot of it off, though, the rest will come off in the wash.
I use a pail liner in my pail so I don't have to wash out the pail every time.
DS has peanut butter poops with chunks of solids in it, so we can't just shake it off our FBs yet. I bought a sprayer from Walmart - it looks like the sprayer on your kitchen sink but it has a really long hose and attaches to your shower head. It was about $15. I use that to spray off the poopies and just drop the dipe into my dry pail. My pail is a Happy Tushies bag that hangs on the door knob, I just carry it into the bathroom whenever I need to spray off some poop.
