Does anyone know how to use a "diaper duck?" I found one in a catalog but I can't figure out how it works and I don't want to buy it until I know it will work for me.
Thank you.

The diaper duck holds the diaper for you while you dunk it in the toilet so you don't get your hands wet/dirty. Then you can attach it to the toilet and flush the poo away. Then you pull the diaper through it and it wrings some of the water out. I think it works best on prefolds. It seems a bit fiddly to use to me. If you don't want to touch the diaper while dunking, gloves would be easier IMHO. Or skip dunking and get a mini shower. Or just dump and swish! Here are some pictures.

The description says it wrings diapers too. Since I have to wash mine by hand the wringing part leaves my hands raw and I thought the duck might work for me. Thank you for the link. You've been very helpful!!!
