I am also new to CDing. I take an old plastic pastry spatula (the kind you use to get the left over batter out of the bowl) and scrape it into the toilet. Then I rinse and throw into the pail.<br>
Since I've been doing this it hasnt been as bad as when I was doing what you just described <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Hope that helps!

I use a mini-shower (sprayer like the one in your kitchen that attaches to the toilet)<br><br>
alternately you can use flushable liners.

I use a bit of TP and toss it in the toilet, then rinse in the bathroom sink ( all the solids are already off before I rinse) I would love a minishower, but I can't justify buying one, plus I'm afraid it would leak and cause a flood or something in my house.

I 'dunk and swish' in the toilet. After the majority of it is off the diaper, I spray it down in the tub with my hose shower head on the continuous 'pulse' setting.

I have been known to toss perfectly good prefolds in the trash rather than deal with the mushy poops. I have stopped allowing my DD to eat grapes because of this problem. Fortunately for the most part she went right from milk poops to solid poop, so it's a rare problem for us.<br><br>
When I do clean one, I use a big handful of TP and "wipe" the mess into the toilet like I'd wipe a baby's bottom. Yuck. I wear gloves while I'm doing it, it's so gross. That's why I like fleece liners-- the mess rolls off them so much easier.

I also use the <a href="http://clothdiaperoutlet.com/catalog.php?item=90&catid=59&ret=catalog.php%3Fcategory%3D59" target="_blank">toilet sprayer</a>. It's the best $30 I've ever spent!

I was spraying them off in my shower (after scraping the big chunks off with TP) but I just bought some flushable liners and they are sooooo great. My 17 mo. old has disgusting, stinky, sticky poo THREE TIMES a day.<br>
I never had this problem with my oldest, his poo was much more solid and less stinky as a toddler. I just shook it off into the toilet.

Go to Home Depot (or lows) and get a kitchen sprayer and attach it to your toilets water, and voila, you have a diaper sprayer!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

My husband made for about 10 bucks from Home Depot. Apparently lots of people attach kitchen sprayers to their toilets (and I'm guessing they're not for diapers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) so they should be able to hook you up with all the right parts.

Just a note re: disposable liners, they can clog up older plumbing. We had to get our pipes snaked after we started using them.<br><br>
Cloth liners (cotton, fleece, etc.) are easier to rinse the poop off of in the toilet than dunking a whole diaper, if you're interested in a reusable option.

I scrape the poop with my hand!!,<br>
gross I know but it's my child so I figured why not, it kinda grosses me out sometimes because the poop it's just massive, and then I rinse it in the sink and add a little deterget or baking soda, but im definately going to try with the spatula, hahaa

I use the microfleece liners, which it comes off very easily either with the shower sprayer or sometimes even just the bathroom sink. After spending my whole life cleaning up after animals in one way or another poop doesn't really bother me too much (unless it is another persons baby, in which case I gag).

we live in a very rural area sooooo I dump off what wants to come off in the toilet and then put poppies in a pail and on wash day spray them out at the edge of the woods with the hose..Works GREAT!!
