I love the idea of cloth diapers and using them on dd BUT I am tired of the poop. It makes me sick to have to clean it everytime and then have to scrap it off the washer when it didnt all come off. I have tried to rinse it in the bathtub but that is even more gross. DD has really soft/liquid poop and so its not like I can just "shake" it off. I am ready to quit and go back to disposables. HELP!

Get thyself a mini-shower and rejoice! Seriously, it's one of the BEST diapering inventions EVER. You just attach it to your toilet closes to your changing table. Then, you spray off the diapers before putting them in the dry diaper pail. It sits there until you do the wash. It's so so so EASY. Soemtimes you can get them for cheaper in a co-op, but seriously it's the BEST investment for long term diaper use!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I know it can be tough. I would get really tired of the poo, too, if I didn't have a mini-shower!

I thought about buying one but by the time it got here I would have quit...seriously I live in Germany right now and im not sure it wouldnt even work on these toliets they are odd. Also dd has been showing real signs of toilet training so im hoping we get there sooner then later. I just hate the smell and having to touch it. IF we get pg in afew months and shes still in diapers im quiting. There is no way I can do this while pg I have a really sensitive stomach. Is there some way to make her poo less soft?

I used to just keep rubber gloves by the toilet and rinse the diaper right in a clean toilet. It worked really well for us. Good luck.

Do you have access to microfleece? You can cut some micro strips to go inside of the diapers and they should make the poo easier to plop off. Also, you could get some flushable liners like <a href="http://store.kidbean.com/0705807.html" target="_blank">these</a>. That would make the poo really easy to get rid of.

"have to scrap it off the washer when it didnt all come off"<br><br>
So your washer isn't cleaning it all every time?<br><br>
I'd look into that, first off. We have a washer that's at least ten years old, probably 15 or more, and it's in our rented apartment, so it's been used and abused by countless people. And even though it's starting to break down (I have to do another spin to get out enough water), it's never had a problem where there was poop still in it.<br><br>
We don't use the minisprayer (though we have one) and at most would use toilet paper to get off the bulk of liquidy poops (though he normally, now, has nice solid easy poops), but when he was little we didn't even do that. And we've never had that sort of problem.<br><br>
Perhaps it would all be a bit better if you addressed the washer issue so that wasn't happening anymore?

Bananas! This solved our peanut-butter-poop issue. DD has a banana every day and presto! Her poops are now ploppable.

Dd is still EBF'd, so there's no "plopping" here.<br>
Do you mean that you get a poop-colored ring around your washer?<br>
I discovered that if I do the cold rinse using a smaller load size (lower water level) then change it to the full load setting for the wash, I don't get a ring!<br>
HTH!<br><br>
ETA: I will store the dancing banana idea in the back of my brain for future reference!

Bless you for keeping at it this long! At what age did you start with her? In your description of her poop, I assumed she was EBF -- maybe less than a year old. But then I read your siggy when you spoke of potty training.<br><br>
I'm just wondering -- does your ped think it's okay for her poops to still be so liquid at this stage? Please don't think I'm an alarmist -- but there are some very fixable issues that can cause loose stools. For example, gluten-intolerance (body can't process wheat). I know of this one -- because I have it. Just something to consider.
