Dear Diaper Sprayer

Lucy & Zach’s new found enjoyment of solids bought about something else new in our household: baby poo that runs the gamete from pb-like to adult-like poo. {Non-parents, sorry for the TMI. Parents, you’re nodding along right?}

Thankfully, I was fairly prepared for this change thanks to other cloth diapering Mommy friends suggesting a diaper sprayer. Lucy & Zach gave it to me for Christmas {how sweet, right?} & my Dad was able to easily install it in our guest bath.

So now, upon arriving home from daycare, I open our wetbags & see what type of presents Z & L gave for me through the day. If they’ve refused solids, it’s more breastmilk poo & can go straight in the washer. If they’ve loved their {insert fruit/veggie combo}, J & I will RPS to see who uses the BumGenius diaper sprayer.

Our sprayer is very easy to use, but it does take a little technique to avoid spraying poo water all over your bathroom. After getting my bathroom very clean a few times, I have the technique down & really appreciate the diaper sprayer. We keep a wet bag in the bathroom for easy transporting. It’s an extra step but hasn’t stopped us from continuing to use cloth diapers on Lucy & Zach during the day at daycare & over the weekends.

I’ve heard you can make your own diaper sprayer piecing together parts from your local hardware store. But life with two means I don’t have time for that! Especially since it was so easy to shop online & have it arrive with fluff mail!

    So glad to hear you figured this out earlier than we did! Jax is almost 5 and we just got a sprayer after Inaras 1st birthday. We never thought we needed it and are even more appreciative of the luxury of it now. Lol.

    I’ve been reading lots of cloth diaper blogs getting ready for the new little one and just pinned a tutorial for a DIY diaper sprayer. I haven’t looked at it too thoroughly but if I can’t figure it out, I’ll definitely be buying one! We only use cloth diapers with my daughter at night so poop hasn’t been much of an issue for us to this point.

      I’ve had multiple friends successfully make their own. I just knew we didn’t have the time of the DIY skills for that!
      And go y’all for just cloth diapering over night. We end up doing disposibles overnight. I was concerned about night leaking so went to use the disposibles we’d been given in the beginning. Now it’s just our “system” to switch them to disposibles at night. Oh & Lucy’s a sometimes overnight pooper too! 😛

      I end up doing cloth diaper laundry nightly because I don’t want to let poop diapers {even once they’ve been rinsed off} sit overnight. Does the odor spray allow for every other day or so washing?!
