Ok, so you all know this has been my biggest hesitation with the cloth diapers. Well the inevitable finally happened this morning :-(
So I went to get Brock out of bed and just by how bad he smelled when I picked him up, I knew it was going to be a poopy diaper. Well, I proceeded to change him and started cussing Spike out (in my head of course) because he still hasn't hooked up the diaper sprayer to the toilette
I was just hoping and praying that the poop was going to be more solid than sticky/messy...Well it ended up being 1/2 & 1/2... So I put the diaper to the side, threw a new diaper on Brock, set him in his crib and went to the bathroom. I was able to shake off the clump of poop right into the toilette but wasn't able to really to anything with the sticky stuff. So I tried to scrape it off with toilette paper and that wasn't working at all! So now I'm mad and have no idea what to do. LOL.
So I grabbed all the dirty diapers, and the new ones that I got in the mail yesterday and started the washer. While I was in the laundry room I realized that I could just use the water from the washer as it was filling up to help remove the left over poop. I did just that and it worked wonders! I checked the cycle and the poopy diaper after the pre-wash cycle and it was CLEAN!
Needless to say, I'm going to have Spike install that sprayer as soon as he wakes up so I can be prepared for the next diaper. I'm also going to move the diaper pail into the bathroom so I don't have to walk around with a wet diaper.
Overall, the experience wasn't that fun, but I think I can handle it if I am properly equipped! LOL. So hopefully the next go-round is better.
