This post may be gross and graphic if you don’t yet have a baby! Just a warning! 🙂
We use cloth diapers. And before you start with solid foods, dirty diapers aren’t that big of a deal. Breastmilk poop is sort of watery and cleans off without effort.
Once your baby starts eating solids, it’s sticky and thick and doesn’t just wash right off, at least not easily.
When Alexander was a baby, we used some diaper liners, but honestly, ours always shifted, so half the diaper was still really dirty.
We got a diaper sprayer, but every time I used it, little drops of water would get all over me and the bathroom. Dirty water drops, on my face. No thank you. So I got rid of it.
After those two attempts at cleaning dirties, I just resorted to grabbing a big wad of toilet paper and physically scraping off whatever I could, into the toilet. It was really gross but mostly effective.
Fast forward to about 8 months ago, before Annabelle was born. I was asking my Instagram followers about how many cloth diapers I would need if I had a newborn and an older kid in diapers (FYI Alexander is out of diapers now, so I only had two in diapers for a very short time!). Among the many answers I got, I got several recommendations for the Spray Pal. It’s a diaper spray SHIELD. So many people tagged the company, someone reached out to me and asked if I wanted a shield and sprayer, for the purpose of review. Of course I said yes.
Now that Annabelle is 6 months old, and she is eating solids (like actually eating), I am using the Spray Pal once more. It is so crazy convenient. Once you get the hang of setting it up, it really saves time, and it’s far less messy than the other things I’ve tried. I mean, cloth diapering means you’re going to get your hands dirty here and there, so I’m used to it. This product just makes the whole process a lot less dirty!
If you want to get your own Spray Pal, you can get it HERE. You’ll see there’s also an option to get the sprayer from the same company.
NOTE: In a few days, I’m giving away ONE Spray Pal in a giveaway!
Here’s a video I made showing how we use the Spray Pal:
