We had our first dirty diaper after eating solids today. :0( I knew it was coming, but apparently I was in denial!!!! Any tips or trick on how to deal with the new poop? I have a diaper sprayer. It helps. I guess I really just need to suck it up.

The other good news is that the poop should become more solid as time goes on. We had "peanut butter" poop for a while, but now (after 2 months on solids) DD has fairly solid poop.

Yes, definetly use liners.  I also use 1/4 scoop of Oxy Clean with a little soap detergent in every wash load, then 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the rinse water, then a cold final rinse.  No stains or smells in my prefolds!

Flushable nappy liners, absolutely brilliant. Just picked it up and flush it down the toilet. Soon you will start to think that its the newborn poo that was the hardest to deal with. Good luck.

If you just don't want the poo on the diaper at all, try some fleece liners ( you can make 'em just buy some fleece and cut to the size of a panty liner) this way the poo is self contained and can be swished completely in the toilet.

Also, I use baking soda in my diaper pail for two reasons- it helps keep oder at bay and it helps w/stain removal. On my dd's nasty diapers, I'll sprinkle some baking soda right on the poo area and that helps everything out in the wash.

Tip for poo on the go- get some cheap sandwich baggies so you can scoop the poo (think doggie poo bag) and carry w/you if you don't have access to a toilet for dumping. That way you don't have to carry a loaded diaper home and then navigate getting it out of the bag to clean it.

Thanks Kimberly! I am going to look into the Kushies flushable liners for when we are out and about. We use prefolds, but I have pockets and aios. I know I will get use to it. I think I was just shocked over the first dirty diaper!!!! :0)

Are you using prefolds, fitteds, all-in-ones or pockets? In my experience, we had more staining on our prefolds once we started solids (I still get all the stains out, but it's a bit more work) but with our pockets (that have that fleecy inside layer) the pooh tends to "roll" off (kinda like a fruit roll-up.) All-in-ones (all of mine have flannel interiors) are the WORST with solid food poohs. I hardly use mine anymore because the pooh is so hard to get out and it always stains. If I do use my all-in-ones, I definitely throw in a Kushies flushable liner to catch as much pooh as possible.



I don't have a diaper sprayer, but I find that I can still get my diapers clean. It's maybe more work, but we started solids at 5 1/2 months and we're up to 10 1/2 months now! :) I do use a LOT of Biokleen Bac-out. I spray directly onto heavily soiled diapers, mostly prefolds and all-in-ones since the pockets don't really stain at all for me. Then I also add about a 1/4 cup or maybe a 1/2 cup (I fill the bleach reservoir on my front loader) with a little more Bac-out. I swear by the stuff. Then about once every other week or so I also use a 1/2 cup or so of oxygen bleach in the wash cycle and then I run a full extra rinse cycle on hot water to make sure everything is rinsed out. Then of course line drying on sunny days reaps MANY stain and odor-removing rewards. :)



Hope this all helps! You'll get into the swing of the new pooh over the next couple weeks and you'll forget what it was even like before. :D By the way, my son still isn't there yet, but eventually they'll have really solid poohs that'll just fall right out of the diaper! But like I said, my almost 11 month old's is still pretty squishy...
