Now weaning is established, LOs poo is no longer runny enough just to go straight in the wash, but it's still no where near solid enough to just drop into the loo! Plus, as he's having finger foods, there's often lumps of stuff still in it What do you do in this in-between stage? I had a go at scraping the worst off with a handful of toilet roll into the loo which the OH refuses to do! I don't really like flushable liners as they keep his bum wet and scrunch up. Any ideas?
So far we are just chucking it all in the machine still....but we're BLW so it's still pretty runny. However he's starting to actually swallow a lot more food so I'm thinking we may need to change this soon....urgh. I'm thinking fleece liners may be the way to go.
Yeh the worst was carrot - came out as it went in!! We are using fleece liners in the nappies that don't have a stay-dry layer but the poo doesn't come off any easier, even when held under the toilet flush. It's a scraping job everytime, yuk!
We use Little lamb premium viscose flushable liners. They are stay dry and lovely and wide/long so they don't scrunch up like most others do. My LO hates feeling wet, and let's us all know about it if she does, since we've been using this brand she hasn't complained once. OOh and they are so SO soft
You're not the first one to start a thread about this. A reassuring fact is that it doesn't last long, soon it will be peeling straight off the liner. We actually keep a car windscreen scraper just for the purpose of scraping off any tricky poos as it gets more off that toilet paper can. Then you can always try soaking the liners in a wet bucket. Washing machines can cope admirably well, but be prepared for some squeeky clean broccoli florets coming out with your clean nappies
We're at the same stage. I use loo roll to get the worse off. You could use a shower head over the bath (into a bucket if you like) - set it on the most powerful jets and that should clean it off ok. Another option is to try leaving the fleece liners in a separate bucket with the poo still on. The poo may dry out a bit and be easier to shake off.
Mmm lovely...a bucketful of poopy fleece waiting to dry oh the things we do as mothers!! I might try the showerhead into bucket trick, and save them up to do once an evening. Thanks for all the suggestions x
I have a diaper sprayer attached to the toilet. I know they aren't common in the UK, but they spray the sticky weaning poo in mere seconds! That's also the stage my 8.5 month old is in. I talked to a mum who said her hubby just connected a kitchen sink sprayer to the water hose which supplies the toilet with clean water. Costs very little and super simple to install for a handy hubby.
