Hi ladies. I'm Cris. I have a 2 year old boy and a baby on the way sometime this month. We use cloth at home - homemade pockets and fleece covers for the new baby, over prefolds.
So, I've been contemplating a diaper sprayer lately but I was wondering, are they worth it? Do you find you get dirty water flying all over the place? I have this vision of poop water all over me, the toilet, walls, floor...
Any input is greatly apreciated

We bought a sprayer from Home Depot meant for sink installation. It works really well and can be cheaper than the name brand diaper sprayers. Ours wound up costing about as much as a diaper sprayer because the installation onto our older toilet plumbing (circa 1979) required a little retro-fitting. I think that ours has a stronger spray than others but I might be wrong (since I've only ever used mine ). Spraying takes a little practice. Yes, you'll get poop flying around the first few times but you'll figure it pretty quickly. Some people claim that spraying makes the swell worse because it soaks the diaper but I've not experienced that. I would always wring the diaper out before putting it into the wet bag.

Some people find it easier to use a spatula or to swish the diaper in the toilet. I think it depends on the kid. My DD had the awful peanut-buttery poop for months and months and months because she didn't really take to solid food until she was about 18 months. I've known other moms who were able to just roll off their child's poop into the toilet as soon as the child started solids.

Personally, if you're BFing, I'd wait until baby starts solids to see what you'll need. EBF'd baby poop is completely water soluble and requires no removal from the diaper.

It's worth it to me because it really gets the diapers CLEAN. It does take finesse though, before you learn how to angle it, you do get poop water all over.

I love my sprayer. I found this video before I started using it, luckily. Definitely kept me from spraying poop water everywhere.
