Getting Poop Off Diapers

Newborn Poo: If your baby is exclusively breastfed, you can put those diapers right in the washing machine.

Solids: When your baby starts solids and you start seeing thicker poo with maybe some chunks in it, that stuff needs to be cleaned off the diaper before it goes in the wash.  You have a few options.

Liners: In your diaper assembly line, add a flushable liner like this one from Buttons.  You can even use Viva paper towels (read about them here and here.)

Sprayers: There are dedicated diaper sprayers and bidet sprayers, but you can also MacGyver a sprayer from a kitchen sprayer and some spare parts.
