Diapering on vacation

I'm planning to CD while at my mom's over the holidays. No biggie. We've done it before. Problem is, my Mom doesn't exactly have a sprayer and I'm a little dependent upon mine. DDs BMs are not the sort that shake off. What would you ladies do?

Put it in the toilet and swish around. Dunk. If she has a good toilet, flushing it while keeping the diaper in the toilet helps a lot. I know some people have to go as far as using a cheap plastic spatchula to help scrape it off into the toilet. Gloves help if it's really messy. It doesn't happen often but every now and then I have to do this with Aiden's. You can do it! It'll be a grand poop adventure! Wink

We just rinse if it doesn't all come off. I just use the laundry tub and clean it afterwards. We don't have a sprayer at all here.

I just use toilet paper to get as much off as possible and sometimes dunk. You could use liners too.

Liners are the BEST. I have a ton I can bring to school for you tomorrow if you want, and if Teagan will be there. Let me know! Smile

Oooh, could you, Leigh? That would be so awesome. I was trying to figure out how I was going to get a hold of liners by Friday morning.

No problem! Will bring em over when I go pick her up in a bit.

Hey, how did this all work out for you, by the way?

Oh yeah. I should update about that huh? CDing on vacation went great. First, Teagan went on a cleanse so her BMs were back to NB consistency. The liners made for a terrible mess more than anything so I just swished. Then she turned into a chow hound so her BMs just rolled right off. We used those inserts that abacaxi suggested while driving to CA and while flying and they were AWESOME!

That's great--I'm glad it worked out! Yeah, I can imagine liners + NB poop would not be great. They are best for that awful sticky in between stuff.

Teagan, a chow hound? Huzzah! Is it sticking?

Hehe. No. Lasted 5 days.

Dude, with how easy our sprayer is to install and uninstall, we take it with! Our (Asian) bathrooms here in Laos all have sprayers in them- meant for adults you know- so we have an extra that we aren't using. Will definitely be taking it back to the States with us to install at my dad's!

Glad it went so well for you though! We use liners (and the right size ones now), but between DD's diapers being loose enough for the liners to shift a little and her poops being pure disgusting most of the time, liners still don't catch everything. We could NOT live without our sprayer.
