2) Transitional poop
The consistency of the poop will change when your baby starts eating solid food, and it is no longer water-soluble. Now you will need to remove the poop from the diaper before putting it in the pail liner. It is not as bad as it might sound 🙂
Here are some tricks to make it a little easier to handle:
At first it is a good idea to finish changing your baby first. The diaper can wait! So clean your baby and do everything that you would normally do and the take care of the diaper while your baby is ready to wait in a safe place.
There are some different types of thin liners that you can choose to put on top – next to baby’s skin, to make it easier to remove the poop from the diaper.
- A fleece liner is good to catch the poo, and it easily comes off as well, because the fleece liner is made from non-absorbing material (polyester). It is easy to take the fleece liner out and simply hold it down in the toilet while flushing. After all poo is gone (stains are OK), simply store it in the pail liner until washing.
- A liner of paper has the same shape and function as the fleece liner, but you just throw it out in the bin when there is poo. A paper liner is made from natural materials such as bamboo or rice, and they are biodegradable.
– A method to use for removing poo from a diaper when you are not using fleece liners is to simply hold the insert, or the whole diaper down in the toilet and flush to rinse the diaper. All poo needs to come off, but stains are OK. You can also use some toilet paper to wipe off the poo or you can use the shower head to rinse the diaper, if it is close to your toilet.
