What is so hard to understand about washing poopy cloth diapers?

Posted by   + Show Post

What do you do when your potty training child poops in their underwear? Some probably throw them away, but I bet most people toss the poop in the toilet and wash the underwear. What the HELL is the difference?!?!


Or vomit on clothes??? You rinse what you can off and then toss it in the washer.

UGH yeah, I can't imagine that.

When my daughter was a toddler, before we found out what the hell was wrong in her diet, she would have 14+ mucusy diarrhea diapers a day, landing her in the ER for severe dehydration several times because at that point she would refuse all liquids and liquidy foods.  8 years is way different than a toddler though.  Yikes. :(

Liquidy runny poops from a 8 yr old 6-8 timesa day sucks the most. Lol I've done younger kids too.


Quoting PEEK05:

Poop sucks regardless lol.

Dunno. I cloth diaper my 8 yr old. Those poops are loads of fun.

I've been cloth diapering for a while.  My diapers come out bright white! The colors on the outside stay just as vibrant too.  Maybe you were not washing them correctly.

Huh their gross?? Not to mention highly unsanitary. It smells, stains won't come out. I've used cloth diapers and disposable is the only way to go.

My child only pooped in his underwear three times before he was potty trained. Guarantee that I will only have to wash poop out of those diapers three times and I'll look further into it.

Unless they explode lol!  Oh man, I remember taking my son's diaper off and then it would just slide up his back.  I had to be armed with a wipe so as soon as that sucker was off, there was a wipe already there lol.

I didn't cloth diaper, but my mom did. She said she dumped the poop in the toilet, then tossed the diapers in a bucket of bleach water she kept for that purpose, when she had enough for a load, she washed them. Never had any stains. When potty training mine, I dumped the poop in the toilet, rinsed the undies in the tub, then washed them in the washer. (And cleaned the tub..obviously lol) After my kids stopped having accidents, I bought them more new undies.

I had them both trained in a week....even overnights! I bribed the hell outta them! One mnm for trying...two for pee...three for poop. And I didn't use pull ups! Maybe a handful of pee accidents total! I couldn't believe it. Now....that may have been easy..but getting rid of bottles and the ha (paci ...that sucked big hairy donkey balls

I lucked out and never had a poop accident while potty training the twins. That said...I'd certainly just dump and wash





Twins and no poop accidents? Amazing! I'm slightly jealous lol

He has been to numerous doctors. His diet is cut drastically. Before we cut a lot of culprits he was going 14 times a day at least but he's healthy as can be..gaining weight and everything. I don't know what else to do.

Yes I know how to wash clothes correctly, probably been doing that longer than you've been breathing. In other words I'm over the hill. Disposables are the way to go.
