While I've been cloth diapering since my was 2 months old, I was a bit late to jump on the diaper sprayer bandwagon. I would scrape everything off into the toilet, and as my son got older and began eating more solid food, it got pretty gruesome sometimes.
Finally, I tried the bumGenius Diaper Sprayer after over a year of the "scrape it all off" method. Now I can see why people love these things! It's a quick and easy way to get those sticky messes off the diapers.
It was very easy to install. My husband did it and it took only about five minutes. We haven't had any issues with leaks, and we live in a very old home.
My only advice is to test out the water pressure before spraying the diaper. I stupidly did not, and poop sprayed all over the bathroom! That is one mistake I'll never make again!
While I don't think it's necessary to have a diaper sprayer, it certainly makes things easier and a lot faster, too. It's especially great for those who are new at cloth diapering and haven't quite gotten over the "ick" factor yet.
