Review: bumGenius Diaper Sprayer

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.


  1. doesn't spraying with all the extra water take some of the "green" out of using cloth diapers? then again, still not filling up landfills, but... oh this is so tough! i'm due in 7 weeks and unable (due to no laundry facility) to try cloth diapers, but i'm hoping some of the "eco friendly biodegradable" disposables i've bought will work well until we move in another 3 months...laundry machine with a baby is a MUST!!

  2. I find that sometimes you need to in order to keep the diapers in good condition. (Depending on the consistency of the poop) This isn't really a concern for newborn poop but more for babies who are eating solids -- and toddlers, too.
