    Default MCNs and toddler poop

    If the title wasn't obvious, this is a thread about poop, so be warned

    So DS is 21 months and we've been using MCNs the whole time, but are finding the poops kind of a pain in the butt to clean. It was fine when his diet was all/mostly milk and it would just rinse straight off, but these days it's chunky enough that it needs to go in the toilet but it's so squishy that it's really hard to get off the nappy. Definitely can't just shake it off into the loo or anything. I have a "poop scraper tool" but that's not particularly easy to use either.

    So what does everyone else do?
    He's still breastfed, would that be contributing to the squishiness?

    What kind do you use? Can you get genuinely flushable ones? (As opposed to ones that claim to be flushable but then clog the sewers…)
    We tried some when he was little but couldn't get them to stay in place in the nappy to actually catch anything :-/

    Yep, liners. I made some by cutting up polar fleece (from spotlight) to size, no sewing required as it doesn't fray.

    Default MCNs and toddler poop

    You can buy disposable ones (not flushable- I put them straight into a bag then bin) from woollies 100 for $3. They can also go through the wash if you get them in by accident.

    Or you can buy flushable biodegradable ones from eBay or cloth nappy outlets. I usually use these but sometimes run out.

    Or you can use reusable ones made from micro fleece- once again a heap are on eBay.

    The "flushable" ones seem genuine- if they accident go through the wash they pull apart and mostly dissolve

    Eta: dd still has squishy poos at 3- especially if she sits in them!
    And yes sometimes the liners are hard to keep in place so sometime "miss"

    Micro polar fleece. Buy from spotlight, cut to size, no need to hem as it doesn't fray. Easier to rinse & wash with nappies, it's similar to the stay dry liking on a lot of MCN's.
    There is an attachment you can buy for your toilet from Bunnings - it a hose (like in Asian toilets), but you use it to rinse the nappies. Internet search for "little squirt".
    As far as I know none of the "flushable" liners are actually flushable so we steer clear of them.
    I hear you on the toddler poop! Is TT an option? DD is 20 months & has started telling me when she needs to poop so we've been getting quite a few in the pot.

    Little squirt; spray poop off into toilet and keep nappy bucket close by to chuck straight in
    Also comes in handy for poop accidents in knickers / jocks

    Flushable liners are not to go in the toilet. They do not break down properly.

    I find the disposable ones hold moisture and cause rashes.
