Cloth Diaper Accessories: The Must-Have List

There are many cloth diaper accessories on the market. Some are more helpful than others while some are, in my opinion, a must-have. You can cloth diaper on the cheap without many of these amazing products but I personally love these 6 must have cloth diaper accessories because they make my life just a tad bit easier.

 

  • Diaper Sprayers
  • Spray Pal.
  • Smart Bottoms Wet Bags.
  • Fleece Liners.
  • Fresh Wave packs
  • Snappis

 

Diaper Sprayer

Cloth diapers are fun and all…. until the baby has peanut butter poop. Poop that just won’t plop off and is no longer exclusivly breastmilk poop needs a little something extra. For this- I love my diaper sprayer. There are many diaper sprayers on the market to choose from but we decided to go the DIY route and made a sprayer from the materials found at our local hardware store. It was pretty easy and it cost us about the half the price. (I would, however, purchase one next time.)

Spray Pal

I have done quite a few Spray Pal reviews in the past three years- because really, I have no idea if I’d still be cloth diapering without it. Spraying off the poop is a cloth diaper reality. Afterall, the first question people usually ask is, “What do you do with the poop?” For some people, this means dunk & swish. For others, this means having a designated poop scraper. For many, it’s the sprayer attached to the toilet. The sprayer can be a little messy so the Spray Pal saves my bathroom time after time.

 

Smart Bottoms Wet Bags

Smart Bottoms wet bags are truly my favorite of all the wet bags I’ve owned. They’re heavy duty and trap in the stinkiest of stinky diapers while we’re out and about. They’re the perfect size to use for a few hours out of the house or all day. I even use them for swim suits in the summer time!

 

Fleece Liners

Where have these been all my life?! I loathe stained diapers. It’s weird- I know. But I just am not a fan. But I’m also kind of lazy and don’t want to put in all the work of sunning my diapers either. Fleece liners are basically my best friends. I put these in all my natural fiber diapers (since those stain easier) and the poop is *mostly* contained on them. No poop on the diapers themselves means no stains on them! Score! Plus- They make it super easy to spray off of diapers that have flaps that don’t stay in place. Double score!!! 😉

 

Fresh Wave

Diapers stink. It doesn’t matter if you use disposable diapers or cloth diapers. They just stink. Fresh Wave odor eliminators remove the stink naturally. Instead of just covering the odor up, they get rid of it! It makes the room smell fresh. I use them in the bathroom and in the baby’s room. I also use the little packs between the cloth diaper pail and the liner and in the trash can between the can and the bag.

 

Snappi

I don’t use prefolds and covers very often- but when I do, I love my Snappis! They’re so much more convenient than trying to use diaper pins. But let me warn you- these suckers do hurt if you step on them…. Worse than a Lego. Prefolds with a Snappi and cover was my favorite option when Jackson was a newborn- as you can see tiny newborn chicken legs above. 😉

Spray Pal Review

spraypal1

If you’re a cloth diapering mama, chances are you’ve heard of Spray Pal. If not… man are you missing out! When we started cloth diapering, the biggest thing I was afraid of was poop. Poop is a big thing with cloth diapering because you actually have to deal with it. I knew right away that we would be getting a diaper sprayer for our main bathroom and using it always. This just became one of my favorite cloth diapering accessory!

Spray Pal was created by a mom and dad team when they realized how much poopy toilet water splashed all over their bathroom when spraying diapers off. They are a small business working in their home (and garage!) and also made in the USA. Put all that together, and that is one of the best kinds of companies to support, if you ask me!! 🙂

Now onto my review…. This thing is AMAZING. Could I be over exaggerating? No. I hate poop. It used to make me gag. Being a mom of two toddlers, I deal with a lot of poop. And this made my job just a tad bit easier. Here you can see me wearing a toddler (because sometimes we need held after a good poop, I guess?) and spraying down a diaper. No mess. No fuss. Just getting the dirty job done without getting dirty! 🙂

Spray Pal is also super easy to clean. I wipe it down every other day or so with a Clorox wipe really quick just to keep the germs at bay. You can unclip the snaps to squeeze out the extra water that built up in the diaper. I honestly haven’t done that because I just kinda roll the diaper because its easier for me to throw in my wet bag all rolled up. I also like to keep mine ready at all times for action since poopy diapers can happen up to three times a day! I don’t have time to really set up my equipment, so that works for me. I keep it on a towel that I switch out once a week on the floor next to the toilet. It took some getting used to for the kids to not mess with it. But once I told them it had “poopy yuckies” on it, that was it. No more wanting to touch the poopy yuckies! LOL 🙂

Overall, this is an awesome tool to have for any cloth diapering family. I honestly wouldn’t recommend living without it. Is that extreme? Maybe. But for retailing at only $25.00, you can still easily save money while cloth diapering. This is a family owned, small business, made in the USA so it’s a business I think everyone should support. Spray Pal also has some adorable t-shirts for toddlers that have the #makeclothmainstream hashtag. Its super cute and Bai wears it often!! Check out Spray Pal’s website HERE and be sure to like them on Facebook HERE. 🙂
