Only, on our most recent trip I had a new - and disgusting - experience with cloth diapers. That being the plastic swish stick in the toilet approach to washing off the poop. Really, it was disgusting, time-consuming, and I all but had to dig my hands around in the toilet with the inserts to get them rinsed well enough. I've told Squire that if we travel with our cloth diapers again, our Bum Genius Diaper sprayer is a must - otherwise it's disposables for Lincoln's bum.
If you're considering cloth diapers, a diaper sprayer is a must purchase item. It took this trip for me to really understand, but now I know.
Here is our little diaper sprayer pictured below. Squire says it was really easy to install. I will say it is pretty entertaining having the sprayer in our guest bathroom like we do. Everyone who has to use the guest bathroom always questions us about it with caution. Haha. Bidets freak Americans out. If nothing else, the thing is a conversation piece! Perhaps my study abroad in Vienna was more influential on me than I had ever realized? ;)

It's pretty simple to use once it is attached. When the spout is down, the water flow is cut off.

When you pull the spout up, the water flow begins . . .

|Back off - don't forget this important step!|
But even despite that one black mark on my Diaper Sprayer experience, my overarching feelings about my diaper sprayer remain overwhelmingly positive: thank goodness for its beautiful wonderful existence! I'll never cloth diaper without one.
