Hi - we've been using washable nappies successfully, but I'm worried that the "flushable" liners someone suggested to us are not. We've previously had a huge plumber bill when non-baby flushable wipes clogged our pipes, and I don't want to repeat the mistake.
We have "tot bots" cellulose liners, and the fact that I can wash them without them falling apart makes me suspicious.
Are there any that are genuinely flushable? What do other people do to catch poo in the washable nappies?
There are no flushable ones unfortunately. Try using fleece- it works really well. You need a micro fleece, the ikea cheap blankets work well cut into the tight size. Then you can just flick (gross! ) poo into the toilet as it doesn't really stick to the fleece . They also keep the skin dry as they wick any wetness away. Then just wash them with the nappies.
I'm not sure but I've always tossed poo in the toilet from disposable nappies simply because I've never found a diaper pail that actually contains poo smells well enough. It's not that bad-- you get used to it. So the fleece method suggested by user1234567 shouldn't be too unpleasant, really.
We use the pop in flushable liners (8months now) and have never had any problems with the plumbing. Has anyone tried them are they actually not decomposing at all? Should I be changing our poo catching method?
I use little lamb nappies and the fleecy washable liners that come with them. The poo peels off really easily into the toilet leaving just a residue on the liner. It does depend on the age of child though, pre-weaning poo doesn't peel off anything! I use to just put it all through the washing machine.
Well that's what I was thinking, I've seen what flushed baby wipes do and have been happily using these thinking they basically dissolve with little impact on the environment. Will be switching to this fleece idea I think.
