Adventures in Cloth Diapering, part 3

We've had #2 two times now.
I am searching to figure out the best way to get the poo off the diaper.
I just "shook it out" (it really does kind of peel off) the first time and it worked okay, though some poo was still on it and made me want to vomit when I put it in the washer.
The second time I shook it out and then left it in the toilet for a minute, shook some more, and it was fine with very little residue and I did not almost throw up breakfast when I put it in the washer.
What I think I want is one of the spray toilet things, BUT with the children around, I don't see this as the best option.
I am going to make a trip to Babies-R-Us and see if they have any of the flushable diaper liners and give them a try.
I'll let you know how it turns out.

In other cloth diapering at the Remington's house...Bart is still refusing to try to use a cloth diaper, even though two of them (BumGenius and GroBaby) have velcro closures, just like a disposable diaper! He is the one who got stuck changing (but not discarding) the #2 poop...on his birthday...while I fried chicken and was very tied up and unable to help. He obviously didn't put another cloth diaper on Ethan, but he did have to unsnap it...I think he is just against change and will adjust...right?

Oh, and there are a zillion sites out there about cloth diapers. Here's the link to the blog I read today. I think I will go back to it another day.

2 Words to brighten my day:

Jess don't feel bad. Tim still won't change a #2 diaper. He gags when it's REALLY stinky #2 anyways regardless of what type of diaper she's wearing.

K's very first #2 in a CD was was awful!

It grosses me out way more dunking my beautiful diaper in the toilet, than to toss the poopy diaper in the wash. I'll be reviewing a diaper sprayer pretty soon, waiting on it to get here.

As for the liners... I have a roll of bummis flushable liners. I'm ambivalent about them. They aren't all that flushable, sometimes they clog up the toilet. The problem is that they don't stay put in the diaper, they move around, so half the time there is still poop in the diaper.
