If you don't have a sprayer to clean the poopy cloth diapers you can soak the poopy cloth diapers in a bucket of water and soap.

Then if you have a hose outside you can use the outside hose to clean the poopy cloth diapers with.

Or if you have a shower wand that you can remove you can use the shower to spray off the cloth diapers that are poopy.

Or simply run the poopy cloth diapers under your shower head.

To deal with poop in cloth diapers you should first scrape out as much poop as you can from the cloth diaper.

Then soak the cloth diaper in a bucket of water and soap and then spray off as much poop as you can.

Then wash the cloth diapers as normal in the washing machine.

Cloth diapers can lead to and cause UTI in girls and sometimes boys as well.

However if you change the cloth diaper as often as it should be changed and wipe the baby up properly and at every diaper change the baby or toddler should not get a UTI from the cloth diaper alone.

Even in disposable diapers babies and toddlers can get UTI or urinary tract infections if not changed properly and often enough.

With cloth diapers the urine is still sitting against the child's skin and wearing a cloth diaper with pee is just about like sitting in a wet towel or wet underwear.

Disposable absorb the pee and hold it away from the skin which makes disposable diapers actually healthier for babies and toddlers to wear.

Cloth diapers do not make babies bow legged.

Babies are actually bow legged already because of the babies legs being folded in the mothers womb.

Diapers whether cloth diapers or disposable diapers do not make the babies legs bow legged so it's okay to use cloth diapers.

However cloth diapers that are too thick may actually make the babies legs spread out so that it's harder for the baby to walk when they begin walking.

So cloth diapers could hinder the babies development when walking and make it harder for them to walk.

Thinner disposable diapers however can make it easier for the baby to walk in than cloth diapers because they are not as thick.

Diapers introduce bulk between the babies legs, potentially exacerbating infants' poor balance and wide stance.

It's been shown that walking is adversely affected by old-fashioned cloth diapers, and that even modern disposable diapers habitually worn by most infants incur a cost relative to walking naked.

There's no way to prevent your baby from getting bowed legs.

But you may be able to prevent certain conditions that are known to cause bowed legs.

To prevent rickets, make sure your child is getting enough vitamin D and calcium in their diet.

Some of the disadvantages of using cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers include.

They require washing.

A newborn may require up to 12 diapers a day, and toddlers need around six to eight diapers a day.

They can be inconvenient.

These require large upfront capital because the initial investment for cloth diapers is much more than disposables.
