First off let me say while a diaper sprayer isn't essential, it is absolutely a time saver and major proponent in making our cloth diaper journey easier. Rinsing poop off into the toilet vs the alternative; shake and hope it falls off or scrapping it off with a tissue or scraper, for me the diaper sprayer wins every time. Spray Pals diaper sprayer is great and very easy to install in the video below I show you how simple the install can be.
It really makes cloth diapering easier and gets used several times a day in my home, we also use it to rinse Naeem's (our 19 month old) butt when he's on the toilet. The pressure is really easy control unlike some other diaper sprayers I have had.
The Spray Pal Shield isn't exactly my go to on the other hand. In theory its great, however in reality it isn't a win for me and the reason being is the shape when you sit it in the toilet you have to hold it up and if you don't it falls down. So if I am rinsing a poopy diaper, my son is also on his potty and ready to run at any moment. Which means I end up dropping the diaper shield in the toilet in pursuit of an all to eager to escape toddler. I suppose he thinks it's game, but I digress. I would love to see the design changed to make it a little easier to manage, considering managing on one thing at a time with both hands isn't always feasible or optimal in the way of efficiency. Being that it works we use it and longingly hope for SprayPal shield 2.0 that caters a little more to ease of use.
