logistics of poopy diapers
Luckily my dresser is big enough for this.
I have a diaper sprayer and don’t swish. But even then it can get pretty soaked. If I have a prefold I take the cover with me to the bathroom to catch the drips after spraying. Else I have used AIOs and they don’t drip much either. My bathroom is too small for another pail in there and my wet bag is usually in a trash container not very portable,

When I’m changing DD, if there is poop, I just set the diaper on the changing table next to her until she’s in her clean diaper. Then I put her somewhere safe (floor, crib, etc) and take the diaper to the bathroom. If I have time, I spray the diaper off right then. If not,

When laundry day comes, I take the bathroom pail and the bedroom pail and empty them both into the washer. Easy peasy!
^^ Lauren, you can put a hand towel in the bottom of the wet bag to catch run off from a sprayed diaper.
As for my system, I keep a small stack of towels that are about 1/2 the size of hand towels (got em at Lowe’s as lint free cloths for some project around the house, painting? Staining? And I repurposed the still new ones after).
Any diaper is placed on top of the stack of towels on top of the dresser out of baby’s reach. I have a changing pad that I change DS on top of the bed,

After a change,

Then walk the dirty diaper to the bathroom for a spray if poopy. DS likes to watch me spray off poop. He’s 16 months I’m using these opportunities to tell him “poop goes in the potty”. Since I have 1 little towel, I set the sprayed diaper in there carrying it by the corners of the towel to my diaper pail, which lives in my laundry room. The little towel goes into the pail gets washed with the diapers. I dont usually use a little towel to transport pee only diapers. DH is really sensitive to any diaper smell. So, the pail had to leave DS’s room after about 6 months he wasn’t EBF anymore.
All systems are a little different. You’ll find something that works for you.
This is my fool proof system for poop, odor and drips. I keep a clean dishpan in the nursey and the main bathroom. We only usually change diapers in the nursery during the night time or that first morning diaper so I just place the few in it and bring it down when we come down for the day. rinse the diapers if needed and use the pan to transport the diapers to my diaper pail with liner that I keep in the basement way (no kids can get in it, if it’s stinky we don’t smell it, it’s on the way to the laundry) during the day time I just put the pee diapers right in the diaper pail but usethe dish pan to preent dripping poop water from the bathroom to the diaper pail. I’ve tried many different ways and this really has worked best for us.
