Poop smell after she pees?

Okay, something strange is going on. Oh I"m planning on doing a soak tonight with the dirty diapers, so hopefully that will help.

When DD (21 months) pees her diapers smell like poop. Not ammonia, like I would think if build up was happening they would smell like. When they come out of the washer they smell clean! Any idea of why this is?

The only thing that has changed is I'm washing Gideons diapers with hers, and she is getting more breast milk. Thoughts?

Ok. That is an odd one. In my experience, if I ever get poop smell, I can smell it coming out of the washer or out of the dryer. In that case I can remedy it by using a little more detergent.

I have recently switched up my wash routine a little. If there are nasty, stinky diapers to be washed then I do a WARM rinse first. Then my regular hot wash with detergent and extra cold rinse. The warm rinse does a better job of getting stink out.

Vanessa, I came here with the same question hoping for some answers. My diapers smell fresh and clean when they come out of the wash and dryer but after she pees they smell like poo. Yuck! I might try a warm rinse before doing the hot wash tonight and see if that helps. Also, I have set some of mine out in the sun today in hopes that would help deodorize them. I'll let you know how it goes. :)
