I like the squishyness of the banana, and the either, cold or warm feeling, but after about 2 hours it gets smelly, I mean not as bad as a real mess. But it does, and it's easier than a normal mess to clean up. I've only messed once before, and it was worse smelling, of course, and worse to clean up. I'm currently trying the instant oatmeal method, and it feels more like a real mess, not very squishy/slimy, but more firm, and I guess in a good way, doesn't really try to escape the diapee. I'm going to see if the cleanup is less smell, and even easier to clean than the bananas, with the added bonus, of possibly being able to be in the diapee longer. I have a feeling the sugar in bananas is what makes them go bad so fast, so I feel the oatmeal will definitely last longer, having no additives as such. But it's a better method to "mess" than the real thing in my situation, and I like to enjoy it longer!
What method do you like best if you simulate a mess? If you do so?
