"They can be stuffed with anything you want but hemp…"
They can be stuffed with anything you want but hemp or bamboo works best. Only main downside is the size of the bum, it's ok if you have a girl who just wears a dress. I don't.Read moreLess
"This nappy was used on my little boy every night…"
This nappy was used on my little boy every night and it was fantastic. Never leaked, economical as it fitted him from 9 months to 2 when he was potty trained. saved a fortune not using disposables. definitely invest in one of these even if only for nighttime.Read moreLess
"I love these nappies. They are really funky colours and…"
I love these nappies. They are really funky colours and styles. I've got a great Harry Potter one and another. You can stuff the pockets with anything, to make them more absorbant or more streamlined. The pockets dry quickly, the inserts depend on what you use. They are more reliable and leak free if the insert is nice and flat as they can wrinkle and wick moisture if overstuffed. They seem to last quite well and are beautifully made.Read moreLess
"I have been using a slinki minki for two days…"
I have been using a slinki minki for two days now and I am so impressed with it. It is ideal for people with very wriggly babies. I stuff mine with bamboo terry which is less bulky than a cotton terry, though still gives a big bum. For daytime I put my baby in babylegs or bigger sized trousers rolled up. vest extenders are useful things for fitting a vest over minkis. I think the big bum look is so cute in these nappies that I just don't mind that it is so big -good padding for all those bumps any way. The minki dries in next to no time and so far, no leaks. The biggest plus for me is that the aplix can't scratch bzby's tummy or thighs on minkis like some wraps tend to do. I'll be investing in a few more pairs, i just wish i had used them from the start!Read moreLess

"Great nappies - soft, snuggly and you can add as…"
Great nappies - soft, snuggly and you can add as much boosting as you could ever need.
They are made of 2 layers of thick fleece though, so by the time they are boosted they ARE bulky (even the slinkis) - ideal night nappies. My 4 year old is now in XL minki yoyos for bed.Read moreLess
"This is a "fab funky nappy" with a "handy pocket…"
This is a "fab funky nappy" with a "handy pocket which you can pad out to your level of absorbency" and won praise for reliability, so much so that many reviewers used them "specifically for night times". "The cut and fit are superb" and "they are a nice shape and trim fitting even when massively stuffed for overnight use". "My daughter has never suffered with nappy rash" and "after six months of daily use the nappies still look brand new". They have "fabulous fabrics for showing off". "Sometimes my daughter looks so good, it seems a shame to dress her!"Read moreLess

They're gorgeous & they're my favourite nappy. The designs are great, they're fleecy soft & they've never leaked.Read moreLess
"I have a few Slinki Minki pocket nappies and love…"
I have a few Slinki Minki pocket nappies and love their slim fitting size, and gorgeous design options. I plan to buy some of their slinki yoyos very shortly!
I have never had a leak with these and they remain looking new and feeling soft.
They can be custom made and embroidered, at a very reasonable cost.
Only thing I would change/ask for, is fold over tabs for when they are being washed - very small matter, and Im getting on well without - but with it, I would be giving this nappy 10/10 instead of 9.Read moreLess

Really really gorgeous nappies ..I thought that being so cute they would be a bit all show no performance ...but how wrong could that be . I have never had a leak ..even with some spectacular breastfed emissions . Not the cheapest system but excellent value none the less.Read moreLess

"These really are the best designed nappies on the market…"
These really are the best designed nappies on the market (and I have tried most brands thoroughly). The cut & fit are superb, they never leak and they last forever. Excellent.Read moreLess
"The funkiest nappies around. They look fab and are available…"
The funkiest nappies around. They look fab and are available in a variety of different patterns. They can be stuffed with anything from terry squares to muslins to specially made inserts.
They can be a bit bulky on a small baby, and the hole in the back to put your "stuffing" in is also quite small... but overall they're great nappies!Read moreLess
"Quite bulky once stuffed, and you might need a lot…"
Quite bulky once stuffed, and you might need a lot of stuffing for a heavy wetter! However, very easy to use as they don't require a liner or a separate wrap. Good for childminders or nightime use.Read moreLess
"Very bright and colourful, ideal for showing off at a…"
Very bright and colourful, ideal for showing off at a party or something. They can be stuffed with anything you want but hemp works best. Only downside is the size of the bum, can't fit anything over them, ok if you have a girl who just wears a dress. They are best used at nightime and ideal for an older bedwetter.Read moreLess
"I used Minkis on my older son at night and…"
I used Minkis on my older son at night and have had no problems with them. He even used to ask for them as opposed to disposables (which dp still used). Occasionally he complained that they were uncomfortable, because I stuffed them with terry squares and they did end up pretty big at the front! Buying slinki minkis and stuffing with slimmer inserts would give a more slimline nappy but i don't think it really matters at night. We've never had a leak in them and I love the different patterns.Read moreLess

Great nappy, but I find they come up a little small.Read moreLess
"These nappies can be bulky when stuffed, but are so…"
These nappies can be bulky when stuffed, but are so reliable & gorgeous that it's worth the big-bum look. Since they're made of fleece with a waterproof layer, they don't leak & allow air to reach the baby/toddler's skin. I've stuffed mine with a variety of things & have never had a leak. They also allow lots of room for growth so, although they're not a one-size nappy, they will last a while.Read moreLess
"Although they are easy to put on, being a single…"
Although they are easy to put on, being a single layer (unless you choose the waffle minki) I find them quite awkward to stuff, and not particularly absorbent unless they are so stuffed you can't get any clothes on! They do appear comfortable, and they're fun and funky, so maybe the absence of clothes isn't such a bad thing after all. I like the fact that they do them in a slim fitting (slinki minki) as it fits my slim baby much better than the standard ones.Read moreLess
"beautiful fleecy nappies, lovely patterns. they're a bit chunky, but…"
beautiful fleecy nappies, lovely patterns. they're a bit chunky, but were good for night time, as long as they were stuffed well. couldn't be simpler to use.Read moreLess
"lovely nappies but can be quite bulky when stuffed. sizes…"
lovely nappies but can be quite bulky when stuffed. sizes come up very big in the standard minki. lovely patterns and great for night time useRead moreLess
"Although they seem expensive they are, without a doubt, one…"
Although they seem expensive they are, without a doubt, one of the most reliable cloth nappies that I've tried (and I've tried a few!). Provided you get the stuffing right they will last a 12 hour stretch at night on a toddler. The large size seem to be extremely generous and have lasted from about 8 months and still seem to have plenty of room at 19 months.Read moreLess
