They are bulky but reliable. For a slimmer pocket you would be better off with something like Fuzzis or Wonderoos.

Swaddlebees are really slim cut, but don't suit everyone.

Peapods and Happy Heineys are popular but I've not tried them.

They are fleece inside and out, so it gets bulky Still slimmer than the standard. Looooovely nappies for bedtime though.

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:09:05

how much bulkier than a wambamboo with a wacky wrap are they?

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:13:29

lol sminki in the title

Flame Thu 28-Jun-07 08:14:35

Hmmm... "a bit"

If you want you can order one, see it in the flesh, and if it looks like it will be too bulky just send it back unwashed etc

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:15:21

good idea, thanks flame

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:17:08

£5.40 for ONE wondefulls microterry insert

I loved the Slinki Minkis under a dress for dd. The ordinary Minki's were fab at night.

Have you bought microfibre cloths from Tesco- same thing as the expensive ones but lods cheaper

Flame Thu 28-Jun-07 08:20:47

Been looking at the green acre designs ones and I think they could work well. (The wonderfulls are like two inserts combined, hence the price)

Flame Thu 28-Jun-07 08:21:14

Ooh or do you have any prefolds?

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:24:57

I do have some mio bambineo prefolds actually

TrinityRhino Thu 28-Jun-07 08:25:54
