Slinki Minkis - What to stuff them with.....

(6 Posts)
caen Thu 30-Jul-09 12:42:12 night? I love these but didn't realsie how big they would be!!! I use LL bamboo nappies at night at the moment with one booster. What should I use for the SM's? I have muslins and lots of LL boosters and some Motherease boosters too. Would I be better off buying a terry prefold?

I used a pre-fold for the SM and then added a few microfibre cloths if needed.
I found the jump in size from the Medium to the Large was huge. I loved the Medium size, it was leak proof. DD was too little for the large size yet too big for the medium.

I bought some bamboo fleece and sewed up some triple-layer inserts... for night time I used two or three plus a microfibre. Bamboo is really absorbent and light so it wasn't too bulky - but the Minki's are huge when they're stuffed!

I found a simple folded terry was enough for nighttime and actually more absorbent than their super soaker pads. I used this day and night, and they also dry much faster.

Only drawback is they are more bulky and skinny DD had to wear 2-3 yr trousers at 12m!

I have a standard minki for Blake. use a mixture of bamboo boosters and hemp.

You could add some hemp to your nappy stash cheaply from easy peasy - 5 hemp boosters for £10 and free delivery. They are fab.
