me and minkis again...

Postby megansmummy » Tue Feb 02, 2010 1:56 pm

:roll: sorry!

right so i have two slinki minkis on their way and a standard minki on loan from Steph... When K wears a WNNN i dont boost it at all and it easily lasts him the night so he isnt that much of a heavy wetter...so could someone help me out with how much i should stuff the minkis with?

Would a 50x50 bamboo terry, PD bamboo and EP hemp be enough do you think? I have seen some 75cmx75cm bamboo terries on babykind? do you think they would be better or too much?

Thanks!

That sounds like loads to me. I used to use a trifold hemp square wrapped in a microfibre cloth. :)

I use a 50cm bamboo terry and two ep hemps and that does us fine - Grace is not a super heavy wetter at night but even on her wetter nights it has yet to leak...

trifold hemp squares are pretty absorbent though... I'm not sure I'd trust that for Grace though...

Yes I would think that would be fine...

Last night I used two 50cm bamboo terries (I have to fold one edge in slightly and then trifold the bamboo terry) with one EP hemp and that also worked very well...

BTW I find you can't stuff as much into the slinkis...

No a large standard joeli...there is an amazing amount of growing room in it though :giggle: But the fit around his thighs is sooo much better than the large WNNN...i think I need to save my 2 WNNN's for when he is walking and has slimmed down a little...

Looking forward to trying the fit of the slinki too...
