Standard or slinki minki for nights? what inserts?

Postby angiepangie2809 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 2:54 pm

Well, we are having a real nappy problem here with Ethan. He is power weeing through most of his day nappies, he has been weeing through a disposable at night and now he is weeing through his wnnn's and his baby behind night nappy too. I refuse to buy other specific night nappies at this point as he will be 2 and a half soonish plus I don't think they will be better as wnnn,s and baby behinds were amazing for us up until now. I am cosidering giving nappies by minki a go again but am not sure what size to get as I know the standards come up realy big. Or if I should get standards or slinki's? He is in a large by their weight ranges on the website but he's mega skinny and quite long so am unsure what to do. Also what and how many inserts should I be thinking of stuffing them with? I've ggot pd bamboo, ll bamboo and ep hemp. Is there anytingg else that is more absorbant? Grrrr, I would have just kept him in disposables at night but he's even piddling through them now too. Thanks :-)

I'd use standards. I'd worry about coverage, especially with a heavy wetter in a slinki. And just stuff it with whatever you have available!! And lots of it. Just make sure it's on the right order I.e. Hemp on the bottom etc

I used to use standards with ds1, we only changed as they were too bombproof for us. I think I used to use large threelayer hemp sqaure trifolded wrapped in a microfibre cloth. I can't remember who made the hemp square and I cut it up for smaller boosters. I would have though pd bamboo with a bit of hemp coul be good though.

in the pockets we use now I use one blue pd bamboo, wrapped in a mf cloth with a cotton booster on top, or 2 red pd bamboo wrapped in a mf cloth. ds1 wees on waking so theres alot of wee all at once rather than constant flow all night.
