Minki Nappies are available in a choice of size
newborn Minki will fit babies weighing between
5lb and 10lb ..it is really tiny and cute and needs a micro padding.
It would make a great pressie for a new 'clothie' mum.
The small Minki will fit
babies weighing between 9lb and 15lb ...it is very adjustable at
the waist with about 4" of adjustment on the Velcro fastening.
The elasticated legs ensure a good fit on fat or skinny legs!
The medium Minki will fit
babies between 14lb and 20lb, it is the same highly adjustable design
but with a slightly smaller rise than the large Minki.
The large Minki will fit
babies weighing between 18lb and 40lb.
Because it is a pocket that you pad out the nappy will
grow with the child as you can add absorbancy as
required. The Velcro fastening gives a good fit on the most active
toddler and the elastication on the legs reduces nasty leaks even
once the baby is toddling.
The extra large Minki is a special
order nappy for babies/toddlers 40lb plus. Works well as an overnight
nappy for the child who is still bedwetting as I can make it in
a fabric that is not too babyish. For the older child who ‘power
wees’ and leaks from the sides of nappies ..a layer of terry
can be added beneath the fleece which acts as a diffuser layer and
helps to prevent this problem occurring .Would also be suitable
for special needs children (or even adults) and can be made to measure.
Minki. This nappy (pictured left) was a made-to-order
for a special needs child who needed an extremely stretchy waistband,
which needed to be soft and flexible. By first talking with the
childs mum about personal requirements I removed the Aplix and added
extra elastication and used toggles to provide a fastening that
was unrestrictive and a nappy that wasn't too 'babyish' for this
Do you have special requirements ?
Minki Nappies are available in a choice of fit
The Standard nappy is generously cut ..wide in the bottom and quite
high in the rise….The close is a wrapover aplix close that
gives masses of adjustment and a good secure fastening.
The Slinki nappy is cut slimmer in the bottom area is lower in the
rise and has an edge to edge aplix close as opposed to the wrapover
close of the standard nappy.
Whatever your preference ..be it the ‘Big Bummed Fairy Baby
look’ or the neater trimmer look …rest assured there
is a Minki Nappy to suit !
