Kawaii diapers make up a good part of my diapering system; I use the covers and overnight diapers regularly. Next month I’m going to do a comparison of the newborn diapers (Little Green Baby and Pure & Natural), but today is all about MINKY. Kawaii sent Ingrid a beautiful Snazzy Minky pocket diaper to try out, and they are also going to sponsor a giveaway!
Here’s the Silky Pink Flower print we received:
Here are the basic features of the Kawaii Snazzy Minky diaper:
- One-size pocket diaper which fits from 8 to 36 lbs.
- Adjustable snapping rise offers three sizes: small, medium and large
- Hip snaps on the waist to prevent sagging
- Waterproof strip of material on the inside top of the waistband for extra leak protection
- Waterproof minky 2-layer outer shell with a white microfleece inner lining
- Includes a pair of 3-layer, large microfiber inserts
- Retail price $7.75
Minky is a poly velour fabric; it feels like silky soft cat fur. 🙂 Minky will take slightly longer to dry compared to a typical synthetic pocket diaper, but not too much. It will also add a tiny bit more bulk, but again, not much. It’s extremely snuggly and cute and feels great on your hand when you’re changing the diaper.
Here’s the diaper opened up. It has a large pocket that’s easy to stuff:
Ingrid is short but chubby and I really like how this diaper fits on her. With just one insert, it’s not bulky at all and is a great day time diaper. With two inserts, because of the plush minky fabric, it’s moderately bulky, but that’s ok with me at night time.
Does minky perform differently than PUL or TPU? For us, it’s worked just as well and has the added bonus of being softer and very unique. It’s also just as easy to clean, especially since the Kawaii minky is low loft.
At 7 months and 15 pounds, Ingrid is wearing this pocket diaper at the smallest setting. This tells me it very likely would not have fit her snugly enough at 8 pounds; I’ve found this to be true with our other Kawaii pocket diapers. They run large and fit best at 10-12 pounds and up.
One of you will win a Kawaii Snazzy Minky pocket diaper in this cute snowman print! What could be more fitting with all the wintry weather we’ve been buried under? The giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents. Good luck! GIVEAWAY CLOSED
