fuzzibunz. The elites are minky and the inserts and they offer that as an insert buying option but I don't think they are as absorbent as other inserts and prefolds I have.

Tot Bots Easy Fits have minky inners. I found them quite absorbent and so far no stink after 4 months. They are the trimmest diapers we own and air dry faster than my BG shells.

Why would you want then for inserts? I thought the whole minky covers is due to the softness? I'm pretty sure my dd has a Carter's blanket with the minky fabric on one side ??

Re: Pros & cons of "minky" diapers

OP are you talking about minky inserts or diapers? I have a Kawaii minky diaper that I like well enough. The pattern is super cute! It's a bit bulkier than regular PUL diapers, but not too bad.
As far as minky inserts, I love how fast they dry! We line dry everything most of the time and those are nearly dry after I take them out of the wash. FuzziBunz OS Elites and Tots Bots Easy Fits are the only diapers I know of with minky inserts. I like my Tots Bots just fine but I'm not a huge fan of the minky fabric touching DS b/c it isn't stay-dry like micro fleece or suede. But, they do come with a little liner so I just make sure to use that.

Re: Pros & cons of "minky" diapers

Agree with the pp's about the Tots Bots. I have both old and new minky styles. They come out of the wash almost dry after a high spin. I have been hanging them to dry to extend the life and love that they are still super soft without going in the dryer- unlike my older bamboo version. I do tend to grab for a liner as well since they aren't stay dry though, so I guess that kind of defeats the purpose! Every now and then I get one that comes out not smelling 100% clean for whatever reason, but it has always been fixed by sending it back through the wash a second time. I haven't noticed any chronic stink problems with them. I haven't had any issues with leaks and have been pleasantly surprised by just how much they can hold for my 22 month old. If I know we will be out for a few hours and in the car seat I sometimes add a doubler, but that is my own fear of leaks showing! I will say that every once in a while, this diaper might be on my son for 4 or more hours and still no leaks- hey, I'm not proud but sometimes it just happens, right?

Re: Pros & cons of "minky" diapers

The only minky I own are Totsbots and I got them specifically because they dry so fast! Like others said, they dry faster than BG shells and are so soft even after line drying!!
