In this video Vicki shows us how to put a Bambam on a newborn. Bambams are part of a two-step modern cloth nappy system; a fitted cloth nappy and cover. A two-step system is brilliant because it is bomb-proof, anything that escapes the fitted nappy gets caught in the double-gusseted cover.
Transcript How to put on a Bambam.
Hi, I’m Vicki from BubbleBubs, and today I want to show you how to put a Bambam on a newborn. So this is Brock, he is a whole six days old today, or six days young, and he weighs around about 3.2 kilos, so pretty average size newborn.
So what we’ve got is the Bambam, so that comes in two pieces, which is your outer part and a tri-fold, which you can fold into three, and sits in the nappy like that. So what we do is we grab bub, and we position the back of the nappy around about his hips, like this. Okay, so it looks huge, we’ve got all of this fabric here.
So what we do is bring the booster up, and then grab the nappy, now make sure that we’re pulling the elastic nice and firm and then just fold the cloth nappy down at the front, which is really good for a boy in particular ’cause he’s going to do all of his wetting at the front. And so I hold it with two fingers, grab your snappy and hip to hip nice and firm and pull it down nice and tight like that.
