Brock is now 6-months-old and weighs 7kg. He is a little bit older and a little bit wiser but a lot more active. Today, Vicki shows us how a Candie all-in-two looks on him at this age.
Our award-winning Candies are an all-in-two nappy. At this age when babies start to roll and move the Candie’s side snaps really shine. They are fool-proof to put on and this pays off as babies get more active!

Transcription Candie cloth nappies on Brook at 6months 7kg.
Hi. It’s Vicki from Bubblebubs, and I’m back with baby Brook who is six months old now and about seven kilos. So we’re going to see how the Candies are fitting on him. So the Candies come as an all in two. So the tri-fold snaps into the waterproof shell, like this.
By this age it’s always good to be nice and prepared and has all your nappies ready, because he’s starting to get to that rolling over stage, making nappy changes just that little bit more difficult. So, what we do, is we pop the tri-fold into the Candie and give it the little bit of a stretch, like that. Also, so, what we’re going to do is we’re going to pop it underneath him.
So we want to line it up again, just underneath his waist, around that area so, what we’re going to do, is we’re going to bring the tri-fold up, and bring the wing over. So, I find it easier to put my hand underneath and support the snaps. So we’re going to pop it on, we’re going to try about the second-last snap, and do the waist and the legs up the same for him.
If you did have a bubby with chunky thighs, you might need to go one smaller with the waist nuts, but he’s pretty much in proportion, his legs to his waist. So, we’re going to do the same on the other side, while he rolls over. There are some secrets to getting them to stop rolling over.
A little toy or something like that, but of course we don’t have that. So yeah, the most important thing with any nappy is to make sure that you get a good fit around the legs and the waist. If we wanted to boost this for a day-sleep, we can grab the booster that comes with the nappy, pop it in the front of the nappy, and again… Grab it. Hey, hey.
So again, do the legs up and the waist and repeat on the other side. What we’ll do, okay, I think that one can go one tighter on the waist. So I’m going to pick you up, and we’ll see how that looks on the back, hey? Up, up, up. So as you can see, excellent fit around the waist.
