Transcript: Pebbles cloth nappy on 2.2 kilo baby.
Hi. I’m Vicki from Bubblebubs, and today I’m with Baby Oliver who is about 2.2 kilos and three weeks old. Today, we will pop a Pebbles on Oliver and see how to get a good fit on a teeny, tiny preemie. It’ll be interesting to see.
This is about as small as we’d expect the Pebbles to go, so we’ll see how we go. We do these in one go and I haven’t done these yet, so fingers crossed it works.
The Pebbles are an all-in-one, so we have got all of our boosting and shell all in one piece. All we do is fold … Actually, I’ll do it in three because he won’t be waiting very much. So we just give the nappy a bit of a tug and we’re going to pop it on him.
I have never seen a Pebbles look so big on a baby, so what we’re going to do is we’re going to bring it up like this and as with any nappy, we want to make sure that we get a really good fit around the legs. So, actually, bringing the legs up and wrapping the wings around. Actually, I’ll do the other side first because we’re going to have a cross over.
So we make sure that we get a good seal around there. Pull the leg up like that and give a really good tug on the side, and just make sure that we’ve got a really good fit around the legs and around the waist.
I’m going to pick you up, darling, okay? Going to have a look at the back. And for such a super tiny nappy, it looks massive on him. We’ve got quite a good fit there, actually.
