In this video, Vicki fits a Candie on 3kg baby Archer. Candies are a One Size Fits Most (OSFM) modern cloth nappy. Being OSFM, they can fit from birth, but they are much bulkier on newborns than on an older baby over 4.5kg. Compared to the BoPeep, it’s more difficult to get a good leg seal with the Candie on a 3kg newborn.
A good fit around a newborn baby’s legs is key to ensuring a comfortable and leak-free cloth nappy, so while it’s possible to use an OSFM nappy on a newborn, a good leg seal is easier to achieve with a newborn-sized nappy on smaller newborn bubs.

Hi, everyone, I’m Vicki from Bubblebubs and I’m back to show you, we’ve still got the Bo Peep on – just for now, it’s stinky.
And what I’m gonna do is, I’m gonna put the Candie on – which is our one-size nappy. I just want to show you the difference between having a newborn-specific nappy and having a one-size nappy on a three-kilo baby.
So, just going to– I know, I knew you were not gonna be happy at this. So I’ve got the nappy all prepared. If you’d like to see how the, how to put the Candies together, we do have other videos.
So what we would do is bring the trifold up and sweep that out again. He’s so tiny, we’re going to have to fold this trifold all the way down. And– I know sweetie, I will be really quick. We keep it real here. Why, why have him when he’s not crying? Now that’s to the end. All right darling, let’s get your nappy on. What I’m gonna do– I’ll give you a cuddle in a sec.
So they’re on the end snaps, and you can see, we can barely even get a seal around the legs there. I’m going to pick him up and I’ll have a play with– Hi sweetheart! Maybe if you actually pooped instead of farted, we’d be better.
But you can actually see here that even on, oh that’s not the tightest snap. I’ll show you on this one. We’re struggling to get a good fit around the legs on a three-kilo baby. So, hang on, can I pop you down and try and get the other side? No, okay. We won’t push him any further.
So, but as you can see it’s a lot, lot bulkier. I will pop him down for one second. And we’ll do some comparison videos of how much bigger a one-size nappy is on a newborn versus the, versus – Oh, okay, maybe he did, he farted – how much bigger that is compared with the, with the Pebble – not, not the Pebble, the Bo Peep.
I’m not gonna push him any further. See ya, guys.
