On a tight budget? How to use a Candie shell instead of a sized cover

If you're on a tight budget and don't want to buy sized covers to go over your Bambams you can buy Candies (either the whole thing to use late or just the shell) and use that as a one size fits most (OSFM) cover over your Bambams. In this video Vicki shows how easy this little economical trick is.


- Hi, it's Vicki from Bubblebubs here, and I just want to show you, you can use other things other than your regular covers in your stash. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna pop this Bambam on little Brock here. So, if you're wanting to invest in newborn nappies, and you're on a bit of a tight budget, what you can do, is instead of buying sized covers or smaller covers, you can get things like a candy shell, which you'll be able to use later on with the inserts, and pop this on over a Bambam, and make sure that we've got good fit around the legs and around the waist, and just tuck our nappy in. Okay, that's good demo when you haven't got a good fit around the legs or waist. Okay, and repeat on the other side. So this means if you find a one size fits most shell that you really like the pattern of, and you can't get it in a cover, just use your shell as a cover over a fitted nappy.
