Thanks to Huggies The Neonatal Trust has a beautiful boxed frame visual to show just show how small premature babies can be. Pictured to the right, this is a wonderful new tool for us to raise awareness. It will be used at events such as our upcoming Home & Garden Tour and other opportunities.
Underneath each nappy is the context of the weight of the respective wearers of these nappies, i.e., 500 grams for the ‘Nano’ nappy, and 3,450 grams for the ‘Standard’ nappy (which is the average weight of a baby in New Zealand).
For another visual reference, see below for a Nano Premmie nappy next to a standard pen!

About these special nappies, in the words of Huggies!
Huggies believes in leaving no baby unhugged, so this inspired us to create our tiniest nappy yet – the Nano Premmie Nappy.
Specially designed and developed in partnership with neonatal nurses, after extensive research and interviews with medical professionals and neonatal therapists, we designed a nappy for premature babies under 900 grams – providing the optimal fit for healthy growth development. Our Nano Premmie Nappies allow premmies to grow in comfort while accommodating for medical leads and tubes in the incubator.
Our Nano Premmie Nappy also features specially-sized fasteners and a narrow pad for more flexibility.
