Aside from the fact that they’re going to get through a fair few of them, new parents often don’t give a second thought to the size of a newborn nappy. The new Huggies Little Snugglers Nano Preemie Diapers have been specially designed to protect the fragile skin of premature babies, while also helping to encourage healthy growth and development. The World Health Organisation reports that around 15 million babies are born prematurely every year.
Sitting in our NCT class as the instructor passed round pictures of tiny premature babies in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), I looked on in empathetic ambivalence. Even though I was expecting twins and therefore classed as high-risk, my pregnancy had passed by complication-free, so with any luck that wouldn’t happen to me.
