Big Sister Duties

By | November 5, 2013

Right from the beginning of my pregnancy, C had told us that she’d like the baby to be a girl.  This isn’t surprising really, I expect the majority of 4 year old girls would pick a sister over a brother if they had the choice.

When T was born, we asked my mum not to tell C the sex of the baby so that we could tell her face to face.  When she came to the hospital the morning after T arrived she was already very excited and it was lovely to be able to tell her that she did get her wish and that baby was a girl.


She’s been really good with her so far.  She loves giving her cuddles and she’s, mostly, very helpful.  M has even been teaching her how to change nappies.

Newborns need their nappies changing a lot but we’ve been lucky enough to have been sent a months supply of the new Pampers New Baby Sensitive nappies.  These nappies contain up to 50% more skin care ingredients, which makes me happy as babies have such delicate skin.  We’ve been using them for a couple of weeks now and I’m really happy with them.  T’s skin is soft, with no redness, and they contain her wee and that lovely newborn poo well.

I also like the wetness indicator on the nappy although, if I’m completely honest, you can usually tell when a nappy is wet without the need for a colour changing line.  The geeky side of me thinks it’s a pretty cool feature though!

We’re using size 1 nappies which are for babies weighing 4 – 11 lbs.  T is nicely in the middle of this range at the moment and the nappies fit well.  The elasticated part around the legs seems snug but doesn’t leave any marks on her, and the waist can obviously be adjusted depending on how tight you fasten the tabs.

I’d definitely recommend the Pampers New Baby sensitive nappies and will be continuing to use them while T is small.

You can find out more about the New Baby Sensitive nappies on the Pampers facebook page.
