Free nappies for pre-term babies have previously only been available from hospitals or healthcare providers.
Around 1 in every 13 babies are born premature in the UK. This is a total of 60,000 babies each year who need smaller sized nappies to protect their delicate skin.
Pampers Preemie Protection Nappies are the smallest nappy Pampers make and come in three sizes. The smallest is three times smaller than a regular newborn nappy.
The nappies come in three sizes and fit babies weighing less than 1.1lbs up to babies weighing 4lbs. They can then move into standard newborn sized nappies.
Nappies for premature babies are specially designed for the most delicate skin with a customisable fit that can accommodate medical leads and lines, helping minimise disruption during nappy changing.
