Pampers® Preemie Swaddlers Size P-3 Diaper

Pampers Preemie
The new Pampers Swaddlers line-up is specially designed for premature infants – because we know the smallest babies need the proper fit, tailored features and a soft touch the most. Designed with NICU nurses around the world, the new "right-sized" diapers include customizable features that enable minimal disruption to care. For the first time anywhere in the world, we introduced a size smaller than our micro-preemie, also called size P-3, sized to fit babies less than 800g. This new size, as well as our existing micro-preemie size P-2, have several substantial improvements.
