We numerically and experimentally demonstrate that pulses with a parabolic intensity profile can be formed by passive reshaping of more conventional laser pulses using nonlinear propagation in a length of normally dispersive nonlinear fibre. Moreover, we show that the parabolic shape can be stabilised by launching these pulses into a second length of fiber with suitably different nonlinear and dispersive characteristics relative to the initial reshaping fiber.
