We have investigated a nonlinear pulse reshaping towards parabolic pulses in the passive normal dispersive optical fibers. We have found that pulses with parabolic intensity profile, parabolic spectrum and linear chirp can be obtained due to the passive nonlinear reshaping at the propagation distance exceeding a few dispersion lengths. These pulses preserve parabolic profile during subsequent pulse propagation in a fiber. We have examined the influence of initial pulse parameters and fiber parameters on the resulted pulse shape.
