Why Drop Baby Wipes?

The answer is very simple: PROTECTION!

Your wipes are failing youFrom the moment your little one is born, your instinct tells you that you need to protect him/her.
And you do so - tirelessly.

Your baby will go over 2,500 diapers in the first year. Which means 2,500 instances of acidic liquid or solid waste being in contact with your baby's precious sensitive bottom. Sometimes for a few seconds, most likely for a few minutes and fingers crossed for a few hours when your little one is soundly sleeping.

So what is protecting her skin then? Are you applying protective balm at every diaper change as directed by your pediatrician? 

Don't feel guilty, no one does. Why? Because life with a newborn is crazy and every second counts so we cut corners.
We all do it!


La Petite Creme will protect your baby's bottom 24/7 without having you to think about applying it! 
How? By replacing your baby wipes (which only cleanse) and ADDING the protective agent to your cleansing product. 
Replace baby wipes by French diapering lotion
Certified Organic and made with only 6 natural ingredients, La Petite Creme is an All-in-one Cleanser & Protective Lotion which replaces the use of:

That way, the one step that you won't cut from your routine - cleansing - will take care of all the needs of your baby's sensitive bottom.

"I am concerned about the long term effects on my baby's health of ingredients I cannot pronounce."
So are we!

French Moms don't use Baby Wipes! (™)

French Mom's Don't User Baby Wipes
How come none of my French baby patients experience diaper rash?
-- Dr. P. - Cecile's pediatrician
When Cecile (co-founder of La Petite Creme) heard her pediatrician make this statement, she knew there was something in the French Diapering Routine that was giving French babies an edge on preventing diaper rash. 
It turns out that French Moms don't use baby wipes on a regular basis. Baby wipes exist in France of course but they are not the primary product parents use to change diapers: Oleo-Calcareous Liniment is.

La Petite Creme - Cloth Diaper Safe
Recommended by hospitals and pediatricians throughout Europe, this multi-purpose lotion is known to help protect against 5 of the main causes of diaper rash:
  • Acidity of stool and urine
  • Chafing or rubbing
  • Introduction of new foods / stool change
  • Increased frequency of stools
  • Sensitive skin
