Baby liniment - The natural alternative to wipes

Episode seven: they talked about Petit Kiddo...

How Petit Kiddo helped easing ezcemaA few months ago, we "virtually" met Mel, a very keen user of Petit Kiddo Baby Bum Cleanser Liniment. 

... Later, she contacted us to write about us, Petit Kiddo, and our "one-of-a-kind" Baby Bum Cleanser Liniment

This article is a good reminder that Petit Kiddo is doing the right thing, for the right reason. By introducing such a gentle and natural baby bum cleanser+moisturiser+barrier in Australia, more and more carers come to understand the importance of the ingredients in what the product they use for their kids as well as the impact it has on the environment. 

It takes time to change habits, no doubt, but once converted, carers never go back to using wipes! We are getting heartwarming feedbacks from our early adopters.

We thank Mel again for her great article that we take as a testimony!

Episode six: we met Marie-Camille

A testimonial for Petit Kiddo from a French mum we met recently, Marie-Camille.        Not a friend - yet!- we only bumped into each other - at a French wine private sale          - hehehe-  She is a newbie in Australia but was living for a couple of years in New Zealand and in few other countries before. So French roots with traveling wings.

French in Australia

"When my daughter was born (11 years ago) my best friend sent me a 500 ml bottle of baby Liniment as a gift! She had had it for her 4 kids and loved it! The smell/fragrance, the texture were so new to me. I poured a bit on a cotton pad and started cleaning my daughter's cute little bottom with it. I was immediately conquered, she never ever had a rash in 4 years of using nappies! The fact that it's 100% natural made me feel good too, all those baby wipes never inspired me...So if I have one thing to say: go for it and tell your friends!".

What Marie-Camille omits to say here, is that she had a son 6 years later when living overseas and they didn’t get the chance to have any liniment oleo-calcareous for him. She’s missed it a lot and when we told her about our Petit Kiddo project: making an Australian version of the French baby liniment, with local ingredients and organic olive oil...you should have seen the grin on her face - and on mine to be honest.
It feels good when you explain what you have been spending your time on and it does resonate!

Episode four, who: Morgan

Morgan Petit Kiddo

Morgan came naturally on board: we met totally randomly at the antenatal course for our first borns almost 10 years ago.

When the midwifes in charge of the first meeting asked us to introduce ourselves to the person sitting next to us, Morgan and I had our first chat.

10 years on, I still remember the boots she was wearing on that Wednesday night.

We have now 3 kids each, we have moved cities - for us-  and countries - for them- but never lost the bond we built that day and maintain ours and our kids' friendship. And it turns out our other halves get along very well too.

Morgan is French and Australian. She was a dedicated user of the French liniment for her girls, just like me. 

There was no better fit.

We are the same but different: where I bring my marketing and business background, she adds the rigour and vision of the experienced and internationally qualified architect that she is.

Episode Two, who: Canelle

I’m this mum. Canelle, I was born French and became Australian.

I was bringing this product back from my trip back home - sacrificing shopping spree in Paris - for my first born; I was making it in my kitchen for my second. I had it posted over for the youngest.

Very quickly when the Petit Kiddo adventure started, I realised I needed help. I already had my best team of consultants ever: my mates with extensive background in marketing, legal, graphic design, art, "mumology", entrepreneur but I needed a side kick, a business partner, an alter ego to get the ideas bouncing.
