Baby liniment - The natural alternative to wipes

En Mai, fais ce qu'il te plait.

Posted by Canelle LEFORESTIER

 

 

“En Mai fait ce qu’il te plait”.

A French saying that basically means “in May do whatever you like”. Sounds pleasant, right?

Well, this May, Petit Kiddo contacted all the customers who placed order of our Baby Bum Care Liniment between September and November 2018. Not what we wanted to do at all, but we gotta do what we gotta do ;) 

The consistency of our product had shifted and it had become grainy and sticky.  It was still safe but it was leaving a not-so-nice-layer on the skin. Not what we wanted. Not what we wanted for you. Not what you were expecting. 

We went back to square one. Brainstormed to understand why, how....

We re-formulated. And again. And again. We wanted to have a stable NATURAL Cleanser+ Moisturiser+Barrier; being certain it would be palm oil free and have as little ingredients as possible.

It took time.

And more time as to put samples into “stress” and check its stability under real life like conditions.

So May came - how quickly did the year started, seriously?!?- we were finally ready to roll again.

June, we are ready for you with a great Liniment Oleo-calcaire made in Australia. We are ready to help babies [and everyone wearing nappies] to have the softest bottom!

Our existing clients are happy and we are looking forward to having new ones.

Be nice to our planet and even kinder to your little one: Ditch the Wipes.

Posted by Canelle LEFORESTIER

 


 

Europe is finally considering to ban single use plastic  Yay! but we have a long way to go on the wipes front. 

Wipes are not flushable, even if said so, they DO NOT dissolve. It’s a FACT.

Read the article below about the poor workers of Charleston (South Carolina)  who had to dive 30m down a sewage pipe to remove congealed wipes of all sorts.

They had to take a bleach bath with their wetsuit still on after their mission. EEeeeerk.

Yes, because not only are they clogging pipes but bacterias will develop on the fatbergs…. Sorry but this is gross and potentially dangerous.

It is time to stop this and revert to a better nappy change routine.

Yes, we hear you, “ but we do not flush our wipes” but throwing them away in landfill can’t be any better. Imagine the fumes when incinerating them!

There is no #planetB my lovelies, we need to take care of this pretty cool one.

If you don’t do it for the planet, nor the skin of your cherished ones, you might do it for your $$ co’s guess who is paying for broken pumps and all the additional work involved...us, you, taxpayers.

We can all change this. #ditchthewipes

Episode eight: Canelle and Morgan interviewed by Little Box of Love


Little Box of Love  loves  Petit Kiddo...  and here is us in the "MUMLIFE MINI SERIES-Day 5..

mumspreneurs behind Petit Kiddo

     

 

                                           

What is your amazing business?

We are Petit Kiddo and we have created an all-natural rinse-free Baby Bum Cleanser. It is the Australian version of the French parents best kept secret. It is a 3in1 product - it cleanses, moisturises and leaves a protective barrier that helps prevent nappy rash. Our Baby Bum Cleanser provides an eco-friendly alternative to single-use wipes.

What is your goal for 2017?

Our main goal this year is to reach greater awareness of Petit Kiddo within Australian carers: parents, child care centers and maternity wards. We want more people embracing a healthy, natural and eco friendly way of cleaning their baby’s bum.

What do you like to do to relax? 

- Canelle: Relax….mmmmm...does getting lost on instagram count? I think not, so if I’m tired, I read - in French- or, if I need to clear my head, I listen {very loudly} to Jamaican music, from rocksteady to reggae, or 90’s French hip-hop and dance. Chatting with my girlfriends is also a life saver! In person with my "crew" here or via Whatsapp with my childhood soul-sisters from France. 

- Morgan: When I have time to relax, I like to go for a walk or chill out at a nice cafe with brunch. I also enjoy going for a massage, or just stay in a cosy place with a good glass of wine...

Your favourite family friendly holiday destination and why? 

- Canelle: I love the pacific islands. So far we have been to Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu. People are adorable, my kids can live wild&free and mainly...naked! Landscapes are gorgeous and it is not as far as going back home! I love going to France but it is quite an interesting journey each time; I come from a little village “hidden behind” Cannes and St Tropez, summer there is simply gorgeous…..

- Morgan: Around Australia, that would be going to Fij for ultimate relaxation and snorkelling. In Europe, it is either Italy ( Art, History, Culture and food…) or the mountains, either skiing or summer randonnées in higher lands…

Your favourite child friendly cafe? 

- Canelle: I’d say Shuk as they are in my area and there is a kids’ area but my all times fav’moccha is at Piadina, in my street!

- Morgan: It used to be Jed’s but I have now to second Canelle with Shuk!!!

What is your motherly advice to other mums reading this? 

- Canelle: Do your best, listen to all advices you will be given - and there will be loads- and then decide what suit you and your fam bam. Don’t try to make your point with people giving you advices, it is a lost battle (this includes my advice ;)). And it’s ok if your kid go without a shower, if you are too tired or busy... 

- Morgan: Trust yourself, trust your motherly instinct especially when you are a first time mom…Many of us think we don’t know anything because it is a first time but that is so wrong!!! And One advice if I may… Keep your kids away from screens…. They will have their entire adult life to be in front of screens… let them enjoy simple things for now

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!
