La Petite Crème is an alternative to baby wipes that was created by Fanny and Cecile. It has been parent-approved in France for decades now. The unique lotion not only cleans and disinfects (exactly like a wipe) it also protects and calms the diaper area in one single application. It has no harmful chemicals or ingredients and is a great natural alternative to using wipes. It’s not only convenient and easy to use it’s also cloth diaper safe!

I paid normal price for the pictured products; I was sent an incorrect product by mistake and am giving it away.Lil’ Outlaws was one of the first WAHM made “cloth safe” brands I encountered when I began cloth diapering in 2009. My favorite product is the Lil’ Outlaws Texas Ranger Rump Solution, which is “stars” you dissolve in warm water to make wipes solution. I was so sad when I heard the company was closing but the company is back in business, under new ownership!
I love Thirsties products. My younger son is still using the Duo Diaper I bought for his brother almost 2 1/2 years ago, and the size 1 duo diaper and duo wraps were some of my favorites on my newborn (even if I do still type “dup” instead of “duo” almost every time!) Duo diapers & wraps are two of a handful that I reach for when I need to be sure I don’t have leaks, and I took duo wraps along on my family trip in June, as well as my trip to ABC last month.
Just Clean Wipe Bits are pieces of wipe solution you dissolve in water to make an easy, hypoallergenic (and vegan) cloth wipe solution.
Ingredients are: Glycerin (kosher of vegetable origin), Purified Water, Soybean protein (conditioner), Olive Oil (naturally contains Vitamin E and anti-oxidants), Apricot Kernel Oil (softening/moisturizer), Witch Hazel (skin toner/healing) and Tea tree Oil
Just use 1 bit per 8 oz of water, heat the water & stir to dissolve. I like to use distilled water to keep it fresher. I typically use a spray bottle to spritz wipes (or directly on the bottom…that’s what I do for my older son but it seems to surprise the baby too much, LOL.)
This time, I folded my wipes to pop up and poured the solution over them (I used about 2 cups for 13 wipes.) This was nice, but I don’t often do it since I have two in diapers so what I can fit in one container isn’t enough for a day. Doing this would be better with thinner wipes and/or with only 1 in diapers!
The bits are available in 1 scent only, to keep prices down. The solution smells like its ingredients, and reminds me of a Clean & Clear shine control astringent (in a green bottle) that I used in the early 1990’s (probably the witch hazel?). My husband thinks it smells like a cleaning product.
It did the job to get my boys clean without leaving residue. It’s hypoallergenic and the witch hazel & TTO help soothe. A bag of 20 bits (makes 20 cups of solution) retails for $4.99, but is value priced at $2.99 through April 7th.
Maria wants to live in a world where cloth diapers are the norm and moms can make parenting choices without judgement. When she’s not chasing her 10, 6 and 3 year old kids around, you might find her checking out the latest gadgets, organizing something (again) or exercising in the fresh air. Read More »
