We Can't Make This Spit Up

Petites Frites Burp Cloths, Teethers, and Bibs

petites frites baby accessories!

When you’re 60 years old and have reflux, the doctor prescribes Nexium. When you’re 60 days old and have reflux, you puke.

If trails of spit-up follow you wherever you go, keep things tidy with Petites Frites burp cloths and bibs.

These wonders are more than just your average mess-catchers. Made from a blend of organic cotton and lyocell (a sustainable textile), the custom combo is highly absorbent and quick to dry. Plus, the double-sided knit, in primary colors and earth tones, feels plush to the touch — be it baby’s chin or your shoulder.

Teether blankies are made from the same thirsty material and embellished with natural maple wood rings and hand-crocheted shapes for safe gnawing and excessive drooling.

And that doesn’t bite.

Available online at petitesfrites.com, $12-$84.
