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.
