jeangrey has indicated that this thread is about France

I will be travelling to Italy and France for 2 1/2 weeks in May of this year, with my son who will be nearly a year old at that time. Does anyone know where I will be able to buy diapers/formula/wipes in Bellagio, Arles (or Provence in general)and Paris? Also, I will need a stroller, esp. once I'm in Paris. I don't want to bring ours since it is very bulky. Do you think I can buy a lightweight one there? I've travelled to these countries before but not with a baby! Help!!!

Bonjour jeangrey

As I'm expecting a baby ... If you stay in Arles here is the adress of a supermarket, close to downtown :
http://www.geant.fr/ then click on "l'entreprise géant" then click on "votre supermarché" at last choose ARLES.
There you may find everything for your baby and you !
It's easy to access by car or bus.
If you have any question about Arles and Alpilles, my name:

Eric Capdeville
May is perfect !

You should have no problem finding baby stuff in any reasonably large city in France.
Most of them have supermarket that store baby food, diapers and so on. There are also specialized stores where you will find other things, including strollers. Here are the main ones:
Autour de Bébé
Aubert

In Paris, the arrondissement where most baby stores are is the 15th. Sauvel Natal is a good discounter and has its headquarters there.
