Thanks a lot!!! I am making a whole bunch of testers (AI2s, AIOs, Pockets, wool covers) and on my way to start my own little business "on the side". Tell me if you would like to try them out! They will be posted on my etsy soon (within the next couple of days...)

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

HI
I'm new here too. I live up in the Discovery islands, near Quadra.

I recently found the Huckleberry baby shop online, she's just north of Nanaimo in Lantzville (Sorry I'm too new to be allowed to post links I guess). She carries some great stuff and for good prices compared to other Canadian sites I have gone too. Plus discounts for larger orders. I'm new to cloth diapers (actually have yet to implement them on baby #4) but am very excited.

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

I'm in Victoria, and I have bought from Jamtots, ebay and here on Diaperswappers. I have a small stash of about 6 diapers and will be doing the newborn stage in disposables as my chance on having a C-section due to medical issues is very high.

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

I'm from Victoria and if I buy any locally it's through JamTots but I really don't like anything they have. They don't really have much of a selection. I usually buy on the FSOT here.

eta: steph, looks great! I also am on my way to making my own...I would love to do it as a wahm business. I am jealous of your snap press, lol!

hahaha!!! yeah I agree entirely with you on the lack of selection on the local scale. Not that Jamtots is bad, don't get me wrong but it just seems that some of us could come up with styles of diapers that would complement their products. As for the snap press, TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY. I got mine from the US, at "Oh Snap USA!" before the dollar went down. The money is just about all recovered with the testers that I posted on a different thread.... I am already getting a lot of feedback from great moms. It's not easy to get started, but with small steps we local mamas can go a long way!

cheers.

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

Hi! I just signed up when I saw this thread.

I buy all my diapers from BlueZoobabyboutique (just add the www and com) or Jamtots... BlueZoo is local and will deliver locally (Victoria and surrounding areas).

I'm having fun the past couple weeks playing with new diapers (I'm the tester for BlueZoo's products) but we use a stash of TinyTushes and BerryPlushes the most. But I'm excited to try new diapers.

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

Hi all I am new here and from Victoria too. I was a bit slow getting on board with CDing, I didn't start till DD was 10 months old. I wanted try when she was 6 months, but lets just say a bad experience with a local retailer kept DD in sposies. I finally bought 6 fuzzi bunz on line and I am loving cloth. I mean they are so soft, so cute, why oh why didn't I do this earlier. I want to try more. I hate that there is no local selection because shopping blind is always a risk, but it worked with my FB's so here hoping.
