Ottawa, National Capital Region Moms

Hi All,

I'm in Ottawa. Mother of DS, 13 months old.

My faves are Fuzzi Bunz with two inserts for extra absorbency; one Joeybunz and one Mother of Eden.
Second fave is BumGenius AIO although they are a bit more leaky.

Fave wash is ECOS wash from Costco. Second fave is Natura from Home hardware.

And yes,

ECOS wash is all natural.
I don't soak or anything. I just run a warm wash with it, then rinse, then rinse one or two more times.

Once in a while I run the wash on hot, and once in a while I do soak them with 1/2 cup baking soda added to the water.

Re: Ottawa, National Capital Region Moms

I thought cloth diapers were addictive, but then I discovered the baby carriers on sale here. Yeeouch! They are so cool, I need someone to slap me - I do not need more, I do not need more, I do not need more....

What forums do you guys visit? DO you find it weird the Canada FSOT is like a regular forum? And why is Canada so oddly divided up in this area?

Hi all! I am not living in the Ottawa area now but grew up in Morrisburg (take Bank Street south until you hit the St. Lawrence river). I will be back home for our family reunion this spring and am wondering if there are any B&M cloth diapering stores in the area I need to check out!

www.extraordinarybabyshoppe.com

And

www.amotherstouch.biz - but she runs this out of the front room of her home.

Milkface sells clothes and carriers only.

Hi mamas! I'm just up the 417 about 1/2 way to North Bay.

blueandpurpleskittles - you are the ONLY other person I've seen who uses the Natura detergent from HH!
