Moving to Malibu! Need info!

Hey Mamas! In a few months my family will be moving cross country to Malibu. I wonder if local mamas can point me in the direction of any nearby cloth diaper stores and also a good midwife/obgyn since we will be trying for that girl soon! Also would love to hear about the area from locals. I am originally from escondido but I honestly know nothing about the area we will be moving too so any info/advice would be much appreciated!

Re: Moving to Malibu! Need info!

There's a service called blessedbums that does delivery.
I know my wife is very happy with her doctor....Olivia Crooks at ST Johns in Santa Monica.

I'm a local real estate agent if you need any help finding the right area here in Malibu. 310 699 8428.

Hope this helps!

Re: Moving to Malibu! Need info!

I delivered at West Hills which is right over the hill in the Valley and could not have been more pleased with my experience there. They are a TINY hospital that only averages 100 babies a month, so you receive quality care. There are multiple OB offices that have rights at West Hills.

There aren't really local cloth diaper stores. There's the Green Diaper Store where the owner, Lisa, sells out of her home, but I really don't like her. I prefer to shop from Kissed By the Moon and just have it shipped. Like PP said Blessed Bums does prefolds as a delivery service.

The Pump Station & Nurtury has locations in Santa Monica and Westlake Village. Depending on time of day and exactly where you are in Malibu, they would be equidistant to you.

I grew up in this area and live in the general area now It's the perfect place to have kids, which is why I am still here. PM me if you need any assistance with areas etc.

Are physicians there friendly with the delayed/selective vax thing? I had to hunt all over for one in my area and never would have gotten in with her if I hadn't shamelessly name-dropped. I would hate to have all that trouble again.

My boys doc in Burbank, a little further away seems like she would be okay with selective vax. Her name is Najwa Shammas. She is the only Dr. in the practice, and I can usually get a same day appointment. I have heard great things about Dr. Lisa Little who delivers at West Hills hospital. My diapers are sold at a children's resale shop in Long Beach and she carries BG also. I have also started a mom's play group on FB for So Cal moms, if you are interested.

oh that sounds great! I'm not sure when our move date is yet. It will probably be a few months at least but I would love to join a playgroup and get to know some people in the area!

Yes, Lisa Little is great! She is in practice with my doctor.
