Re: Ottawa, National Capital Region Moms

I'm in Ottawa too, for now. We're shipping out sooner rather than later.

Don't forget http://www.theclothdiapermarket.com

She's in Barrhaven too (like Jennie from A Mother's Touch) and is a member here on DS! She stocks mostly Canadian-Made and WAHM-made.

Re: Ottawa, National Capital Region Moms

Hey - I know I'm not in Canada, but I'm right next door. I live 2 miles from the border & go over the bridge more now that I've made friends

I wanted to share a link for a mom w/a store in Ottawa http://www.clothdiapermarket.com/

Her name is Andrea & she's got a store out of her house - you can make appointments & go over & check things out. I'm jealous of her since I don't have a showroom in my house LOL

HTH someone! And if you guys get together, can I please come? LOL

ETA: I must have missed someone already shared this! Sorry K didn't realize there was another page to this.

This tread is a little old... but you must be in Petawawa right? I grew up in Pembroke and currently live in Renfrew... go Ottawa Valley!

Re: Ottawa, National Capital Region Moms

Hi clothmammas

I'm also in Ottawa (eastern) and after falling in love with cloth diapers with my son I have gone and started my own business. Check out my website if you have a few minutes. My favorite dipes for my son are the DryBees Hybrid and OS bumGenius pocket. For nightime, I think that the Happy Hempy fitted with a So Simple cover rocks!! I've have NEVER had a leak with it EVER! Love it! Also, I can't wait to try the AIO one size organic dipe that bumGenius is coming out with. I'm expecting them in in early June. Should be a great diaper! Nice to meet other clothmammas!

Cheers,
Vicky

Curious as to who you are as I grew up in the 'burg too! Just moved to the city with my hubby. We are now right near Greenbank/Pinecrest. No kids yet, but planning to adopt in a few years once we have more saved!

Did you use PureLan or Lansinoh while breastfeeding? You can use that. Add a pea-sized dollop to a small container with a lid (like a baby food jar), fill it about half full with boiling water, put the lid on, and shake it (to melt the lanolin). Put your wool soaker in enough lukewarm water to cover it, and mix the melted lanolin in with the water, and let your cover soak, let the water out, then let the cover air-dry. I've also heard of ppl rubbing the lanolin into their hands (like all over your hands), and patting down the cover.

cheers,
susie

Howdy neighbour! Dh and I have been in Pet for 7 years now - yippee skippy! lol

If you ever have any CD questions (like the wool one), give me a call (number on my site contact me page) and I'd be glad to help out.

I've got some wool wash and lanolin spray if you want to borrow it. My ds is out of diapers, so I only use it now for what I make.
