But now I realize I like the FB's better than the BG's, and I want to buy some more FBs. We aren't planning to go back to the States any time soon. So I'm looking for some affordable FBs in medium size. Will trade BG's 3.0 in baby blue color (I have 6 of these, with cotton babies inserts).

Any ideas on where to buy reasonably-priced diapers in this area?

Hey Christina,

We live in Tsawwassen and keep a PO Box in Point Roberts. I order almost everything to there. I rarely have to pay duty when I cross the border and declare the items. We used to have one in Blaine but that is too far away. Point Roberts might work better for you too. Anyways, shipping within the US is so much cheaper and you don't get stuck with those nasty brokerage fees by having them sent directly to Canada. If you are interested in the company PM me. You can set up your account online then just show ID when you go to pick up your stuff. The fee is usually $3 a package.

Hi Christina,

The only local place to buy that I'm aware of is new and green baby. They're selling FB at $22.99 each and there's free shipping if you enter code fuzzibunzfreeship for purchases of 12 up until Dec 31st. For a better deal, I can see that cozybums.ca are selling these at $21.50 for qty 1-11 and then $19.55 for qty 12+ plus they offer free shipping for purchases of $100 or more. Might be worthwhile just to search around Cdn websites to see if you can find a better deal if you want to purchase new. Otherwise, FSOT forum have a lot of used ones for sale that you can check out. Also saw some on local craigslist the other day for $12 if they're still there.

Re: Vancouver Area moms?!

I'm here too! I am in Surrey and I own Bouncing Babies. My FB sale was supposed to end Dec 31, but I have extended it until Monday Jan 5. Brand new FB $18. I am out of stock of mediums, but have more on the way. I am accepting preorders at my sale price. Contact me if you are interested.

On the non-business side of things, I am Catherine. CD'ing (obviously), co-sleeping, BF, WAHM/WOHM, RN and Foster mom and Mom to DS #1 (Jun 05) and DS #2(Nov 07).

I didn't realize this part of DS existed. I thought it was mostly people based in the US. Happy to be here.

For the eco friendly parent
