Cloth Diapers: Made In Canada

Cloth Diapers

I have a ton of Canadian readers and often my recommendations are unavailable to them or quite costly to ship (not to mention they have to wait weeks for a diaper sometimes!).

I ran across this great video (at the end of the post) by AppleCheeks diapers a Canadian made pocket diaper.  The diaper design looks fantastic.  I love the front snap, elastic in front, microfleece inner, and wide size range aspects.

Upon researching where you can purchase AppleCheeks diapers I discovered Peekaboo Bottoms.  They offer an excellent selection of every type of cloth diaper: AIO, Pockets, Fitteds, Prefolds, Inserts…  (hint: they have some in stock footed Woolybottoms!!  this is a rarety!)

More of my favorite Canadian (yep I buy from Canada even though it takes a while to get here) WAHMs and stores:

Lotus Baby : bamboo one size fitted diapers

Baby Be Blessed : one size fitteds, Zorb inserts and doublers and other items.

Banana Bottoms : fitted diapers and more

BubuBebe : GORGEOUS fitted diapers, wipes, burp cloths and blankets.  Her fabrics are beautiful.

Parenting By Nature : an online baby store carrying cloth diapers, covers, baby carriers, mom and baby items, and more.

New and Green Baby Company : a family run cloth diaper store

There are many more Canadian WAHMs that deserve more love.  Please let me know your favorites.

The first half is in English, the second is in French. The French part sounds so much prettier lol.

    One of my favorite Canadian stores is All Natural Babies. There are actually 2 locations and both ladies are great to deal with. They have TONS of diapers of every type and they always take the time to answer any questions and help if I have any problems. I have recommended them to lots of my friends too and they have been happy too! Here’s the link to their facebook group http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/group.php?gid=35071342395&ref=ts They have actual stores and that makes it fun to go shopping even if it means I spend more than I planned when I see neat things they have. They are both located in Alberta but one is at Sherwood Park and one is near Red Deer.

    Dear Desperate Mom:
    Happy Heinys come in XXL 40-60lbs
    Fuzzi Bunz come in XL 45+
    SustainableBabyish have an XL size as well.
    You will have to get a retailer that carries these brands to special order them for you. As well, there are biodegradable disposable diapers that come in very large sizes. Can’t remember the name right now, but try searching.
    AND look into KCK diapers – they have a large assortment of patterns to make your own large diapers, and a list of online sellers that can sew them for you, if you don’t sew yourself. Good luck.

    Thank you Autumn for this wonderful posting. Bubu Bebe has the most amazing prints I have ever seen. Have you tried these ones yourself?
    I think they are definitely worth purchasing to see the results. We are still working on building up our stash so we have lots of room for new editions. These are beautiful! Hopefully they work as well as they look!

    Desparate Mom:

    Flip diapers fit quite large, my daughter is 28 lbs and still has 2 snaps to go on either side. And they work amazingly well :)

    I know AppleCheeks also sells extenders for their waist bands but I’m not sure how they would work… my daughter is almost too big at the waist for their size 2’s without the extenders. HTH.

    HappyHeiny’s also sells pocket-style training pants that come in very large sizes, they fit bigger than the size listed though so be aware of that if you decide to go with these. You can order pull on, one side snaps or both side snaps in many great colors… as with all their diapers these are very waterproof… a little awkward to stuff though.

    These are all available at http://www.tinygem.ca. I am a cloth diaper consultant for the tinygem website, so if you do order from them please mention my name in the comments section :)

    We’re Canadian and ordered applecheeks diapers from their site and still had to wait 3 weeks to get them. They didn’t even ship our oder out for 2 1/2 weeks, it was frustrating with the slow service.

    Hi Autumn,
    Thanks for mentioning New & Green Baby Co. in your list! We also are big on education. If folks find they want to get “hands on” diapers after reading your e-book, then let them know we regularly run Cloth Diaper 101 Workshops and a very popular Diaper Tester Program TM, out of Vancouver, BC.

    They have the option of XL in the packages then also 1 XL white in the original style.

    I just found your blog while randomly searching the internet for help and was hoping you could pass some advice my way.

    I have a 3 1/2 year old son, who is about 40 lbs. He is special needs and will still need diapers for quite some time. I used to use gdiapers but we’ve outgrown their largest size. Right now I am using Seventh Generation size 4T/5T disposable pull ups b/c they are the only kind I can find that fit him. I would LOVE to go all cloth but can’t find anything that would work for our situation.

    The closest thing I have come to is FuzziBunz. Their size chart says large goes up to 45 lbs. but since we’re so close to that I wanted to go up to the XL which is for over 45 lbs. but I can’t find them to buy anywhere. I even wrote to them and have never heard back.

    Any suggestions?

      To Desperate Mom,

      I understand you frustration, which is why I am glad to be able to suggest Snap EZ – we carry them in our online store http://www.shop.dapadiapers.com and they are what we moved my son into, he is now 65 lbs and they fit great. Let us know if you have any questions about what we have in stock.
