Shopping Resources


Hi there! Thank you for visiting our little corner of the internet. Sadly, Barefoot Babies is now closed. We will miss offering you great in-person service and expertise in cloth diapering and babywearing, and our awesome selection of baby & children’s gifts.

We would love it if you would support other local, small businesses instead - boost your local economy, support real people in your own community, reduce your carbon footprint AND find great quality, interesting items! win-win-win!

So, we made a list to get you started. Maybe you came here looking for one of our more popular items? Well, the list below can tell you where else in Hamilton you can find many of them (as of August 2023; please call ahead and check in with these stores for their current available stock!)

Cloth Diapers: It’s hard to find these sold locally anymore, and online stores don’t offer the hands-on help and expertise that is needed to support you on your journey. If you are interested in cloth diapering, or are using them already and have questions, we highly recommend you connect with The Cloth Consultant, Jen — you may have met her at Barefoot Babies in her 12 years on the staff team!

Baby Carriers: It’s getting harder to find hands-on help with babywearing, but it really is much better with a village supporting you!
