I'd be up for it if it's in a central area (I'm in Sandy Hill).

still nauseated but am finally getting breaks here and there from it so am open to walking out your way to the park during the week sometime (my work sched is still evenings and most weekends). mid-late morning is good for us. maybe even sometime next week - a long walk would probably do me good.

Hey, star*mora! Glad you're feeling better.
Brewer Park would be great but would you rather meet in the middle? Any day next week except Wednesday would be great for me.
Any other mamas keen?

i don't mind the walk, i could drive but it's only about a 35-40min walk. i think thursday is looking like a comfortable day weatherwise - showing at about 16 degrees so far. if the weather holds what would you think of meeting around 11am (that way it shouldn't be too cool out)?

it would be good to get out and brewer park would be a lot of fun for callum at this stage. he hasn't been to that park in some time now.

Sounds great, star*mora!
It's official – meet-up 11 a.m. Thursday at the Brewer Park picnic tables.
I hope lots of other mamas can make it...

Hi, I also live in Ottawa near downtown. I work during the day and my husband is at home, so if anyone is up for meeting on a weekend I would be able to come to that. Or I can see if my husband wants to meet during the week, but he brings Rowan to meet me at lunch hour so he's pretty busy!

Hello mamas! I'm actually popping into your tribe from Vancouver (although I'm originally from Ottawa). My little brother and his partner who are in Ottawa just had a baby and are in desperate need of a co-sleeper. They quickly learned that their little girl doesn't like to sleep all alone in her crib . So, they've been taking turn sitting up with her throughout the night, which is sweet but far too tiring for them.

So, I am wondering if any of you know of anyone in the Ottawa area who is looking to sell their co-sleeper.

I've sent them instructions on how to sidecar their crib, but they're too concerned about the gap and they only have a double mattress so there's not much room to actually co-sleep.

Thank you so much!!!!

Hey, Malva! I'm so glad you may be able to come after all.
The picnic tables are under a shelter right in the middle of the playground area. Hope to see you there... The #7 bus stops nearby or there's parking on the Bronson side of the park by the soccer fields.

Sorry we missed you today! We had to go in for a last-minute ultrasound...my MW thought that our baby was breech, so we needed to see the baby's position to be sure. I've been working hard on turning this little one and it looks like it worked! We are definitely head-down! :

I hope we can make the next one!
