Nice move. I worked at Stream twice since I've been back to Belleville. I didn't really mind it but it's not the most glamorous job, listening to people complain all day.
Your new job sounds much tastier!

Not from Belleville, but from Campbellford, really close to Belleville

I live in Toronto now, though.

Can I piggyback this thread to ask for some help?
My DD is moving to the Belleville area (Trenton) next month. She is an attachment-parenting, EBF mother, and has had trouble finding any support groups or contacts in the community. There seems to be no LLL for over 100 km, no API group, no nursing mothers' groups, nothing but a support group for military mothers (which she is not.)
Anybody have some contacts for her?

mamabadger: There are fortunately several resources in this area now. There is a nursing Moms group that meets on Thursdays at the Early Years Center on MacDonald Ave at noon. There is also a babywearing group that meets (BABiC - Belleville Area Babes in Carriers) at 6pm at Organic Underground (255 Front Street, downtown Belleville) on Mondays. As well there are pockets of us who meet at various times at each others houses or at the EYC.

I am often at the nursing Moms group (still nursing both boys) and I started and facillitate the babywearing group so if she is looking for us I'll almost certainly meet her PM me if you want my contact info to pass along to her

I'm in Bloomfield, about 20 minutes from Belleville Nice to see that there are other MDC Mama's near by! I've been meaning to make it out to the nursing meetup at the Early Years Centre, but it means a drive in with a babe who hates his carseat!

I'm a WAHM to a little Bean (07/11/09).

I just realized who you are and that I actually know you! You are in fact one of the four Moms I mentioned in my previous post

It sure does! Mondays from 11:30 to 1:00.

There is usually a get together of Moms on Thursdays, location varies every week and I'm not sure where it is this week but I can try and remember to come back here and post when it is announced.

Every other week there is a babywearing group meeting as well, but the next one is August 19th.

OMG! I live in Kingston and I moved here from Fredericton last year! I have a 7 year old boy (8 in March), a 2 year old boy and a newborn baby girl.

My kids learn at home and are always looking to meet new kids if you ever come to Kingston!
