Does anyone have any idea where I might find these in southern Ontario?
I can't seem to find them anywhere.
The lady who owns out local specialty baby store had never heard of that style of sling. Almost every style but.
TIA

Really? Never heard of it? Strange.

This place is an online store, physically located sort of by Orillia, which is not really that south but at least it's an in-province order. Their customer service and shipping are excellent.

I found Triscuits AP store to be great http://www.triscuitsapstore.com/
Based in Belleville.
I got a used Babyhawk for a great price and have been using it every day since!

There are 2 places in London that carry them as well as several WAHM in the area that make them. Where are you located so we can better direct ou to a local store?

www.evymama.ca has a ton of Mei Tais right now. http://www.evymama.ca/meitai.html . And if you go to the shop they'll give you demos if you need it.
