Anybody know of any actual brick-and-mortar stores you can go to to purchase NFL stuff like cloth diapers, baby carriers, etc?<br><br>
We need some new babywearing options now that DS is getting bigger, but I'd like to actually try out options before I buy this time, if possible.<br><br>
Please forgive me if this has been asked before -- new here!<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

Do you know any other AP/NFL mama's in your area? You might able to get a sling party together and have each other try on each other's slings.

Oh yeah, and for stores. There's Magic Beans in Coolodge Corner Brookline for slings and Hatched in Jamaica Plain for cloth diapers. I don't remember the exact address, though..

Thanks! I found the Boston babywearers group; I'll have to check out the stores you mentioned.<br><br>
I wish I knew AP/NFL mamas in the area! Everyone I know either has no kids or thinks I'm crazy (or both <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> ).<br><br>

Are you in Boston or in the burbs?<br><br>
There is also a greater Boston AP group and some really active LLL groups in the area.

I'm in Cambridge and have an Ergo and a wrap style sling (an Ellaroo) you could try. We could meet at a park or something.

I think I remember seeing a few slings at Stellabella in Cambridge. Magic Beans has a fabulous selection.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

If you are willing to drive the AP group meets in Stoneham and is a great group. Almost everyone has a great carrier too.<br><br><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/apiofgreaterboston/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/apiofgreaterboston/</a>

Go to Isis Maternity in Arlington - it's near Arlington Center on Mass ave, attached to Wild Child Outfitters. They stock many different kinds of slings and will give you wearing pointers.
