Treat your tot at these baby stores in Calgary

Babies are demanding little darlings. They need regular feeding, diaper changes, transportation and their own wee wardrobes. The list goes on and on. The situation can be overwhelming, but these many material needs can be addressed with the help of store staff at the Calgary’s bountiful baby boutiques.

Babes In Arms

841 1 Ave NE, Calgary, AB T2E 0C2

Bonding and attachment are the name of the game at Babes in Arms, and baby wearing plus breastfeeding are the means to these family-friendly ends. An independent shop claiming to carry the city’s largest selection of cloth diapering products and baby carriers, it also rents out slings and carriers. For new parents not familiar with wrapping, carrying and diapering, Babes also schedules budget-priced instructional sessions.

West Coast Kids

130 71 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2H 0R9

With two Calgary locations — in the deep southeast and the far northwest — this children’s store carries a load of baby gear. Find everything from strollers, diaper bags and cribs to nursing and bottle-feeding accoutrements. If you can’t find it here, then baby, it ain’t been invented yet.

Once Upon A Child

4625 Varsity Dr NW, Calgary, AB T3A 0Z9

Though it carries new kids’ and baby gear from teething necklaces to toys, Once Upon a Child on Varsity Drive Northwest focuses on lightly used kid stuff. Children can settle into the store’s enclosed play area while you purchase items or sell outgrown ones. For babies, the shop carries everything from clothing and toys to playpens and highchairs.

Ella Bella Maternity Boutique

286-10816 MacLeod Trail SE, Calgary, AB T2J 5N8

An independent baby boutique in Willow Park Village, Ella Bella stocks stylish baby clothing and accessories as well as maternity and nursing products. For youngsters up to 24 months of age, find blankets, sleepers and swaddlers plus kid carriers, diaper bags and itty bitty socks, hats and shoes.

Kacz' Kids

7290 11 St SE, Calgary, AB T2H 2S9

A Calgary kiddie company that’s something of a one-stop institution for the delightfully immature, Kacz’ Kids carries diaper accessories, nursing and feeding equipment as well as strollers and home baby-proofing gear and a whole bunch more. Find the store on 11th Street just north of Heritage Drive Southeast.

With eating local being the biggest restaurant food trend ever, home cooks have turned to the city’s butcher shops to supply cuts of Alberta beef, pork, lamb, chicken and game for their own cuisine adventures. A number of excellent meat boutiques carry a wide variety of cuts, locally produced and otherwise.
Generally following a mantra of “made, baked or grown in Alberta,” Calgary farmers’ markets transform shopping and grocery getting into an adventure. As well as specialty foods, endless kiosks and counters carry locally produced arts, crafts, clothing and accessories plus an array of natural health products.
Sweet and universally loved, chocolate is one treat we can all agree on. Lucky for you, Calgary’s chocolate boutiques carry a huge variety of premium selections.
