With items that are frequently out of stock (or cost an UPPAbaby Vista’s weight in gold to ship), baby retailers seem to have little love for expectant Canadian parents. But at Babylist, we love the Great White North.

Canadians can add registry items from all of these baby stores with Babylist. When you create an account, you can install the browser button (or get the app) to seamlessly add items from anywhere on the web.

We’ve put together a list of the best baby stores in Canada to help you build your registry. We asked our Canadian registrants and did some research of our own to find the best options, ranging from big online retailers to local stores you can visit to small, family-run shops. Wherever your shipping address may be, you deserve to get exactly what you want for your new little one.

National Stores

Amazon.ca

With thousands and thousands of products, you’re bound to find the items you need for your new arrival on Amazon. Stock up on essentials like diapers and nursing pads, and use Amazon’s endless customer reviews to choose from popular products. Their top sellers include important basics like Pampers Sensitive Wipes, Playtex Diaper Genie Refills, and the Baby Banana Training Toothbrush.

Babies R Us Canada

From car seats and strollers to bassinets and diaper pails, Babies ‘R Us offers an enormous selection of baby products to choose from. You can search for the major brands you want and visit some of their stores in person to test out gear. Current popular picks include the Baby Einstein Rhythm of the Reef Play Gym and Fisher-Price’s Classic Infant Trio.

Well.ca

Well.ca provides a range of choices for your registry that are focused on healthy, natural living. The online store ships across Canada and carries products from brands like the The Honest Co. and Seventh Generation. This is a great resource for some harder-to-find items for your baby and for moms, both pre- and post-partum. Check out the Angel Baby Oil from Earth Mama and this Postpartum Recovery Set from Anointment Natural Skin Care.

Wayfair

Wayfair is a top destination for anyone trying to design their perfect nursery. The store’s expansive collection of furniture options, as well as their inspiration guides, will make it easy to create your ideal space. Check out the Angel Convertible Crib by South Shore and this SwaddleMe Set by Summer Infant.

Indigo

Indigo is Canada’s leading bookstore, but it’s also a one-stop shop for many of your baby needs, from baby gear to clothes and nursery items. They also have a great selection of children’s books and toys, including both in their brick-and-mortar stores and online (they have IndigoKids experiences in over 80 of their locations throughout Canada).

Mini Way Co.

Handmade in Calgary, these beautiful outfits provide a blend of simple basics and bold, creative patterns. Starting at sizes for 6 months, the Mini Way Co. offers unisex pieces, as well as lovely bows and dresses.

Choosing what’s right for you

It’s tricky enough deciding what you need for your baby, let alone figuring out which stores will ship to you. That’s why we’ve done the work for you. With this selection of stores, we hope you’ll be able to find exactly what you need—whether that means ordering unique bodysuits from an indie shop or testing out strollers inside an actual store or ordering diapers in bulk. As we know from our founder, being from Canada is awesome and your shipping costs should reflect that!
