Fernie Clothbots

Cloth diapering is environmentally friendly, cheap, chemical free, reduces diaper rash, and most importantly, looks super cute on your baby's bum!

A lot of money can be spent on a stash of beautiful new cloth diapers only to be faced with frustration and demoralization when they don't fit properly or start leaking, sometimes leading to giving up on cloth all together.

Fernie Clothbots offers a "try it and see" cloth diaper rental package. Two days of cloth diapers, of all types, to help you figure out what best suits you and your baby. A free 101 session is included, giving you all the information you need to get started.

Try top brands like Applecheeks, Bumgenius, Motherease, and Bummies. Newborn sizes are available for tiny bums.

If you already have diapers, book a 101 session to help you get started or fix any problems you may be having.

Montane Fernie

Fernie investor and developer Parastone Developments has announced the official launch of a new master-planned community, Montane, Fernie. The first stage of construction of the 660-acre property is underway.
The first phase of Montane will consist of 20 home sites with prices starting at $138,000. Initially, the community will be comprised of up to 140 single-family homes and will include cottages, townhomes and estate properties. The launch follows the success of Parastone’s “Fernie First” campaign and the sell-out of ten peripheral home sites.
“Montane caters to an active community. Parks and greenways will be dispersed throughout individual neighbourhoods and will be within 100 metres of every home,” says Simon Howse, general manager of Parastone. “Walkability is becoming increasingly important to homebuyers. Montane residents will have direct access to Fernie’s downtown via pedestrian walking trails and bike paths.”
