Why we are proud to be a Smart Bottoms retailer!

  • "Another one of our retailers from the awesome country located just north of the US, meet Gentle Nest!" ~Smart Bottoms
  • Owner: Melanie Lucas
    • Location: Manotick (Ottawa), Ontario, Canada
  • How long have you been a Smart Bottoms' retailer?
    • Since 2016
  • What made you want to open up your own shop?
    • For as long as I can remember I have been into all things natural. My mother used to say I would live in the mountains when I grew up. It turns out I became a neonatal intensive care nurse. Seeing life so miraculous and fragile deepened my appreciation for protecting ourselves and our children with gentle products. With my own children, this desire became a necessity due to a rare, life-threatening, allergy-type disease. I had already spent so much time researching and sourcing all things gentle, that it became a natural progression to place everything I believed in under one roof and call it Gentle Nest.
  • Why did you decide to carry Smart Bottoms' in your store?
    • Like Smart Bottoms, I am a strong supporter of keeping things as natural as possible and made in North America. Equally important, Smart Bottoms are adorable and they work!
  • What is your favorite Smart Bottoms' product?
    • Favourite... I love everything! I really wish I had known about Born Smarts right from day one with our own kids. The items we used most frequently in our house were Smart Ones, Smartfolds, Too Smart Covers, Too Smart Inserts, and Fleece Liners. Since we are out of cloth in our house I now use a Haversack as my purse! They hold everything I need to travel around with. Plus the included change pad makes an amazing seat warmer when we are at the cold skating arena and football games! We also still use the hanging wet bag to hold our kids favourite toys on their bed knobs. See... I can't choose just one favourite!
