It's always difficult to find the Montessori materials you are looking for in a store near you. So many Montessori infant materials are handmade, finding them is often dependant on finding an Assistant to Infancy trained guide near you.
Many materials can be DIYed so if you are interested, have a search or let me know, I might be able to find a tutorial for you. In a lot of locations, Etsy is a good place to start. As always, do your research and know what you are looking for, not all times listed as 'Montessori' are recommended or fit within the philosophy. If you are unsure about a piece of material, contact the store first and ask some questions, hopefully, you will get someone trained in Montessori who can offer some advice. I know a lot of store owners and they are fabulous people who are very generous with their time and Montessori knowledge! A lot of these stores stock Montessori materials for toddlers and older children too.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask. While living in the UK I've ordered from many stores throughout Europe and I've never had a problem, so far shipping from around the EU has only been a few days to a week, in some cases my orders have arrived in two days and within the EU there is no customs tax.
While living in Australia I have ordered from Canada, USA and New Zealand, delivery costs can vary and placing a large order with friends can help. Shipping from the US is often 3-4 weeks. This is not an exhaustive list, there are a few materials, a few bits and pieces you can find elsewhere and of course, there may be stores that I don't know about, it's very hard for me to research non-English speaking stores. There are also many, many toy stores, school supply stores and other variety stores that stock materials suitable for a Montessori home.
