Re: Virtual tutor/Nannies What are your thoughts???

Hi Carly, We have an after school nanny for our 7 year old. At the moment we are both working full time from home. Our daughters’ school provided some printed out worksheets but no structure or interaction and not enough work. We’ve managed by working out a daily timetable where our daughter has 2 h...

Re: Shaftesbury Estate

Hi, We moved to the Shaftesbury Estate 6 years ago and we love it. Our daughter attends one of the schools on the estate which she loves, we have friends with kids at the other and they're also very happy. I wouldn't say it's crime free, but nowhere in London is. There are plenty of young families h...

Re: Second hand baby bits? Is it the done thing?

Hello, I don’t have a lot to add to comments already posted here, so really just to say for most things YES, buy used! The amount of resources that go into buying UK babies clothes and equipment is pause for thought. If you care about your family’s carbon footprint and want to avoid unnecessary land...

Re: reusable nappies

Hi there, We tried reusable nappies, but struggled. We lived in a small flat at the time and just didn’t have the space for soaking them and found it very labour intensive. I’m pleased to read others here found it worked for them. What I can recommend as a back up plan, is Bambo eco friendly disposa...

Re: Private maternity recommendations

Hi, Check the small print of your policy to make sure you are covered for maternity care. I have executive level cover from AXA and exclude anything to do with maternity care, or for that matter the menopause, on the basis that neither are medical conditions. It's a policy carefully designed to avoi...

Re: Where can I do parent & child yoga?

There is a class at Union Station Yoga on Lavender Hill on Sunday mornings. It's quite gentle and involves story telling, breathing and movement. I would say it would be suitable for children aged 4-8. My daughter loves it, but it's more of a nice thing to do together than a part of my practice. I h...

Re: Excellent Painter and Decorator

Hi, I would recommend Roy Keable. We had our bathroom painted by another business recommended on Nappy Valley, and the work was fine (finishing could have been a little better), and I thought the charge was quiet high. When we came to decorate more of house I sound Roy on Which Trusted Traders. Alan...

Re: Dust mite treatment

Hi, You can do a lot to reduce dust mites in your home but it takes a lot of effort. Before you start down that track I would recommend having your child tested for allergies so you know exactly what the allergen you need to focus on is. I had to persist with my GP to get a private referral to an im...

Re: New expansion of low emissions zone could cut Wandsworth in half

If you would like to understand more about why the Mayor is proposing these changes, there was a good article in the Guardian that outlines the devastating health implications for Londoners caused by pollution. Babies and young children are particularly effected and the lung damage caused, could hav...
