Re: NV/Balham/Hyde farm - quietest streets. Advice needed

We moved from Clapham old Town to the Hyde Farm area 5 years ago and how quiet the area is was something that really surprised us when we first moved in! There’s no noise from the trains, the planes are barely noticeable and there’s very little “through traffic” so car noise isn’t a problem unless y...

Uppababy Vista as a double - any good?

I have an Uppbaby Vista 2017 and currently use it just with my 2 year old in the toddler seat in the “world facing” position. I’m due with my second baby soon and want to use it with the bassinet for the baby in the lower position and my toddler in her seat still in the outward facing position but I...

Hi Karolina,

Do you have availability for 3-4 hours in Balham? Ideally it would be weekly on a Wednesday or a Thursday.

Re: Bike recommendations

I'd be interested in this too. I currently cycle with my toddler to nursery and back and have a really cheap, crappy and heavy bike which I need to replace before winter sets in as I don't trust it to get through any sort of challenging weather. One thing I would say about the Bobbin and Duchess bik...

Re: Woman suffers six puncture wounds as she is mauled by fox while sleeping in bed at her London home

Normally I would be firmly on the “protect the fox” side of the fence but last night at about 3AM we heard noises in our spare bedroom. We thought it was our cat playing with something but went in and discovered a fox cub playing with our laundry in there! We have a 15 month old who was asleep just ...

Re: Sofa recommendations

I recently took delivery of a sofa from Loaf and after much wrangling with their customer service department, I’ve just had it taken back and refunded. It was so saggy when it turned up it looked like it was 10 tears old, not brand new. To replace it I’ve bought a similar one from and the q...

Re: Abbeville Road Baby and Children's clothes shop

Yes! And please do compete with Jojo’s - it’s all we’ve got in Balham and it’s not great at all. I’ve recently had a baby and buying her (or presents for others) locally is impossible - my mum friends and I are desperate for somewhere that will compete with Jojo’s. What we need is somewhere that sel...

Re: Friend drinking and smoking whilst pregnant

I would buy yourself a copy of the excellent book 'Expexting Better' It was written by a Harvard professor who was sick to death of being told 'you should eat/drink this' but not a single person, including doctors, be able to quantify the risk. She set out to find the source studies used for the ad...

Re: Giving up buying BTC - What about Balham?

Balham rough?!!! That made me laugh out loud, that's hilarious! You'd have to have lived a pretty sheltered life to consider Balham rough. Ok, so the High Street isn't packed to the gills with Gails Bakeries and suchlike but as a result it is a whole lot more useful, and cheaper, on a day-to-day bas...

Re: Antenatal courses - Lulubaby, Bump & Baby or NCT?

Hello, Thought I'd better post an update as I started the thread! I'm 36 weeks now and have just finished the Bump & Baby classes. They were really good and we've met a great group of people. The course covered everything we were hoping for - labour, birth, breastfeeding, the first couple of weeks w...
