A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
I've got a six week old baby boy called Theo and in the same position as you.
Are you a member of the NCT? If you are, the Bounds Green (N11) co-ordinator is trying to set-up some meet ups and activities for new mums with babies in the area. Her name is Vicky and the email address is email@example.com if you are interested in adding your name to the mailing list.
vicky has been in touch. we are on whittington road bowes park. where are you? my husband and i lived in the step before baby!
sorry for lack of caps - feeding and typing dont mix!
hope we get to meet soon x
I am on Maidstone Road, been here a year, previously lived in Fulham. Hopefully see you at a get together soon.
I haven't managed to get to the feeding and typing stage as yet!
There are a group of mums who regularly get together in Bowes Park and beyond. You can join their group called 128 Mums Group on Facebook. Lots of good tips being shared there and chance for a nice meet ups with the babes. I have 2 boys but back at work now, not loads of free time anymore ;-( but I do try!!
thanks a lot lucy!
Our little one enjoyed Movers and Shakers at Baskervilles Cafe (Palmers Green)
Also try Baby Rhyme Time (Palmers Green/New Southgate)
You might need to sign up for a block of sessions for these or similar activities but you can normally try them out first. Look up 'Pushy Mothers' if you have any energy left for exercise (you'll prob want to wait a bit...).
thanks so much stuart!
hi cathryn - it's vicky here, michelle mentioned me. congratulations on your new arrival! hope things are going well. as michelle said, just email me if you want to be included on our local mums list. btw, you don't have to be an nct member to be included on the list. i'm in the process of organising a meet up for new mums at the moment. it'll be in september, when most people are back from hols. but if you email me with where you live, maybe i can put you in touch with other mums who live nearby so you can get together sooner.
the 128 mums are also a great group - on facebook; and i can second movers and shakers classes are great, too;
all the best,
