Hi Lizzie, I have a 9 month old boy but moving out of West Hamp soon! A few tips - thursdays at the library are fab as there are baby bounce sessions and these are a great ways to meet other mums and babes..also, la du du and quite a few of the cafes on West End Lane are baby friendly...with baby changing facilities and high chairs.. Huggle for shopping in Swiss Cottage and Del Aziz which is nearby are great for hanging out.. Plus Blue Daisy - great for baby stuff.... Have fun! It is a great area - I love it and will miss it!
Hi lizzie - I live in w Hampstead - baby is getting on for 1 now and I have an older one too - it's a great area for babies - best thing I did was join nct, as shortly after your baby is born you get invited to a coffee/tea morning at a local mums house - i went along and made a great crowd of friends with same age babies. We've been meeting up every week since and just started celebrating their first birthdays. Best thing I did! Would really recommend it - good luck!
