Hi, a girl I met on my last mat leave got PG again the same time as me and we had our second babies a day apart. I would describe this woman as an aquaintance as we met through a baby group and only really kept in touch within the group as a whole i.e, we never went out for coffee on our own etc. However we've been in text contact through our pregnancy despite not meeting up in the 9 months.

We met up this week with our new babies and I was pretty embarrassed as she had a gift for my DS but I hadn't bought her DD anything, now I feel bad about it! We are meeting up again next week with the others from our original baby group, do you think I should buy her DD a present to give to her then or would it be a really obvious afterthought? WWYD?

I think you should leave for now to be honest as it would seem very obvious. Maybe leave it a few weeks and if you see something you think she's like for him while you are shopping then get it and say you just saw it and though of him!

Either that or buy her a big cream cake at the nmext meet up to say thankyou! I know I would have appreciated that grin
