I have an interview just outside London in a couple of weeks. Dd will be three months and is ebf. I live in Scotland. I was going to take her with me. I know the journey will be stressful as will getting around London but feel dd needs to be with me.

Dh wants me to leave her with him and give her expressed milk. He is worried about her being dragged around London.

Will it be too awful on the train/getting round London with a baby in a pram?

Friend had a better plan which was to leave dd in her flat with her while I nip off to interview so I only need to do train to London then get to her flat. Much less stress!

Ha ha, I love the idea you can't use a buggy in London!!
(although it's true that it is not a good idea to try a buggy on a tube at rush hour).
Buses are the best for buggies but the tube is ok as well and people will often help you up and down stairs.
I have taken my buggy on several trains but it can be difficult getting it in so useful if buggy folds up. Otherwise you can sit in the coridoor bits near the doors where there are usually fold-down seats.
If you can afford it taxis are fantastic because you don't need a car seat, you can just wheel the buggy in and but the brake on.
