Visiting London this weekend - what baby/maternity shops should I visit?

I'm 23 weeks pregnant this week and will be taking a trip to London this weekend, an early birthday present from my mum as I really wanted to have a relaxed shopping/cafe/theatre weekend before I get too big and uncomfortable to enjoy it! 😅

There aren't too many exciting baby clothes shops where I live, and certainly no places that sell maternity clothes (beyond Topshop and H&M, but I'm not a fan...), so I'm definitely on the lookout for those. Are there any must-visit places in London you can recommend? I'm traveling light, so I'm only looking for clothes and small things.

All I know is that I am definitely stopping by a JoJo Maman Bebé for their Elmer collection (I know they're not London-exclusive, but there isn't one by me back home).

I know this doesn't help your actual question, but don't discount going to the theatre later on in pregnancy! I went to the theatre when I was 38 weeks pregnant- although with strict instructions to bail if I felt any sort of twinges so I didn't actually give birth in London!

Go to the nicer residential areas and hit the charity shops Grin

Oh and definetly visit Liberty. Its a stunning shop just to be in, but I'd treat myself to a classic liberty print baby bib or something.

That is an excellent suggestion! I didn't think the charity shops were worth much the last time I was in London, but perhaps I just didn't go to the right places :)
