I would still recommend going to the ones run by the local mid wives/ health visitors as well as you will get to know the people who will be your primary care providers as well as meeting other local mums to be and this was a great benefit afterwards as we went on lots of trips with babies and are still in touch now
I still have the double buggy. It is one of those McClaren thingies which folds up well and the kids sit side to side. Suitable for new borns and toddlers - as long as the toddler is not to fat. Have head covers, and a rain hood. I did not use it very much because the second turned out to be a real sickie so we did not go out much.
If anyone is interested do make me an offer.
I have quite a lot of clobber for kids aged up to 4, though the baby stuff has already be gone through by friends so the best stuff is gone. Happy if people would like to look round to see if there is anything there that they would like to buy, or will respond to messages. I have a lot of toys including Duplo and Little Tykes road, people, cars and waffles (eg the stuff that you can build houses with.)
