About Us

Need a break?

Parenting is a joy but it's also fairly exhausting! Walk-a-bye Baby is a friendly and professional child care service for young children in South and West Edinburgh, giving you some child-free time when you need it. 

How we can help

One hour buggy walk

At a time suiting you, your carer arrives and together you settle your child into the buggy. The carer then takes your child for a gentle walk round the local area, giving you a precious hour to yourself. 

Helping Hand

A carer will assist you at home as a 'mother's help'. We can play with your child while you get some things done and help with light cleaning, washing, tidying, sorting clothes, food preparation or popping to the shop or dry cleaners for you - basically ticking off the jobs that you never have time to do! If you like, we'll also take your child(ren) out for a buggy walk at a convenient time during the appointment.

Peace of Mind

Before we start, we pop round (or speak on the phone if you prefer) so you know who will be looking after your child. Carers have PVGs, first aid training and insurance and will present these documents, along with ID, at the initial visit or first walk.
