We're mums. Our children are at school and nursery now but we remember when they were very little how important it is to have a rest when you're 24/7 responsible for a baby or toddler. We started Walk-a-bye Baby to help out mums and dads because we know that little ones tend to enjoy fresh air in a pram or buggy, and this can be the perfect opportunity for the parent to have a break.We have experience caring for children and have PVGs, insurance and first aid training. Find out more at 'Intros'.
If there's a route you would like us to take, we'll go with that. If you don't mind where we walk, we'll suggest a route. We will be sensible and safe when out walking and if you have any areas or situations you want us to avoid, we're fine with that. And if you want us to nip into the chemist or corner shop for some supplies then that's fine too.
Where do we start? Maybe because you're exhausted and you just need a rest. Or how would you like to go for a hair appointment and not have to worry about getting a baby to sleep next to you in the salon? We can meet you at the hairdresser and take your baby for a walk from there. Colicky baby soothed by walks? Let us be the ones to push the buggy for a change. Need to get a few chores or some work done? It's amazing how much you can get done in an hour. The list is endless.
Nope! You can use the service as a one-off or a regular appointment.
Not a problem, and we'll take this into account when we plan the route if we need extra pavement space! Our prices are based on one child so please get in touch for a quote.
Unless the pavements are unsafe due to ice, snow or flooding (ie Weather Warning time...), then we'll be there. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
You can pay by bank transfer before the walk or with cash on the day.
Roughly speaking, we cover south and west Edinburgh: Newington, Marchmont, Blackford, Morningside, Polwarth, Merchiston, Bruntsfield, Craiglockhart, Fairmilehead, Colinton, Balerno, Currie, Juniper Green, Corstorphine, Cramond and Blackhall. If you're unsure if we cover your area, please get in touch. If you're outwith south or west Edinburgh, we can still help but there may be an additional cost to cover travel time.
Where the pick-up point is in an area with parking charges, the cost for parking will be added to your bill. However, if you purchase a package or buggy walk pass then parking charges are included.
