There are several Babies Bumps and Toddlers groups based around Edinburgh and the Lothians.  If you are expecting multiples it is well worth popping along to your nearest group and chatting to the those who already have twins or more, all the groups are very happy to welcome new multiple families. It is also a chance to see which pushchairs are the easiest to handle!

Typically snacks and beverages are available, and toys for children.  We ask for a small charge of charge £2 per family (with membership) and £3 (without membership), to cover costs.

Marchmont BBT

When: 
Tuesdays 10-12
Where: 
Marchmont St Giles Church
Coordinating role: 

Join us at our newly established Marchmont BBT group. We meet in the Butterflies cafe at Marchmont St Giles church every Tuesday morning (10-12). Currently we meet in the cafe and everyone just buys their own drinks, but if there are lots of regulars we may move into one of their private rooms for more space. The cafe is great for kids with a good toddler play area and lots of high chairs. There is pay-and-display parking across the road.

Midlothian

When: 
Monday's 1000-1200 (noon)
Where: 
Glencorse Centre

We warmly welcome parents and carers (and parents to be!) of multiples, and their siblings. As of September 2017 we are now meeting at Glencorse Centre.

Feel free to drop in any time between 10 and 12 noon.  If you would like a hand in, drop us an e-mail to let us know you are coming and we’ll arrange for one of us to come out and help you.

We meet in a lovely big hall in Joppa (just outside of Portobello) with lots of toys for all sorts of ages. We have ride on's, play kitchens, big garage, separate baby area and a tonne of books. We bring out a different selection of toys each week so your multiples will never get bored!! We'll provide buckets of tea and coffee (who doesn't nee their caffeine fix on a Monday morning!) plus something sweet. Snacks and juice are also provided for the little ones. Come and have an ogle at some buggies, moan about your kids sleep or shout from the rooftops that they are finally potty trained.
