13 Things To Do with a 0-3 Month Old Baby in London

13 Things To Do with a 0-3 Month Old Baby in London

The fourth trimester is tough to plan around - nap times are inconsistent, your baby isn't fully vaccinated, you're still getting the hang of feeding, and you might still be recovering from the birth But there are still quite a few things that you can do in and around London to fit around your (and their) comfort levels.

Go for walks

This is really the simplest and most flexible way for you to get out. Fortunately, London has a tonne of green spaces and parks that are really pram friendly. I have a few walks recommended here, and will post more as I find them or test them:

A Pram-Friendly Walk Through the Olympic Park & Village

Explore Sky Garden and St Dunstan in the East

Take your baby to the countryside without leaving London

Check out your local library

Libraries, community centres, and children's centres typically have a variety of activities to help new parents get out of the house and meet other (very tired) parents. They're a great way to find other people going through the same things as you and spend time in a genuinely baby-friendly environment.

Get out for lunch

You may not consider pubs very baby-friendly, but during the middle of a weekday they're often quite empty and quite a lot of them now try to cater to young families with baby changing facilities etc. I met up with some friends at People's Park Tavern on a Friday for lunch and we only shared the place with a couple with a dog and a very moody cat. There are also plenty of cafes in and around London who have realised that they can make quite a bit more money from the mummy/daddy crowd on a Tuesday afternoon.

7 Baby and Toddler-Friendly Pubs in London
There’s nothing better than a sunny beer garden in summer, but unfortunately having a little one can make finding the right pub a bit harder than just wandering to your local. Here are some of London’s more kid-friendly pubs, just in time for the sun. The Rosendale, Dulwich The Rosendale
10 Child-Friendly Cafes in London
Not every café is child (or parent) friendly - simple things like baby changing facilities, space for a pram, and just not wanting to disturb legions of people on their laptops can make neutral spaces difficult when you have a baby or toddler. So here’s a list of 10 cafes

Go to the cinema

This definitely wasn't something I considered before having a baby, but I'm really pleased that baby screenings exist. They're typically not that full, aren't too overstimulating for the little one, and give you a comfortable, sheltered venue where you don't feel too bad if your baby starts crying or fussing.

Check out a gallery

This may be a little more brave, but the larger art galleries in London are spaced out and quiet too, and a lot of them have family rooms that you can use for a feed and change.

Explore the Tate Modern
How much is it? Free. What age is it suitable for? Any age. Where is it? Southbank. London’s free museums and galleries are a great way to change up your daily activities and expose your little one to culture early on. The Tate Modern is very family friendly; all entrances
