How do you get hold of your own ‘Baby on Board’ badge? Despite the name of this blog, I never actually had a badge when I was pregnant last time. And I always assumed you just needed to ask at a London tube or overground ticket office and they’d dish you one out…but it turns out that’s not that case.
You actually need to contact TFL and they will post out a ‘Baby on Board’ badge to you. This is why the badge in my pregnancy announcement actually belongs to my friend Emily, as my own only arrived a few days later.
So here’s how you get hold of one:
- Send an email to email@example.com and include your name and address
- And ta-da! It should turn up a few days later (mine took about three, which is pretty speedy).
Despite having my own now, I still don’t think I’d wear it – would you? Here’s what some London mums told me about their Baby on Board badge experiences last year.
And if you live in London here’s some tips on getting around public transport in London with a pram, for when your baby arrives.
