hey all just wondered if anyone knew anywhere i could get a cheap double buggy from, preferably side by side 1,

just i am going to start having my mates daughter, 5 months old, 2 days a week while she works and would be easier for me to have a double buggy rather than 2 singles if ya see my point,

dont want to spend to much on 1 but just dont know where to look! xxx

Ebay would be your best bet or http://www.kiddicare.com/

Please dont take offence at this but your friend would be better off using registered care as she can claim 80% of childcare costs back. Also, what would happen if you were ill and not able to look after her baby?? A registered provider has back up plans if this sort of thing happens so the parent doesnt have to use up all their leave.

Good luck

i totally see what you mean hun but she has got other people who are willing to help out 2 so if i am ill she will always have someone there to help!

also i am hoping to register as a childminder as i have been to college already and got the qualifications just need to raise the money to register! and i am not actually charging her any money anyway! this is to help her as she is really struggling at the minute!

thanks anyway hun but we have taken all this into consideration xxx

not everyone gets the money back though hun - my childcare used to cost over half my wages and we never got any help at all had to pay the lot! luckily i was getting a 50% discount for being staff but it was still half my wages that was being taken away before i saw anything!

after next year I will get no help with my child care- I will be earning over £15k. Also If my child minder is sick-tough, I have to sort out something myself (no child minder I know up here has a back up plan if they are sick) I ma lucky that I have a pal who is registered and will take Joseph.
