MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hi desperate mommy's :-)

We just moved to Basel 3 weeks ago. We are from Barcelona, Spain. Have a 6 month baby boy who is driving me nuts.. Anyone interested in forming a playgroup? We used to do this in Istanbul (we lived there for 3 years due to husband's work, and now we are in Basel), we would alternate houses to host baby group. If not, even a stroll or coffee??
Is anyone in my exact same position? IS anyone yearning for some adult conversation and not just goo goo ga ga all day??

Perhaps there already is something similar and I am not aware of it, so please shed me some light and let me know where? when? :-)

Hope to hear from you all soon!!
Marta

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hola Marta,

My wife and I move to Basel in April with our young man (who is currently 8 months) and my wife is keen to make sure she does lots of activities with other mums. She created a thread on here and got a few suggestions of websites to visit:

http://www.baselchildbirthtrust.com/

And then this was suggested for courses:

www.swissmom.ch/Links,

I haven't looked at the links myself but they could be a start for you and if we keep in touch I'm sure Charlie (my wife) would want to meet up.

Her username on this forum is Tomarlie.

This has got me thinking that this forum probably needs a young mum group setting up. I wonder if one of the exerienced forumers can set that up. It can be a place to hold all this information and even organise meet ups and social events etc.

Anyway, good luck!

Hi MARTAB

My husband posted yesterday! Just thought I would say Hi. Yes we are moving to Basel end of March and I would love to meet up sor coffee, walk or something when we are in Basel. My little boy is 8 months at the moment so would love to make friends too. Perhaps we could arrange to meet once we arrive, you would be v welcome to visit us at our new place when we have one!

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hi

We can meet near Manor and take a stroll by the Rhine or meet at Barfuzerplatz near Papa Joes and go to any of the COffee shops. How about tomo afternoon at 4p.m.?

Cheers!

BTW, the AWC at CenterPoint also have breakfast meetings at 10 to 12 on Fri mornings, I am yet to go there though!

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

For those of you with a baby under 1, I would definitely recommend the Bumps and Babes group through the Basel Childbirth Trust. It's every Tuesday 11.30-1.30 and is held now (during winter) at Gymboree, which is just around the corner from the Starbucks at SBB. It is a brilliant space, and great to have the babies comfortable/playing while you can chat with other mums. I have recently started going and I love it. You can go for a couple of times to see if you want to join the BCT. For children over 1, there is a group on Thursdays from 11, and they meet at the BURG. While I haven't stayed for a session, I have visited the BURG and it is a fabulous play space. I would definitely recommend trying these groups out - its a great way to meet mums from all over the world!

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hi everyone, my name's Henny and I help co-ordinate the BCT Bumps and Babes group. As someone else said we're currently at Gymboree, which is a fantastic space, those with smaller babies (and pregnant ladies!) sit in a circle whilst those with more active babies have lots to keep them occupied. During the warmer months we will meet in parks around Basel. We have a really lovely international group, which just keeps growing bigger

My daughter is 9 months, and we're always really happy to meet up with other mummys and babies.

For any more information on the group please feel free to contact me on here or directly at bumpsandbabes@gmail.com

Best wishes

Henny

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hi there

Any of you still interested in forming a playgroup and get together to chat? I got a 6-month old baby girl and would love to get together with other english speaking moms on a regular basis!

Have a great day!

Greetz,

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hi all,

I have a 7 month old, and second the recommendation to go to Bumps and babes on a tuesday, and to kindermusik (which is just superb).

From going to these places I have met loads and loads of mums and their little ones.

Also I have a friend who is starting up a playgroup on friday afternoons - I will post the details here when I get them.

BnB is part of the Basel Childbirth Trust set up.

Google it for details. It should come up.

Thanks everyone for your responses I really appreciate it!

I'll definitely check those places out!

And as I said if any of you would like to get together for a cup of coffee and a chat or a stroll around the neighborhood just message me. I'd love to hear from you and who knows maybe form a few new friendships that way! ;O)

Re: MOMMY BABY playgroup in Basel??

Hello Everyone,
This forum is really great! We are new to Basel too, and looking to meet up with other mummies and parents. I have a 12 weeks old little girl and a 3 year old little boy (not so little anymore!).
Would also love to meet up with other mummies, for coffee, chat up, walking around, go to the park,...
If anyone is up for it, let me know!
