Gobaby - London App for Parents



Updated: Gobaby was recently updated to include a new winter home screen and locations of Boots Pharmacies across London. Perfect if you need to pop in for winter cold reinforcements or any other baby-related needs! (If you have the Gobaby app already, you just need to update it in your app store.)

Gobaby App features more than 1,000 nearby babychanging spots including cafes, libraries, museums, restaurants and retailers. Available on iPhone and Android.

Is travelling in London with children overwhelming for you? In the last eight years, I've figured out what works best for me when I have a pushchair in tow - walk when possible, take the bus for short journeys, and bring my lightest pushchair if I'm on the tube. Those are a few of my tips, but I've also had some pretty frustrating experiences too...

London mum Jen also knows what it's like to experience stressful days in the city with a young child and pram. To eliminate some of the stress for other parents, she created Gobaby, an iPhone app that details pram accessible underground stations and baby-changing spots throughout London.

With the Gobaby app, you can plan your London travel around what works for you and your baby. And when nappy-changing situations arise (and they will!), Gobaby will search across restaurants, libraries, shops and museums for the nearest changing spots.

I downloaded the app last week and I was really impressed with the design and how easy it was to use. Some features:

  • The app will immediately detect your location and list the local travel options and changing facilities.
  • You'll know what to expect at each tube station — stairs, escalators, lifts.
  • You can review the changing facilities on the app (helpful for other parents).
  • Restaurants detailed also share if children's menus and highchairs are available.
  • Updated with Boots locations so you can pop in for baby-related reinforcements! (nappies, wipes, medicine, food, etc) - NEW!

Gobaby is available on the App Store for £1.49.
