Ask the Mums: Maternity Shopping in Mumbai « Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff

“I came across the MKB blog for the first time today and already consider it a Godsend!
My husband and I moved to Mumbai at the beginning of March and found out a month later

that I was pregnant :) . We’re delighted- obviously, and plan on having the baby in Mumbai, although I do feel at a bit of a loss as to where to find the basics I’ll be needing in the first weeks/months and what will be needed, particularly in Mumbai.
I read your post regarding the “To buy” list you came up with and be most grateful if you could share it with me. I’m currently in Dubai on a maternity shopping spree, but would like to find the bigger items, such as stroller, car seat, cot, etc. in Mumbai if possible.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best regards,
Denise”
Dear Denise,

Congratulations to you and your husband. Am really happy that you find the site useful – keep browsing through our posts for new mums and mums to be; there’s a lot of info already on with regard to trendy maternity wear, baby essentials, ante and post natal classes… and more.

There are many interesting places to buy big baby gear from in Mumbai. I did my shopping in Bandra and Juhu primarily. In Bandra

there’s Design Touch and Trios on Hill Road and for all the baby requirements (not branded variety but excellent quality and cotton) is Al Burhan / Good Luck Hoisery. We have a post on the site about the store and you can read it at: http://www.mummyknowsbest.com.previewdns.com/home/2009/6/7/young-guys-who-could-teach-a-new-mum-a-thing-or-two-about-ba.html.

In Juhu, the popular stores are Baby Bell and Green Bell, #1, Vile Parle Shopping Centre, V.M. Road, Vile Parle West. You could also go to the large Mothercare outlet at the Shoppers Stop at Dynamic Mall better known for its PVR theatre.
