Hi all,
We are moving to SH in 2 weeks time. Very excited and hope to see you all soon. We have a 5 months baby.
What advise would you give us for place to live (we are living in an expat area in HK-We are british) that is convenient and child friendly? Our budget is 15000RMB but can increase if necessary. I'm very concern that we won't have an outdoor space in SH. Where do you all lie at the moment.
I want a place where I can easily pop in with my baby to buy food and all without having to use a taxi all the time. Also place close by to an intenational baby hospital. My hubby is willing to travel by MRT to work in
People Square as long aswe have a good place to live.
Do you give your baby any vaccine appart from the usual standard ones?
Any playgroups for his age?
Anything that we should beware of or prepare or take with us?
any tips will be much appreciated.

Welcome!

No tips for you but you can try searching in finding your tribe.

Welcome! I second the suggestion of looking in Finding Your Tribe. Have you Googled for ex-pat communities in Shanghai?

Hey adadhc, we're currently living in Wuhan, China. We're about to move to Shanghai in two weeks time as well. There is a Yahoo group called shanghaimammas and I highly recommend joining. They will have all the answers to your questions and more.
