    We are ok with Car Travel. There is a good cafe called Breathing Space at Indro we could start with

    I live near Indro (Taringa) but am willing to travel anywhere really if you are happy to have me along. I am also fine with a roster too but my place is tiny (one bedroom, a combined living room/kitchen and bathroom) so I guess it depends how many people I would need to squeeze in here!

    Sounds good to me, Indro is about 25mins.
    Would be great to have you along Jitterbug!
    Anyone else?

    We can combine it with our visits to Uncle Beau so suits us about 40 mins but she does not mind

    Heaven I haven't seen Beau in ages either, LOL. I am at Taringa too, and Breathing Space Cafe @ Indooroopilly is pretty good. My place won't be much good to us, it is a small unit too.

    This is kinda selfish because it suits me, but how about a regular coffee date at Breathing Space? I know there is a similar style cafe on the northside (it has just escaped my memory) so perhaps we could rotate cafe's?

    Indro would be fine for me regularly, it's not too far.

    Hi ladies,

    We're in Yeronga and would love to tag along, i was thinking yesterday that i have to get serious about finding a mothers group so this would be perfect. I think alternating cafes is a good idea, we're in a townhouse so don't have a huge amount of space but it would be enough to have everyone over if we do a roster.

    How about coffee this friday afternoon 2pm, at Breathing Space Cafe? While we are all together we can think about other suitable cafe's / houses etc?

    Would love to meet you all .

    Oh I just had another thought (actually, thanks AnnaChas for this thought) but some of the cinemas have 'babes in arms' showings on thursday mornings. Every now and then we could get out and see a film . It doesn't really matter if our bubs cry because that is what this session is for. It might be too expensive for everyone to do every week, but every now and then would be nice.

    EDIT: Here is the website for the Breathing Space Cafe http://www.breathingspacecafe.com.au/
    It is on the St Lucia side of the Indooroopilly train station, and there is plenty of parking.

    Hi Girls, Just wanted to jump in and add my 2c
    I joined a mg through the local child health and even though the area isnt the best the mums were lovely and they have a "specialist" in different fields come each week for 6 weeks(dietician, dental, speech therapist) so even if you think it might not be great id still reccomend trying it as the worse thing that could happen is you dont enjoy it and dont go back.
    Also we now meet up on our own(6 weeks have ended)if anyone is keen we are on southside near logan

    Count me in too if that's ok! Friday sounds great and so do all the other ideas!

    I know that there is also a baby/child friendly cafe at Newmarket if a change of venue and sides of town is needed. Unfortunately, our place is too small and parking is a bit of a hassle as well as we are in the city. Am willing to travel though!

    Oh, just a thought - do you think that a table booking might be needed for Friday?
