Further to your story about mums with prams being turned away from cafes (The Argus, March 29), it’s beyond belief, looking at the size of buggies these days, that these mothers think it’s reasonable to allow a number of them in a small cafe.
It’s also a pain when up to three of these monster pushchairs get on a bus using valuable seating on already crowded buses.
When my children were in pushchairs, only one foldable pushchair was allowed on a bus – the rest of us waiting were left standing.
Mr Maclaren’s daughter asked her dad to help her out and he invented the Maclaren buggy. This gave us all access to the bus because it folded up like an umbrella, and we were grateful for the freedom it gave us. I believe they are still available.
Of course, we couldn’t afford to go out and meet our friends in a cafe for coffee.
We went to each other’s houses instead.
