Hello lovely expats. I am having my first baby and we are in near lagos. I have NO IDEA what to get for the baby. She is due in 4 weeks and I feel totally unprepared. We have more than enough clothes, breast pump, crib, car seat, diapers, baby bath..I have no idea what else though. If you could help me make a list that would be great. Also, if you know what stores to go to in Lagos. We just moved here 2 weeks ago... a bit of a large transisiton. Thank you
For all those living here with kids, I just found out that when they reach 15 years old , you have to re-apply for your family allowance, they don’t tell you. They say it’s up to you to find out! How stupid is that, as if we know that, without being told! so yip i have to do this,, and you have to do this online, as I’m told,

Are you looking for support for your son or daughter who is studying Art at GCSE/AS/A level? I have found a qualified art teacher specializing in GCSE/AS and A level who is coming to the Algarve towards the end of August to support our daughter. She offers a variety of art classes to suit all needs and requirements. GCSE/AS/A2 Art & Design is a specialism of this artist and she can provide help and assistance with: • Coursework • Sketchbook Work • Final Outcomes • Examination Advice If you are interested please send me your name and email address and I will be in touch with you.

Hi there, My husband & I recently found out we are expecting our first child in January. We are very excited but a bit nervous as we simply don't know where to start when it comes to prenatal care and the procedures to having a baby here. I did have my 13 week scan back in the UK and found the service great, plus they gave me the option of a birthing pool when the time comes which really appealled to me. And no cost as its on the NHS. We however, live in Portugal and the cost (and worry) of travelling to the UK, renting an apartment over Christmas & New Year, plus travelling back with a newborn seems crazy. Can anyone please give me some sound advice and tell me about their experience of giving birth in the Algarve? Where do we start? Faro Hospital (we live in Albufeira)? Is there anywhere with a birthing pool? Is it true the Father is not allowed in the room while the child is being born?! Costs involved? After care?... etc. Many Thanks :)
Hi to all you Mums (and Dads) out there, I wanted to ask if others shared my 'problem', I have great trouble finding good quality, well priced clothes for my children who are 5 and nearly 2. I find prices are quite high and the range of shops is limited and I miss the range and sometimes, styles I had in the Uk. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks for any feedback Christine
Hi I would be really grateful of any information regarding schooling for our son who is 8 in July. We are seriously considering moving to the Albufeira area but are concerned about his schooling. For example, local versus international school, costs of international schools, ease of language barrier, school qualifications compared to UK etc etc! All info would be greatfully received and any other about living/moving there in general! Thanks in anticipation of your comments! samsamblue21
