    Blue tongue lizards are great pets. I have had them in one of the childcare centres I worked at and several other childcare centres u know of keep them to because they are easy to care for, hardy little creatures and the kids can still touch, pet, feed them. The set up can be a bit expensive but once you have them set up you pretty much just need to give them food, water and keep their substrate clean. they eat fruit, veg, meat so you can pretty much feed them from your kitchen and they don't eat a lot. plus no fur to get all over everything.

    I was in your situation not long ago! We already have a dog but my DD wanted something she could hold and carry around. I toyed with the idea of a pet mouse but in the end I just couldn't do it! We settled on some little chicks. They are very low maintenance. We got silkies because they are very "pet" like.

    Hermit crabs are great pets for kids low maintenance & really interesting & you can get all kinds of different shells for them. DSD has 2 hermit crabs with rainbow shells & she loves them.

    Hmm. Maybe a bird of some type then? I personally hate birds and find them rather scary but just an idea. perhaps go into a pet shop and ask? Surely they would have some ideas.

    If any of your neighbours have a cat, start feeding it so that it visits more often. Very low maintenance - all the joys of a pet without any of the responsibility!

    But seriously, if you get the right breed of short-hair cat and keep it outdoors, they are pretty low maintenance. No litter tray, no baths, just let it live outside and come in sometimes when it wants to. Then the work is mainly just feeding and the occasional flea treatment. Just make sure the breed is reasonably placid and kid friendly. Of course, I would hold off if you are thinking of being pregnant again soon.

    A Siamese Fighting fish, they love blood worms which you can buy frozen in a pack and it lasts for quite a while, you can add a sprig of the water plant (name escapes me) to help with the water etc. Very low maintenance pet, though they don't have a long lifespan, typcially a year or more from memory.
