A Week in…

We have staycation ideas for San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Europe, Chicago, Austin, and more. Each list of activities for moms and babies may include postnatal yoga, mom and baby movies, cafe suggestions, and other free activities. We hope to inspire a fun maternity leave or simply activities that help new moms enjoy their days with babies.

Spend a week in Marin

Mirielle says look ma no hands

One of Whitney’s former LeapFroggy co-workers, Meg, is an avid traveler, adjusting to becoming a parent. She writes about it at Backpack to Buggy in the hopes of encouraging more parents to travel with their own children. As her travel budget is severely constrained (aka was spent for the year) she is having a blast […]

Spend a week in Austin

Alissa and Olivia in Austin

Alissa and the readers of BabyScoopAustin compiled this great week of fun (more like 2 weeks!) for parents in Austin, TX. Whether you’re new to Austin or consider yourself an Austinite, babyscoopaustin.com has the SCOOP on everything baby! If we ever make it to Texas, I know who I want to hang out with. Thanks […]

Spend a week in Washington DC

All my in-laws live in Washington DC now. They went from being spread out in NYC and Boston to congregating in one city. If I can survive the travel, I’ll test drive this fun sounding week of activities in our nation’s capitol. Local DC Mamas, do these sound like fun to you? Let us know […]

Spend a week in Milan

Sending out a huge Grazie to Michela in Milan for rounding out our wonderful set of activities by the moms from BabyccinoBlog. Michela kept telling us how UN-kid friendly Milan is, but she managed to come up with a fun array of activities for moms, babies, and young children. We’re all in favor of mama […]

Spend a week in Paris

coco au parc

When we started the “week in” section of our site, it was an attempt to not be so Berkeley-focused. If you’re not our neighbors, there are still a ton of great options that are better than wiping someone’s tushy, right? We’re so happy to share another one in Europe — where neither of us has […]

Spend a week in San Diego

Spend a week in London

Swinging London

We recently “met” Courtney from Babyccino — an excellent blog in which moms in 4 European cities hold an online conversation about life, kids, and style. She is an American from Seattle living in London with her husband and 2 lively sons, Easton and baby Quin (near the same ages as mine!). She shares some […]

Spend a week in Portland

Amanda and Baby Willa

My friend Amanda lives with her husband and son and daughter in Portland, so she’s done this maternity leave thing twice. Once with Jed, and now that he’s in preschool, with baby Willa. She’s done us the favor of laying out a plan for the week that offers a rainy day option for each day, […]
