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 Ross Valley, CA

My friend of a friend, Heather Hogan, moved to the Ross Valley area last year, just in time to spend her second rookie year in the beautiful, family-friendly cluster of towns located 40 minutes north of San Francisco. Her first daughter is in Kindergarten and her second is 11 months old. Heather rounded up activities […]

Mirielle says look ma no hands

One of Whitney’s former LeapFroggy co-workers, Meg, is an avid traveler, adjusting to becoming a parent.

Alissa and Olivia in Austin

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 […]

Things to do in Paris with babies

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 […]

Things to do in Amsterdam with babies

Pim and Sara in Amsterdam

Last month, we were very lucky to get Courtney from Babyccino to write up a week in London. Now, I’m excited to tell you that we have another fun European city to explore: Amsterdam! Esther has two little ones almost the exact ages as my two… now if we could just schedule a playdate. She’s […]

Things to do in London with babies

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 […]
