How Do You Measure a Year (With Apologies to Fans of “Rent”)?

In numbers
Our very first post — a review of our favorite kid-friendly restaurant, Balthazar — went live on this day last year, making us the ripe old age of one. Since that first review, we have written nearly 300 posts, have eaten at A LOT of restaurants and written over 200 Restaurant Reviews from Manhattan to Brooklyn, and Sydney to Singapore. Don’t judge us. It was for the kids! They were we were really hungry.

In people
Our first interview for the Guest Brunchers section of the site was with the lovely and super business savvy aden + anais CEO Reagan Moya-Jones, about her favorite places to eat with her kids in the city. Since then, we have had the opportunity to meet and get to know 21 entrepreneurs in the world of food, kids, and fashion. Some highlights have included Chef Dominique Ansel and Rosie Pope.

In cool stuff
We are always looking for products that are perfect for urban parents and that make towing a child around the city a little easier. Since the site’s launch, we have reviewed and offered our readers high value Giveaways, from a HUGE case of Chobani Champions yogurt, a whole line of new products from aden + anais, to a Britax carrier and even a Stokke stroller!

In experiences
In the past year, our kids have grown from easy-to-tote-around infants to rough and tumble toddlers; which means that we have experienced the best and worst of dining out. We’ve taken all of our experiences and turned them into nearly 10 Survival Guides, to help you navigate a meal out — or even an entire day out — with a baby or toddler with as much grace as possible.

To our readers who have been with us from those very early days (thanks mum and dad!) and all those sleepless nights, we thank you for continuing to read about our adventures and supporting our brunching journey through New York, Sydney and Singapore. To our new readers, we hope this site gives you the courage to pack up Baby, put on some cute but walkable shoes, and take the train to one of your favorite restaurants from before you became a parent. It won’t be the same as it was before, and it probably will be a lot messier, but we promise, it will be worth it. And don’t forget to order wine 🙂

Introducing Brunch With My Baby Singapore!

Brunchers, we have some super-exciting news today. Brunch With My Baby is on the move! We’re now bringing parents the most delicious places to eat in New York, Sydney AND, our newest destination, Singapore!

Singapore boasts many food aficionados and people who hail from a culture of we-love-to-eat. It’s not uncommon there to plan where you’ll have your dinner, whilst you’re  still eating your lunch. The Singapore food scene encompasses everything from cheap and cheerful hawker food, all the way to Michelin star restaurants. And Singaporean foodies love that and everything in between.

Please give a warm welcome to our new Singapore Editor, Beverly Burgess, the blogger behind the popular website, Beverly’s Adventures. Her biggest loves include family, food and fashion (her Balenciaga collection makes us drool!).

Having lived in Australia, China and Singapore, Beverly entered an alternate universe at warp speed when she went from online marketing manager for Microsoft and then eBay to becoming a mother of two kids under the age of two.

Her career is now replaced with the privilege of being a full-time mum, but the urge to try out new restaurants, shop, and socialise still remains (albeit with two obliging children in tow). And she wouldn’t have it any other way.

It’s not easy handling the dreaded “two under two” kids, as many other mums in similar situations will agree. Sometimes, the only way to maintain your sanity is to simply get out of the house!

Luckily for Beverly, Singapore is all about one of her favorite things — food! And luckily for us, Beverly is now sharing her favorite places there to eat, play and explore, with our readers.

Please hop on over to check out the best of kid-friendly Singapore, and say “hi” to Beverly and her family.

Beverly Burgess, Singapore Editori,

Happy Father’s Day to all of the wonderful dads out there!

The Brunch With My Baby team are thankful for our own fathers today. In honor of our own awesome dads, we wanted to share some of our favourite memories from our childhoods.

Daddy love flashback via
Christine and her dad

I spent a lot of my childhood dancing and performing on stage, and my dad never missed a performance. Every show, there he was, right in the front, with his giant camera capturing every jazz hand and fan kick. I really appreciated the effort he made to learn and appreciate the world of dance! He also inspired my love of photography and taught me how to use a camera—an immeasurable gift given that photography is one of my greatest loves today. 

Father's Day love -
Alexis and her dad

My memories with my dad all have to do with creativity. I remember him making a giant maze of cardboard box houses in our basement for my brother and I, writing songs together, and singing them with him accompanying me on guitar, and talking about writing and our favorite books together.

As for our own toddlers’ fathers, here is what’s on today’s menu:

Baby J’s dad will be spending Father’s Day the way he loves best: With an early morning trip to Russ & Daughters where he and Baby J like to sample herring (Baby J likes to eat them whole).

Dads we love via
That way, Daddy!

Cheese will be letting her dad sleep in (hopefully!) and helping her mum pack La Patisserie croissants and Brooklyn Fare paninis for a picnic in Prospect Park (if the weather holds!).

We hope you enjoy today with your family. What do you have planned?
