Our friend Heather over at the US Japan Fam blog writes about cronuts, ramen burgers and other food fads.

This post from Mommy Shorts about toddlers and poop totally made our day.

Our friend Karolina over at Nourish Your Life wrote a great post about her (mostly) vegan diet during her second pregnancy (congratulations)!

Excited to try out new site Kid & Coe, which is a vacation rental site, kinda like Air B’n’B for families. Genius.

Happy Fourth of July!


Happy Fourth of July, via
Scene from last summer’s fourth with Baby J.

Brunchers! Hope you’re celebrating the long weekend with your families.

The Brunch With My Baby team is laying low and chillaxing in the city  (and nearby beaches) this year.

Here are some suggestions on some fun ways to enjoy the weekend in the city:


What’s better on a hot Fourth of July weekend than POPS? Check out this selection all over the city.

Enjoy using the free BBQs at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 5. Get there early to fight for your table!

Check out a few New York icons you might not have already been to with the kids.

Step back in time to visit the dinosaurs at the Bronx Zoo.

Take it easy with a cone of Ample Hills ice cream at Brooklyn’s Pier 5 playground.

How about a trip to Coney Island to see the Nathan’s Famous 4th of July hotdog eating contest? It’s on at 10:30 this morning, so if you miss the big contest, be sure to grab a dog and perhaps head on over to the newly-re-opened New York Aquarium.

Take the shuttle to Rockaway Beach and grab the best fish taco around at Rockaway Taco on 95th St.


Have a blast. And speaking of . . . Hope you get a good view of the fireworks!

Friday Link Love: Father's Day Ideas


Father’s Day weekend is upon us!

If you haven’t made plans yet, here are some ideas:

There’s still time to get tickets to the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island (if it doesn’t get rained out!)

A gourmet picnic in Central Park.

Love soccer and music? Check out the Brooklyn Bridge Cup & Block Party (June 15 & 16)

The forecast is not awesome. What about lunch at Chelsea Markets, then some sporty time at Chelsea Piers?

Love Lego? Check out The Art of the Brick at the Discovery Museum at Times Square.

Ignore the rain with some indoor climbing—for dads and kids over three.

Wander down to Red Hook (our new fave weekend location) and stuff yourself at Brooklyn Crab.

Build a robot together! The Brooklyn Robot Foundry has open play for kids aged five – nine and their families.

Father’s Day discount at the Intrepid Museum. Here is the coupon you need for discounted entry!

Enjoy kid-friendly Mexican and Cuban food with the Baby Breakfast and Kid’s Corner at Habana Outpost, Fort Greene.

Learn to make pizza together at Taste Buds Kitchen! Suitable for kids (2 – 8) and their families.

Happy Friday! Have a Beautiful Brunchy Weekend!


Cheese, being sassy on a spring day.

Hope you’re planning to enjoy the beautiful spring weather that looks like it’s FINALLY here to stay. (We know Cheese is ready for more ice-cream outings.)

The Brunch With My Baby team is looking forward to relaxing with our families – and checking out more kid-friendly restaurants to review. Alexis plans on taking Baby J and Big J to try someplace new in the city (that will be her reward for driving out to New Jersey today AND Saturday to visit friends and family). Christine and Co. might just be forced to sample more treats from Smorgasburg. For work, you know.

We hope you enjoy your weekend and have a chance to enjoy some of the many delicious places and sights NYC has to offer. Here are a few fun links from around the web to help inspire you:


Brooklynites, check out these great dishes, and where to eat them.

Want suggestions for fun weekend outings?

This great new website for stylish new mamas and mamas-to-be is a must-see.

Bare Burger just opened in Cobble Hill! Ahhhhh!

Healthy eating for your family is made easy with these wholesome, nourishing meal plans.


Have a good one!
