What to do with baby on the Upper East Side

For those new moms who are wondering what they could do with their little bubs during the day and not go stir crazy in-doors, here are my recommendations:

1) Take a long walk to Bloomingdales on 3rd Ave between 59th and 60th (then go to the women's lounge, take a load off, feed the babe) and browse around.  Just try not to buy something every single day :-)

2) Starbucks is your friend.  Stop at any dozen locations and grab your favorite latté.  Just don't take one to go unless you have a good stroller with shocks.  I made that mistake once while using the Snap N' Go and spilled coffee all over myself every time I hit a crack in the pavement. 

3) Walk to your local park.  There are quite a few to choose from.  Obviously, Central Park for those of you closer to 5th, but Charles Schultz is lovely and you can stroll along the East River on a sunny day, then stop and watch the little doggies in the dog run.  I also like the playground on 68th and 1st where moms and nannies gather on the benches

4) I hear the Barnes and Noble on 86th is "the spot" for many moms with little ones.

5) Stroll to Planet Kids for any number of necessities you need that day.
