My wife and I are living in San Francisco, CA (SFO) and are going to Sydney, Australia (SYD) for a short trip (5 days), probably in October or November. I will be attending a training for only 1 day out of the 5 days.
We have a 6-month old baby, that is still breastfed and has not started eating solid food yet.
Unlike most people here, we are not "professional" traveler, and have not ventured over 40 miles radius of our house in the past 6 months. In the past 3 years, we have only been abroad twice (Italy and Hongkong).
Given that we have a 6-month old :
What's your recommendation on a good hotel or apartment, or a good area to be in? Main factors: easy to find food, not much pollution/car traffic, pedestrian-friendly (maybe with pedestrian-only squares like Europe), family friendly, safe.
Is apartment-style hotel better, since we can potentially cook simple food?
Is there an all-inclusive resort around Sydney, or should we book "Club-Level" Room for easy access to food?
What's the best, most effective way, cost efficient way to get food or water?
Should we bring a stroller? What stroller would you recommend?
Should we use baby carrier? I regularly use Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier to take my baby for a walk.
Any other tips or suggestions?
