I am moving to Ipanema next month with my wife and baby (6 months old). We have found a apartment on Nascimenta Silva and will be staying for seven months. I will be working, and sometimes making trips out of Rio for a few days.
I was wondering if anyone has a good knowledge of Ipanema, especially related to baby care (local peadiatrician that speaks english or french, hospital for emergency etc). Also, Ipanema is considered safe. Does this also apply for walking around in evening.
