Use Google Maps as a baby/kid resource

From Blogging Baby: Stefania Butler discovered that Google Maps helps her find kid-related businesses in her neighborhood (and in anyone else's for that matter). I tried it myself -- I typed "baby" and "children" into the search field -- and found a number of clothing and furniture stores, child care establishments, and other family-friendly businesses in the 'hood (including a high-end lingerie shop...definitely conducive to, um, friendliness). Try it yourself!

Google Maps is a fine resource for mapping. For straight up Yellow Pages action, I depend on switchboard.com to locate the nearest X or Y or Z. They even list by distance as well as by the alphabet, and they list business names as well as business keywords.
