Hi,

Saturday weather should be perfect.

Here is my suggestion:

Cross the mont blanc bridge coming out of the train station (Gare Cornavin) by foot to go on the other side of the lake. Stay in the old town across the lake where you can find all the tourist attraction, i suggest you take the mini train since you have a baby with you and later walk around for your window shopping

On Sunday, if your up for a quiet tour you can take the United Nations Office tour: http://www.unog.ch/80256EE600581D0E/...2?OpenDocument

With the Red Cross Museum just across it.

maybe someone here is updated on hotel prices but it's high season rate atm due to the fact that a lot of international conferences going on.
