Barcelona with a baby?

Hi -- We're going to Barcelona with our 4.5 month-old next week. I've been there many times and know the short/medium list of restaurants. That said, I've never been with a baby. She's pretty mellow and doesn't have special needs like a high chair or anything, but I'm still just curious: does anyone have any experience w/any place that was particularly baby-friendly (or not)? (We're skipping the Cinc Sentits-type places this time around anyway.) Has anyone ever nursed their baby in a restaurant there (wearing lovely discreet nursing clothes, of course)? Anything else I should keep in mind that I'm not thinking of?
Thank you!

  1. Someone else asked a similar question re: a pre-schooler not that long ago:

    I commented on that string that I find that no places in Spain are particularly anti-baby/child. I lived in BCN for a year and found that you'll find kids at the darnedest places...even bars...and I've only witnessed restaurant personnel being accommodating. I wouldn't worry about it much.

    As for nursing, I think it's a lot more accepted there than here. I've seen many a Spanish mom nursing in public. I could be wrong, but again i wouldn't worry about it. BCN is a very liberal city.
