I just got funding to travel to St. Louis to do an oral history project. Yay! Where should I stay and how should I travel? And what should my husband/infant do during the day?

I finally got the funding for a trip to St. Louis to do a project interviewing subjects for an oral history project. I was planning on traveling alone, but I have a five-month-old infant I can't bear to leave behind (esp. since still breastfeeding), so my husband and I are talking about all three of us going!
The question is: where should we stay, how should we travel, and how can my husband keep occupied? My interviews will be in the not-so-gentrifying parts of St. Louis (Wells/Goodfellow and Hamilton Heights, for example).
I am willing to rent a car, but would much prefer to take public transportation -- is that feasible, and safe?
And is there a neighborhood where my husband and infant could spend some time happily (cafes? maybe a library or park?) that would still be convenient for me? Anything else, safety-wise, I should know about St. Louis?
