Wondering where would be best to live, preparing to have a newborn. I'll be working from home and the wife will be commuting till the baby shows up at least. Looking to spend 1500-1800 a month on rent, not live to far out, but also be close enough to the beach. We're both creative type people, so we like village-y type areas.

Any recommendations would be great.

your budget will only allow for a 1br apartment in the LA beach cities, most likely less than 1000sf. where will your wife be commuting to?

Beverly Hills. Close to the beach isn't the main priority...

Look into Miracle Mile (Wilshire Blvd/La Brea Ave), Los Feliz, Silverlake, Echo Park, Ealge Rock, Valley Village (San Fernando Valley), and Studio City (also in San Fernando Valley).

Beverly Hills is a great area. I grew up in BH, graduated from BHHS. Lived there from 92-2000 and we paid $650/mo for 1 bed and moved up to 2+2 on same street for $850/mo, we were lucky that our landlord didn't raise rent for entire 6 years we were there. Now same 2+2 costs $1800+. You may be able to find something in your price range if you're patient.
