Well, cross Papua New Guinea off you list as a place to travel with a baby.

Lots of the places you mention would be very nice, but tell us what time of year you plan to travel. SInce you want to go to a beach, you probably don't want to be there during the monsoons.

At most places, you can choose to stay somewhere that lots of young people are partying or at a quieter, more luxe place. Bali for instance, has it's partying areas, like Kuta and quieter areas. Likewise Thailand. So it will be important to choose where you stay based on your changed interests for you vacation.

August is a beautiful time of year in Bali. Most people like to divide their time in Bali between a beach location and inland near Ubud. Sanur is a nice location for your beach time. Read some of the posts here abut Bali for more information.

If you want to go to Thailand at that time of the year, opt for Koh Samui or Hua Hin.

I like this weather site: www.weatherbase.com for looking at weather patterns in various places.

Another option to consider is the Philippines.

It is easy to write off PNG but in fact some nice beaches there. I doubt luxury hotels. Port Moresby not so safe but if you'll be only at the airport for onward flight to Madang,eg, then acceptable. Time consuming and expensive to get to nice places in PNG, only air travel possible. Cannot recommend road travel, except close to towns, as too many highway robbers, and worse, lurking. Hospitals etc too maybe rather primitive. I think it's a pity PNG has fallen to low levels. All of tropics hot and sweaty all the time, at least, along the coastlines. Yea, ok, i would not take my baby to PNG either.
