Raising a child in New York City is definitely a challenge, but these moms are up for it — and dressed for it. We talked to a few mothers about their personal style and approach to dressing, and how shopping for clothes has changed (or hasn't) since they became mothers. They told us all about their hopes for their children's future in this uncertain, ever-changing world, and the challenges they face as new moms in a country where there is much progress to be made in the realm of women's health and family leave.
