Ah, the joys of pregnancy and motherhood. Adorable onesies, miniature booties, flowing dresses and comfy elastic waist pants. There’s something for both baby and mommy at these sweet shops across the city.
Finger In The Nose, aside from being one of the most hilariously named businesses (amirite?), is a Parisian fashion house that designs unisex children’s clothing known for its rock-and-roll edge. From denim to tees, hoodies to shades, if you dress baby in this line, chances are they’ll be more stylish than you. This Snowbird Down Onesie is a great choice for the trendy urban mom. With handy zippers at the top and on the bottom, an attached hood and sleeves that can be turned into mittens, it will keep baby toasty no matter how cold it is outside.
