I’m all for moms looking and feeling fashionable, and for retaining their sense of style. I don’t think that having a baby means we should all resort to conservative button-ups, knee-length skirts, and yoga pants.

Not even a little bit.

But — if we’re being honest — there are just certain things that new moms can’t wear anymore. At least not in the middle of mommy-ing.

Here are 10 things that are difficult for moms to wear. Do you agree?:

    Unless you can balance on two 6-inch stilettos while carrying a 15-pound baby in a 9-pound car seat, with a 10-pound diaper bag slung over one shoulder and a breast pump over the other, all while digging out your car keys and shuffling across a parking lot.
