i see that it's your first time posting here, so i'll offer a couple of pointers to help you navigate the wonderful world of Chowhound...first, it's always best to use the "Search" function before posting a query like this. many topics have been covered at least once or twice. and some (including this one) have been discussed ad nauseum.
second, you really need to provide at least *some* details/guidelines about your preferences if you want useful feedback. neighborhood/location? cuisine preferences? atmosphere? price point? reservations vs. walk-in?
i think you'll find it helpful to read this thread before continuing...
Kathryn (whose thread Pan helpfully posted a link to) is remarkably well-eaten wrt brunch in NYC and is my go-to-Chowhound on the subject. But reading that thread, alone, may not help you narrow your options down by geography (part of town) and price, if those factors are important to you. Do you have any particular preferences? Do you want something low-key and small, cafe-like in feel or would you be happier with something more white-tableclothy?
It's really nice of you to treat your mother and congrats on the new baby!
Kathryn is the expert, but, pretending she;s not around, I'll say Jane and Five Points are nice for parents, and they both take reservations.
