3Most B&B's do not allow small children for obvious reason, and NYC does not have a great B&B selection, its a major city.
You fail to mention price, how are we to offer advice?
Did you look at Expedia, Priceline or Trip Advisor?
I would think access to where you are going would be most important, so any io the major hotels in Midtown are usually fine for most. NYC is one the most expensive lodging cities in the world. What research have you done? What time of year are you going?
$250 is the average price of a decent room, plus tax.

Please do not support illegal activities.
I don't know how feasible it would be to rent only a room with a baby, so consider NJ if you want to go this route.
Also see FAQs 241, 247 and 259.
I just recently stayed at the Four Points in Long Island City. Rates usually under $100, but a few blocks to a subway station. The Holiday Inn is closer to the subway, but don't know their rates.

8"Be aware that full apartment rentals less than 30 days are illegal in NYC"
I consider this sentence to be much less than full disclosure.
In New York City, as I understand it, unless the property is exempt or outside the ordinance for some reason it is a housing code violation for the owner or lessee to rent a unit or part of a unit to someone else for less than 30 days, unless they also live in the same unit. This rule is not aimed at or enforced against tourists or travelers and is barely enforced against owners. It is NOT illegal for a traveler or tourist to rent one of these places. There are many legal places to rent in NYC, they just have to fall outside the law and/or fall into the proper code classification. Airbnb has thousands of units listed on their site for NYC, many of them for around $100/night.
