The Second Child
There's not much young children love to do more than grow. After Amy Helgren had her second daughter nearly three decades ago, she realized her girls tended to outgrow their clothes before they'd really had a chance to break them in or learn to embroider them with the family crest. That still-useful, still-adorable gear formed the first inventory for The Second Child, now a popular boutique stocked with stylish and gently used children's and maternity wear.
In addition to the duds, parents and kids exploring the handsome brick Lincoln Park storefront will often find board books, strollers, and all sorts of toys. They might find other resources, too: on her website, Helgren notes, "The store also happens to be a great resource for networking, everything from baby-sitters [to] birthday parties or the latest in breast pumps!" The Second Child also offers convenient shopping through their website for anyone with a packed day.
