Baby clothes can often be more fun to shop for than other things like toys and nursery décor. While everyone might register for the same old pack of white onesies when expecting, true baby apparel shopping starts once the baby arrives. Since the infant stage seems to pass by so quickly, it can be fun to take advantage of some of the cute and trendy outfits made in infant sizes. Whether you’re looking for one-of-a-kind clothing for yourself or for a gift, a number of Chicago children’s boutiques offer some standout items. While the list for “Best Baby Clothing Stores In Chicago” offered some great options, this new list shows who maintained their spot and who earned a new one.
