Babies need so much gear, just to get safely through each day with minimal commotion and stress for parents. There are car seats, booster seats, strollers, portable cribs, jumpy seats, swings and more. Every parent wants every little amenity for their new bundle of joy but the cost quickly racks up. Check out some of the many stores around the city that offer second-hand baby gear, which is gently used and ready to roll out the door.
