Ok ladies, one of the things I'm having a hard time with about having a boy is clothes. I'm pretty particular about the girls' clothes (not brands, just that I know what I like- no neon, no words, generally no characters/pictures, etc) and for boys, I'm lost. Everything I see for boys has trucks or dinosaurs on it. Does anyone have any favorite places to get boy stuff?

(Btw, I finally went through all the girl clothes I was saving and managed to pull out a few gender neutral items. Out of literally hundreds, possibly 1000+ items, maybe 8 white, yellow, or green onsies! )

I'm worried about that too because having a girl first I realized how stinkin' cute their clothes are! I hope I find cute things

I too went through a few totes of Bella's clothes and was able to find a few jammies and sleep sacks that were gender neutral or boyish.

It's true that the selection is much smaller. Once you figure out the style baby boy clothes you like, you will have a much easier time finding that style. I mostly opted for tiny versions of "man" clothes. LOl. For example, little polo shirts and things daddy would wear but in baby sizes

I've been looking around and haven't found much I like. Hopefully the fall stuff will be cute.

I'm the same way. I like traditional prints and styles. Dislike the monster trucks and airplanes etc. I've found that Gymboree/ crazy8s are great for nice simple styles and decently affordable. Alternatively JCPenny's has a nice selection with their American Living line. I've been buying here and there since we found out we were having a boy and man is it a PITA compared to the girls!!

I like Carters for both boys and girls but I know sometimes they are too "cutesy"... I really like how comfortable they are and without tags.

That's something else- I love to shop at consignment sales, but it's a lot harderto find things for boys because they are so rough on their clothes.

Carters, OshKosh, and Children's Place have a lot of really affordable, awesome things for boys! I prefer to stay with polo style shirts, khaki shorts, and jean and khaki pants. I always got so many compliments on how DH and I dressed our boys, LOL. They always looked "nice" without it costing a lot.

I posted about this not long ago. I'm finding OshKosh, Gap, Gymboree, and Carters to have the cutest stuff. I've got most of what we have via facebook yardsales and have been really picky with what I get. I know we'll get tons at our baby showers and probably quite a bit we won't love. But our babies tend to live in sleepers and onesies with comfy pants most of the time lol

I am having the exact same issue!!!! I am picky as well but also not about brands...but I dont like charecter clothing or overly cutsie things- no sailboats, trucks, cars ect...that combined with the fact that there are already way more girl things available than boy things means it's tough to pick things out.
I have found that Carters and Sears had some cute things.
