Is a White crib to girly? The dressers I already bought are white with natural wood top and knobs. So I think I will have to go with a white crib. We are doing Jett's room in Firetrucks. So that would prob make a white crib less girly? I was looking at reviews on the crib and it seems like everyone bought it for a girl haha.

What color is your crib going to be?

I don't think a white crib is girly at all! It's (as you say) how you decorate the room that makes it gender specific. Yay for firetrucks! how cute.

We have a white cot/crib and will be using it for all our babies whether they are boy or girl.

We bought a white crib with DD, the bedding made it girly, but I think it's totally gender neutral depending on how you decorate. I never cared for the wooden-colored cribs.

I love white cribs! I don't think they are girly. We have a dark wood one and I wish we had a white one.

I don't think white is too girly. We tried to do everything gender neutral so all our stuff could be reused (didn't work as planned though). Our crib and nursery furniture is black. We have alphabet soup bedding that is a mix of primary colors.

I think that with navy, red, and grey (assuming) firetruck colors, a white crib will look far from girly! Sounds like it will go perfectly with the theme. Of course, you could always do a natural wood crib, to match the knobs on the dresser.

Thank you so much Kris2you for my lovely siggy!!!

Another idea would be to match the wood that is on the dressers for your crib. I actually want to do this, I saw a picture of a nursery mixing white and wood together in a nursery and it was really cool!! I say go with what you want!

You can definitely decorate it to not be girly.

Nic and Landon both used the same white crib so I obviously think it is fine. The decorations and bedding will be what gives it away.

I wanted a white crib but D doesn't like them and wants espresso so I'm having to convert. But I get to pick the bedding so I guess there's the compromise lol. But I'd love a white crib for a boy or girl because I think it makes the bedding pop, not girl it up.

Would have picked white if for a boy or a girl ... as Im sure the other things in the room would have given the sex away at a glance. so no worries

Not girly at all. I had a white crib for my first two, one girl and one boy. Now though I don't love white anymore and stick with my Cherry Wood furniture.
Thank you Jaidynsmum!

We bought a white crib (yes, already!) because we wanted white weather it was a little girl or boy. In fact, since I found out I was pregnant, I've had that weird feeling we're having a boy. Still went for white!
If you Google "boy nursery", you'll find plenty of nurseries with white cribs.

With a white crib I think it is more how you decorate

I think white is fine with either sex! We have all espresso furniture so I will be reusing all of that!
