All the ones I've CD'ed have been girls so I never really worried about whether something was pink or not.

I'm not going to get any newborn diapers until we find out what we are having, but I want to get Natalie some new diapers. I just don't know now if I should just get her girly stuff and then if we have a boy we can get boy stuff, or if I should start sticking with gender neutral stuff.

What have you done?

I don't really care what diapers my son wears as a toddler. He wears bottoms when out of the house so not like most people ever see them. I have sold a few diapers off that I didn't care for and in turn picked up some more girly diapers for the soon to be baby (and if they're OS my son has been wearing them lol). But my son has had pink diapers since the beginning (bought in a lot). At the same time I don't really care what baby girl wears as diapers as long as there are a few cute ones for dresses. We have a couple of diapers with planes on them that will totally be used on my girl. If I love a diaper print doesn't matter to me. If the diaper is just so so then I've been selling and buying something that I do like or want to try in GN or girl. If next kid is a boy I'm sure I'll have a few more diapers I'll want to sell because I won't care for them at that point. lol

i would just buy/make which ever colours/patterns you like best, if you have a boy i doubt he will care if his diaper is pink, plus when you are out he will have on pants and in the house it doesnt really matter

If #3 is a girl i might pick up some girly covers but for the most part she will just wear the boys stuff

There are certain super girly diapers I have that I would not want to put on a boy. Like the Alice Brights print Thirsties has. I actually am okay with some shades of pink and purple on a boy but not magenta or BG zinnia. After all DH has some pink and lavender socks and dress shirts

I tend to like GN stuff anyway (greens/nature colors etc) so if I were you I would just look for gender neutral stuff you like, or just imagine if you would ever put it on a boy, if not then avoid it.

Congrats by the way!!!!!

All of my stuff is pretty gender neutral, although I don't really have anything against putting a boy in something that might be considered "girly," especially since it will be covered in public. In fact, I have one pocket diaper for Jude that is pink b/c it came with a lot of gently used CDs that I bought.

Thank you, Bokkechick, for my beautiful siggy.

Most of my diapers are gender neutral. I bought like that on purpose because dd is just our first baby and I plan to use my stash on multiple kids. My nicer (ie expensive diapers) are mostly neutral but cheap dipes that will probably fall apart are girlie.

I don't mind about colors/patterns. Kieran rocked some great "girlie" prints when he was younger (they were smaller sized). I loved the bright colors and didn't really care that they were pink/purple. I did avoid flowers, cause that is girlie to me. But pink, purple, whatever.

I would get a mix of girl and gender neutral dipes. Maybe if you are buying 15, get 10 neutral and 5 girlie. If number 3 is a girl for us (which I don't think it is), I will probably buy 5-8 girlie diapers for under dresses/wearing in the summer with tees...and the rest she will wear the diapers we have. I might put away the construction dipes and Dino ones (those seems the most "boy" to me) for just Kieran to wear. But she will still wear flames, skulls, monsters, blue, green, etc.
