Do you like the standard pink or blue baby clothes?
Do you stay away from these clothing choices and just go for neutral colors?
Do you think that colors don't matter, it's how you raise your children to see that pink isn't feminine, that it's just a color?

I have to say, I can't see me putting my future hypothetical son in pink. This is obviously due to the stigma that comes with pink, and it's something (among many things lol) that I'm working on correcting. Hopefully by the time I have a son this silly stigma will be out the window for me

My son has a pink polo, pink is becoming a man's color now....you know, only a real man wears pink. DD has, and always has had, all different colors from pink to blue, red, ect. I guess girls can wear anything, but now, there is a new trend with pink and it is being marketed more and more for men and boys. My brother has a couple of pink shirts and I found the polo for DS, and he looks very "masculine" in it. B)

London wears a lot of pink, but thats mainly because it's my favorite color. I do try to buy blues and greens if I find anything, but it's so hard because there just isn't much out there. If I had a boy I wouldn't think twice about putting him in pink, my 20 yo brother wears pink, it's so much more common. Now when they were really small I don't know because ppl are so dump they would call London a boy he even if she had pink ruffles on..... so if she was a boy I can imagine it would have been worse..... It always makes me so mad.. she has her ears pierced now and they STILL say he at almost every dr.'s appt. So I guess color really doesn't matter anymore.

When my son was an infant I was all about blue...he wears red, yellow, green stuff now, but I probably wouldn't put him in pink (my husband would have a cow). He does have a polo with a purple stripe in it.

Call me Mrs. Stigma, because I'd never put my son in pink. He wears blues, greens, reds, tans, etc. No pink though.

i have a hard enough time with overalls, never mind pink shirts. I'm into boy boy clothing, but like older fashioned. My DF would have a hissy fit if he caught one of our boys in in pinks. LOL

I am not a fan of pink or purple, particularly purple, so I told all my friends and family that if they bought DD anything purple they get diaper duty when they visit It's really hard not to dress her in those colors though, b/c most of the baby clothing is split up like that.

Honestly, I can see why. When she was an infant, even when she was dressed head-to-toe in pink, people would STILL ask whether she was a boy or girl lol C'mon!

Now that she's older, they have awsome clothes for her lol No more pink or purple!!! Lots of jeans and greens and blues, oh my! I've always hated dressing her in "baby" clothes, she wears miniature adult clothing lol
I predict a riot.

I think it's harder to find baby clothes (for newborns) that aren't pink or blue. I have no problem putting pink on boys and blue on girls. My son has a pink tie. He also has this cute shirt DH brought him back from Brazil that has big reddish/pink flowers on it. It's adorable.

My DD has a ton of pink clothes from various people and that is what she wears most. But, I am seriously starting to HATE pink!! So, I refuse to buy her anymore pink things (well, unless I fall in love with them but that hasn't happened recently). I've even bought her several things from the "boy" section.

DS wears pink and purple! I think they are great colours for either sex and they suit his complexion well. I think there is such a division when they are newborns because some people dont like their baby to be mistaken for the opposite sex. It really doesnt matter to me! They are just babies.

I have 3 boys and I think DH would divorce me if I ever let them wear pink, lol!!! Seriously though, I know more & more guys are wearing pink, but I won't put my boys in pink until they ask for it.

I dress my baby in whatever is cheap, washable, and comfortable. They will happily poop and puke on it no matter what color it is.

My oldest son's favorite color is pink (or green, depending on his mood at the time, I guess).

I have to say that Aden wears mostly pink and purple. I have always liked both of those colors and I really couldn't give a crap less about gender stereotyping. She does have a lot of yellow and green summer stuff now but mostly with flowers on it.

When she is older she can wear whatever color she wants, but for now, I agree with people being idiots when it comes to whether a baby is a boy or girl. Who dresses their 1 month old boy in pink with ruffles and a bow on his head? I mean come on!

I'm glad Eric is getting into toddler clothes though, I'm tired of so much of it being blue, pink, or white. Eric doesn't wear pink because I, personally, thoroughly dislike pink And he does wear a lot of blue, because he has the bluest eyes and it makes them stand out so gorgeously If and when I have a daughter, I doubt she will have much pink, only what others buy for her. And I'll certainly have no problem putting her in blue!

DD wears mostly pink or purple and has since she was born. I have no problem putting on blue on her she has one or two outfits that are blue. I wouldn't buy her boy clothes, but if they are girls clothes, but aren't exactly girly colors I have no problem. If I had a boy I would definitly put him in pink I think little boys in those colors look adorable.

My Aunt said to my niece (when she was 2 months old)....."Someone should tell your mommy you don't look very good in purple little boy."................
