These days the old pink or blue rule has gotten much more lax when it comes to baby's clothes. Of course, you can still get plenty of cute pink outfits for your little princess and great boy blue ones for your boy as well. But you don't have to limit yourself to those colors. There are lots of great different colors to choose from that will still make your little one look as cute as a button.
Even in other colors, outfits can still look sweet and feminine when they are for girls or boyish and cute when they are for little boys. Yellow, for example is a great color that works well for both as does green, orange, beige, white and red.
There are even many blue outfits for girls that have enough charm and detail that they won't make people mistake your sweet doll for a boy.
Of course we all love our babies not matter what they are wearing or look like, but we also all know that most babies are not very distinguishable between boys and girls when they are that small. Their features are still being developed and won't become more gender defined until after the baby's first year or so. Most times this isn't a big deal, but many parents don't want to keep correcting well meaning admirers when they comment on what a cute boy Susie is.
Dressing the baby in clothes that should make the baby's sex obvious is an easy way to avoid expected but sometimes uncomfortable gender mistake moments. Plus, all those adorable outfits make it impossible not to want to put them on, they're too cute to resist!
