    Is this for YOUR baby boy? I think it’s fine, but it’s more of a risk if you’re buying it for someone else.

    Of course, in the end, he’s just going to drool, vomit, and defecate on it, so who cares, so long as it’s machine-washable? It IS darling though! πŸ™‚

    It is darling!

    They are out of the infant stage so soon. Then it is onto the toddler scene and moving him to a big boy bed with cars, cowboys, or sports themes before you know it.

    My son had the same pink,yellow, and blue nursery set that this sisters had; he was a year and a half before he had the macho Packer/Brewer bedroom.

    I don’t think it had any effect on his testosterone levels!   Wink

     

    Congratulations on the baby!  Enjoy!

    I think it is very gender neutral….just a pretty design instead of cars or something πŸ™‚ It looks classic and upscale.

    I think the colours look girlish (the boys nursery stuff I looked at were all bright bold colours or browns) and the print is flowy and girly. I wouldnt put something like that in my DS’s nurseyr, my FH would hate it LOL. But its YOUR son, as long as you and your FH/SO/ husband both like it then why not?

    If you like those colors the Graham collection has the same color palette with a more masculine feel under the baby boy section πŸ™‚

    I asked my Darling Husband to get a mans opinion and he said it would look fine in a boys room πŸ™‚ I love it!

    I love the colors but I do think the pattern is a bit girly.  It could work for a boy but you would have to pull in a lot of masculine items.

    I think it is extremely feminine.  You wanted to know, right?  πŸ™‚

    I think it’s lovely, but it is pretty girly. But it’s more for you than for him, right? I mean, an infant isn’t going to remember what his crib looked like, and it’s not like he’d have his friends over making fun of him for it.

    I think its lovely.  Its a little more feminine than masculine, but if I saw it in a boy’s nursery I wouldn’t think it looked odd.

    It’s feminine to me but the colors are very gender neutral.

    are you sure you are even going to use the bumpers?  Without them it is definitely boyish but also not much to it…I think it can work for a boy, though, if you are super in love with it…I personally am glad we didn’t spend what we originally wanted to on bedding, since you need backup bedding, anyway, and we took down the bumpers to reduce SIDS risk…those bumpers are super cute, though, so maybe you could make something else out of them if you decided not to use bumpers
