    I would want to go gender specific, but I would have to go gender neutral on bigger, more expensive items. Blankets, a few toys, bedsheets – smaller items like that I would go gender specific. The Pack-N-Play and carseat and things of that nature I would buy gender neutral… but what about getting a pink mobile or something small and removable?

    @Paiger8:  Gender neutral all the way for me. As we hope to have more than 1 baby and I would like to re-use 🙂

    I will be team green anyway, but I would definitely do neutral on the big things. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a baby boy in a pink stroller down the line, or have to buy all new stuff (without the shower that comes with the first!)

     

    I also happen to think gender neutral stuff is cuter, especially for the big things. There is only so much pink stuff that a baby girl needs, you know?

    I definitely won’t do all gender neutral but will want gender neutral for all big items (pack-and-play, stroller, etc) as we want more than one child and they may not be the same gender.

    Gender Neutral!  My friend was having a girl and had alllllll pink things, EVERYTHING was pink and cutesy.  Baby turned out to be a boy.  Oops!  Luckily I think she was able to return everything and get more boy-ish things, but I can’t imagine the hassle right after having a kid!  So I will always lean towards gender neutral now, it is super rare but does happen that they are wrong with the predictions!

    I haven’t registered or bought anything yet, but plan to go gender neutral on the big-ticket items.

    Gender neutral…it’s has more longivity for use with other kids, plus I feel like even if you have a girl every – while she may want to dress her in pink, not EVERY single item of hers needs to scream “I’M A GIRL!”

    We picked our pack n’ play and swing on what matched our decor and our carseat matches my car’s interior. Sometimes it’s nice to have the larger stuff “blend in” a bit more especially when there are brightly colored toys everywhere.

    I plan to know the gender ahead of time but Darling Husband and I already know that we are aiming for gender neutral. I’m a little tired of the all-blue or all-pink nursery setup/travel systems. I’m not knocking on anyone that has the one-color setup, but it’s definitely too much of one shade for me.

    We’re opting for gender neutral on the big items (stroller, car seat, pack n play) and gender specific on the smaller stuff that will need to be replaced anyway.

    If she’s got a ton of free money (and if I did, which I don’t) I’d totally go gender specific….but it’s definitely NOT cost effective at all.  Also, if she wants to sell any of her stuff after, or give it to someone, with gender neutral she’s twice as likely to find someone who needs it!

    On the big items, definitely gender neutral. We are strongly considering a pooh theme, so maybe a mint green or vintage pooh type print for those.

    I didn’t do anything matchy and picked all gender neutral items for all large purchases. The stroller, car seat, pack n play, high chair, are not all going to be sitting in the room next to each other so I’m fine if it doesn’t match. I did buy all gender clothing and blankets, but everything I else I hope to use again for the next child.
