We got mostly what was on the registry (YAY) with a handful of rebellious family members that decided to wait till baby was born before making their purchases. Lol Then when dd got here we went from there on clothes we needed, & a number of family & friends have now gotten & given us their “pink” gifts. And really at first since baby is primarily home anyways, all you need are some onsies & sleepers (if you prefer thoughs).

I really liked being team green & am glad we went that route…. Especially with the baby shower. Darling Husband & I decided that even if we find out next time we won’t be sharing it with anyone. πŸ™‚

I didn’t have a baby shower with either of my kids, and we were Team Green for both.  Basically, I just bought some gender neutral sleep n’ play outfits and other basics (onesies, soft pants, etc…) and then went crazy shopping after they were born.  Carters has some cute gender neutral stuff, both in store and on their website.  Also, I found that a lot of boys stuff works for either sex.  

Being Team Green was an absoltuley amazing experience for my husband and me, both times. πŸ™‚  In fact, if/when we have a third, we’ll be Team Green again!

Yep – being team green is totally worth it. SO SO fun to find out in that moment “It’s A BOY” (or a Girl :)).

Babies grow SO FAST that in my expereince even those who get loaded down with pink or blue clothes – get WAY TOO MUCH and the baby can’t possible wear them all. So it’s not a bad thing to not receive a ton of clothes at the baby shower.

We received a lot of hammy-down stuff from nieces/nephews that was gender neutral before our son was born and you’d be surprised. Lots of it is animal themed. And really – who cares if  my little girl wears a little outfit with baseballs and footballs on it πŸ™‚ I don’t. Plus my mom found a BUNCH of stuff somehow – she had a whole clothes line full of outfits at my shower πŸ™‚

Don’t worry – your family and friends WILL buy you clothes after the baby is born and they find out the gender. PLUS – you’ll have gift cards to spend AND you’ll have gifts that need to be returned and you can spend that money on clothes. We had SO MUCH for newborn – 6mos that I ended up returning a lot of things so I could get larger sizes. And that was really fun to get to do some of the shopping πŸ™‚

Even if this second baby is a girl – she’ll be wearing lots of big brother hammy-down clothes that are not ‘pink’ or even ‘purple’ for that matter πŸ™‚ But I’ll make sure she also has some ruffles!
