    My kids have been mistaken, and I've mistaken other kids. Realistically, babies don't look like a boy or a girl if you don't pay attention to what they're wearing...and with all the neutral colours being fashionable these days it's no wonder people get it wrong.
    I would just politely correct people when they got it wrong...no point being annoyed by an innocent mistake, imo.

    One of my boys was always getting called a girl. It annoyed me until I had a conversation with an older person one day. They asked if he was a boy or girl and then said 'you can't assume anymore because people get cranky at you'. It really made me stop and think - are we so precious about this that we are scary people off talking to us?

    My DD1 used to get mistaken for a boy all the time probably because she didn't really get hair until she was two.

    After having a boy, I was so excited to have a girl, that I dressed her up in very girly clothes. Lots of dresses, pink and frills.

    Despite the girls clothes, she frequently got mistaken for a boy and it did upset me. It shouldn't have, but it did.

    People usually mistook my DS1 as daughter, for his appearance which I changed and things improved. Specially his hair. But I don't and didn't mind any of that.
