Kinda fits in with the thread I started earlier about sexism against men.
Not spruiking, just mindful of not derailing the OP.

Yep, DS was mistaken for a girl as well when he was a baby. We took him for a haircut (blonde longish hair) and the hairdresses all cooed over my "beautiful baby girl".. didn't help that they were all Vietnamese and had trouble understanding when I explained that he was actually a boy. He was wearing a purple top as well.
I mistook my ex boss's baby girl for a boy... during my job interveiw! She was bouncing her baby on her knee during the interview (it was at a child's play centre) and she was dressed in all grey.. I still got the job though
And, not long after DS was born, I worked casually as a waitress and my boss asked me if I was pregnant one day!! Mortified. I was wearing an apron and it must have just added to the baby belly I still had.. I still remember the awkward feeling to this day

These stories are so funny! I think the cheese is my favourite.
I have had loads of incidents where my girls have been mistaken for boys but two in particular stand out, both with DD2.
An old man patted DD (about 7 months) on the head and said, 'Hello young fella'. DD was dressed in a pink tennis dress - could not have been more girly if she tried. I was so outraged I put a picture of her on Facebook asking my friends if she looked vaguely like a boy!
When DD was 8 months a lady told me that my little 'boy' was so cute. DD was dressed in a white body suit with glittery silver stripes and puffed sleeves. Told the lady that my boy was actually a girl and she replied 'oh, but she looks like a boy'.......
Another really weird conversation I had was with an old lady at the Botanical Gardens when I was pregnant with DD2. She asked me what I was having and I told her that I was pregnant with my second girl. She asked me if I was despondent! What do you say to that?!
