We are just starting the shopping with baby no.1 on the way and I'm getting more & more frustrated that everything seems to be gender specific!
We refuse to have a blue boy or a pink girl but everything is marketed this way. Whyyyyy????
Also, as we are not finding out the sex, it just makes everything harder.
I guess its the same with toys really, with a distinct difference between boys & girls toys.
What are your thoughts? I think my views are too progressive for our environment!

Why is everything gender specific!!!!

Doesnt bother me.
Kudos for not finding out the gender though......much much stronger than me, that would drive me craaaaazy!

I'm starting to realise how challenging not finding out is!

We haven't found out the sex of this bub (yes it's killing me) but I find the sake problem. I've actually gone online and purchased items from USA and UK as they have a much bigger range of unisex baby stuff. Once bub is born ill do the pink/blue stuff but I need stuff for the hospital

Had the same problem here. Just buy a few things for hospital and then shop after. Loved buying unisex newborn stuff, got to use everything twice

I have never found out what sex any of my kids were so I just bought a handful of things then went shopping after I had bubs, family & friends bought a lot while I was in hospital

Yep, this really frustrates me as well. Though I haven't had a problem finding colourful (purple, green, grey, yellow) onesies at Target, Big W etc and I don't really mind putting a boy in pink or a girl in blue, either.

Yes! I hated this, blankets, wraps, bedding etc are so hard to find not in pink or blue! You can get basic neutral clothing but not heaps :-/

Found the same problem, any piece of clothing I've bought so far I find leans more towards looking boyish then gender neutral but that doesn't really bother me. The baby doesn't care what colour it's wearing.

But also don't want to spend all my time explaining that it's a boy or a girl just because it won't be wearing the expected colours. Catch 22!
