    Totally agree. We also get some strange looks when we say we aren't finding out bubs sex.

    I have brought a few lemons, greens & greys. Some of the printed onesies look more boy than girl but will just add something girly, that's if bub is a girl.

    Our nursery will have a jungle/safari theme which is pretty gender neutral in our opinion.

    Clothing doesn't bother me.

    Having a pink or blue version of the same toy though is dumb though. It wasn't so prevalent in 2005 when DD was born... It seems to be much more recent.

    We don't know the sex of bub and we've just been buying greens, yellows etc that to me are gender neutral. I think when bub is here we will get some specific stuff but as I want more kids I think it's a good idea for me to have quite a lot of things in neutral colours so I can use them regardless of the sex of subsequent babies

    Try Marks & Spencers online, they have a great range of good quality baby stuff, usually lots of bright colours to pick from which can be gender neutral.

    I didn't find out the sex of DD2 & found setting up the nursery the hardest, finally decided on a cocalo baby farm animal set (it has no pinks or blues). Clothing wise I bought white singlets & bonds suits, a girl & a boy coming home outfit, that was pretty much it cause everything around was gender specific.

    Some of my friend's bought outfits for either a boy or a girl as shower gifts (depending on what they thought I was having), DH just went and exchanged them whilst I was still in hospital, it was nice that he got to choose things by himself for DD2.

    It gets worse as kids get older. I haven't found out sex of any of my kids, and i love the different colours in my newborn clothes. rainbow, orange, purple, green, black... But it does take a bit of searching. I also make my own clothes and prefer doing them in colours that work for boys or girls so they can be handed on again and again and get more use.

    Thanks Moose, great article. Yes I'm a feminist (obviously), I like to question social norms AND I have a few issues with the gender construct!!

    I'm actually considering sewing my own nursery linen!

    Thank ladies, lots of great comments! I tried to do some more shopping this weekend but with similar results. White is everywhere but still lacking much colour. I'm having a summer baby so was hoping for bright orange, green, yellow etc. I can get a few white or pastel jumpsuits but that's about it. Will definitely buy a few 'boyish' and 'girlish' outfits for the first few weeks when we will be having visitors and just return whatever outfits aren't needed.
