If you and your partner know that your having a bouncing boy, or an adorable girl; keep it mum. It will save you some money. baby-girl-dress.jpgOnce you tell people the gender of your baby, you can forget about getting useful baby items. For the most part, folks will get you pink and blue items -- often clothing. My best girlfriend was having a girl, and she told everyone. She also explicitly asked people to NOT get her pink baby clothing. She actually had it added to the baby shower invites I believe. She's not a pink fan, plus she needed other items, not baby clothing. Guess how many people got her pink baby clothes as a gift? I think everyone but me. People can't help it. They just want to get those gender specific clothes. I knew I was having a boy but told no one. I got no blue baby clothes, but did get lots of useful items I needed. The clothes I received were perfect for a boy or a girl. So, if you want items like diapers, blankets -- maybe even something really good like a car seat or nice stroller -- tell no one. (Or, announce the gender at your shower!)
