At birth, and even for the first couple years of life, it can be hard to tell girls and boys apart from one another. That’s not such a big deal for the parents at home, because they know what their children are.
But when they go out, they may have strangers asking them whether they have a boy or girl or guessing the wrong gender for the baby. That can be frustrating and annoying for parents, and if they want to avoid this and similar problems, then they may want to do something to identify their baby’s gender.
Putting dresses on the baby is not always a viable option. Many times, the parents will put the cutest newborn girl clothes on their child, only for the child to mess them up shortly thereafter. Then the parents have to change them into something else that perhaps isn’t as pretty or as girly.
Also, dressing a newborn in elegant dresses and cute skirts may sound fine in principle, but it many not be quite so simple in practice. It can take a lot of work to get them into the outfits parents want them to wear, and parents may instead opt for something that has more of a unisex look to it. Rompers, pants and a tee or onesies are often easoer to put on the baby than a dress, and parents may go for the easier choice, even if it looks less feminine.
What they may want to do instead of going for something complicated to just use some simple accessories. A hair band, pink hat or other immediately obvious item of girly clothing or accessory will work just as well as any dress or skirt to immediately identify the child as a girl.
Parents can also shop specifically for newborn girl clothes that have very feminine looks to them. They can go on a site like newborn girl clothes and find clothes that are pink, have cute prints or have feminine messages on them. These can be simple rompers and onesies as well, so while the form may be unisex, the aesthetic definitely won’t be. There are simple solutions to the gender identity problem, and parents looking to make it obvious that they have a little girl should move beyond the idea of dresses and skirts and finding something a bit easier to handle at times.
