How do you prepare for a son over a daughter?
Once you find out the gender of your baby, the real prep-work begins.¬† Here are a few ways to prepare for a son:
1. Prepare the baby‚Äôs room: When you find out the gender of your baby, prepare his room appropriately.¬† Feel free to finally break away from a gender-neutral color scheme and migrate towards shades of blue, green, and brown.¬† Seeing the completed room will take a large burden off of your shoulders.
2. Inform relatives: Keep your friends and family up-to-date.¬† Many of them, especially the ones planning the baby shower, will need (almost) as much time as you do to prepare.
3. Brainstorm: The gender of a baby is always unpredictable.¬† If you were hoping for a daughter to play dress-up with, then you have some readjusting to do.¬† Come up with other activities and buy toys that your son could enjoy.
