How do you prepare for a baby girl versus a boy?
Preparing for a baby is difficult, but knowing the gender of your child can make it a lot easier.Â Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a baby girl:
1. Stay true to your taste:Â The upside in preparing for a girl is that you can always rely on your taste.Â Pick dolls and furniture that you or your sister would have liked as a child.Â Your daughter will most likely share your preferences.
2. Narrow your options:Â If you know youâ€™re having a girl, save time and money by only buying gender-specific items.Â For example, instead of buying several baby name books, buy only a few female-specific name books.
3. Be prepared for a surprise:Â Ultrasounds arenâ€™t always correct.Â Though unlikely, you could give birth to a boy instead.Â Be prepared for a surprise, and have a few gender-neutral items on back up.
