How do you prepare for a baby boy versus a girl?

Cupid’s Advice:

Preparing for a baby can be stressful, but knowing the gender can help narrow down a lot of tough decisions. Here are some ways to gear up for the baby blue over the pink:

1. Color Schemes: From picking out the paint color of the nursery to all of the little clothes, gender is a vital factor. When preparing for a boy, masculine colors like blue and green are more popular, compared to floral colors like pink and orange for girls.

2. Decorations and Toys: As hard as it will be to walk past all of those Barbies and tutus without longing to buy them, you’ll have to if you’re preparing for a boy. Your house needs to be full of miniature race cars and train sets if you want your baby boy to grow up in a fun environment.

3. Talk to your spouse’s parents: You can learn a lot from your in-laws in preparing for a baby boy, whereas if you were having a girl, you’ll want to ask your own parents for advice. From the mistakes they made to the special recipes they have, it’s in your best interest to learn from those with the most direct experience, even if that means talking to your partner’s parents a little more.
