How do you prepare for the arrival of a baby girl versus a baby boy?

Cupid’s Advice:

Are you having a boy or girl? That’s usually the first question you will continually answer throughout your pregnancy. Although most new born babies require basically the same needs after birth, here are some things to consider when preparing for a boy versus a girl:

1. Color choice: Nowadays, many parents-to-be option-out of learning the sex of the baby. However, knowing whether you will have a boy or girl definitely helps in determining the color choice for the nursery. Will it be blue or pink? If neutral is not your color preference, then ask your doctor “what’s the gender.”

2. Amount of clothing: Generally boys are born bigger. However, what most new parents aren’t aware of is that boys also grow much faster than girls during the first 6 months of their lives. Therefore, you and your mate will need to buy a larger variety of sizes for your baby boy versus a baby girl. It’s probably better to wait till after 6 months to buy him designer clothing.

3. Circumcision: When having a boy, you and your partner will need to decide whether you want him to be circumcised, either for health and/or religious reasons. The best way to decide is lots of research on the topic. Should you decide yes, you will need a couple of items, such as Epsom salt for his bath water and Vaseline to apply during the healing process. Of course, always consult a doctor first.
