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

Cupid’s Advice:

Are you having a baby boy or girl? Lots of people are going to ask you and your partner that question; sometimes even yourself. Although you may decide to wait till delivery for the answer, there are different preparations to consider when preparing for having a girl versus a boy. To get you started, here are a few ideas:

1. Color differences: If neutral beige has never been your color of choice, finding out the gender as soon as possible will help you and your partner pick a color — pink or blue — and making life easier for baby gifts.

2. Toys to buy: Many baby girls begin to speak much sooner than boys, due to the difference in their brain development speed. So feel free to get your little girl toys that help with speech development at an early age.

3. Clothing: Since girls don’t out grow their clothing as fast as boys, your little girl’s clothes will last longer in the first 6 months of her life. Therefore, you may feel a little better when splurging for her first designer outfit.
