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

Cupid’s Advice:

You just heard the news that you’re having a baby girl–what do you do now? Finding out the gender of your baby certainly makes everything feel more real. There’s not just a growing baby inside you anymore; there’s a growing baby girl. Cupid offers some tips on how to prepare:

1. Pink vs. Blue: One of the most exciting parts of pregnancy is nesting, which occurs when the mother-to-be prepares for her baby. Painting the baby room is a major step. Once you find out it’s a girl, get ready to buy a lot of pink paint, furniture, and toys!

2. Dress shopping: What mother doesn’t enjoy dressing up her baby? If you’re having a girl, start shopping for those little dresses–what you’ve been waiting to do forever. If it’s a boy, how can you resist those tiny dress shirts and ties? Buying baby clothes will get you excited to meet your new baby.

3. Gender parties: Finding out the sex of your child is such an exciting and memorable moment. Why not share the occasion with family and friends? Let one of your friends learn the sex of the baby before you and your partner; have them buy a cake with either pink or blue frosting inside–depending on the baby’s gender. At the party, the soon to be parents get to discover the sex of their child in front of all their loved ones after slicing the cake. You get to celebrate your baby before he/she even arrives!
