What are some ways to prepare for a daughter versus a son?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Preparing for a baby is often an overwhelming task. Cupid has some advice about how to stay on top of things:

1. General supplies: For the first 12 or so weeks you probably won’t be able to tell the gender of your baby. This is the perfect time to gather the bare essentials that you would need gender regardless. Some gender-neutral furniture for the baby’s room can be purchased as well as a changing table. You can also take this time to read up about the general birthing process as this will help understand what you will be in for in a few months’ time.

2. Getting specific: After the three month mark is generally when you will be able to find out the sex of your child. This is when you can go crazy picking out all sorts of outfits for your baby girl. Clothes in the pink and purple color family will save you from having to answer the question of whether or not your child is a boy or a girl. Also think about purchasing some cute and comfortable headbands for your baby. Who doesn’t love a baby with a bow?!

3. Finishing touches: The third trimester is really when you should start making sure you’ve done everything you meant to up to this point. Your partner can assemble the crib while you make sure you have sheets for the crib as well as a mobile for above the crib.  Patterns with butterflies and flowers are perfect for any baby girl.
