gender neutral?.. ♥garrett&adalyn 2 kids; Texas 10762 posts

So this is the travel system we have from when my son was a baby:

we're having a girl this time, and while I'd love to get a girly one, I don't think we will unless someone were to gift us one (which I doubt they will lol).. do you think this is gender neutral enough for a girl? I know it doesn't really matter.. I'll probably just stick a pink blanket on her anyway, but just thought I'd see what everyone thinks.

It looks pretty gender neutral to me. I actually really like that color/pattern for girls haha

I think that'll work. My cousin had the same one for her daughter.

I think it will do just fine.

all colors are gender neutral, lol. But yes, if you're thinking about the stereotypical boy/girl then that would be gender neutral. The good thing about having a girl after a boy is that most things that's "okay" for a boy works for a girl, the other way around that's when people raise hell, lol

I know, right? lol Yeah, it's funny that a girl can wear blue and brown but a boy can't wear pink or purple w/out people saying you're a sicko or making him gay or confusing him. SO is freaking out b/c DS's hair is touching his ears and I had him in a shirt that he thought was feminine (red and white stripes, really?!) He also hated the secondhand very boy-printed sleep gowns I sometimes put on him when he was a NB. Sheesh, gimme a break.

I think it's neutral. I like it and I think you should reuse it. We used a "gender neutral" one because I'm cheap and don't want to buy a new on for the next kiddo. :D E usually had bows in her hair and pink blankets, so it didn't matter that her seat wasn't "girly." lol.

yeah true. close to the same color scheme lol. plus, she'll probably only be in it for a short time anyway. Garrett was out of it by 6/7 months. I'm figuring when income tax time rolls around we'll get Garrett a Nautilus or something and baby girl will take over his Myride.

That's what we did, too. Although Ella hadn't outgrown the infant seat, I was sick of lugging it around so we switched at 6-7 months. I've heard great things about the Nautilus. :D
