    Do you think a baby should wear clothes suited to its gender?

    Should you ever put a baby girl in blue or a boy in pink.

    I don't think it will damage the child if you dress them in non-gender specific colors. I think it's a nice idea to have them in gender colored clothing, but not essential.  Whites, yellows, and other neutral colors are also good for baby.

    You can, it's your choice. I won't put my son in pink though. Maybe it's because society has drilled into our heads that pink is a girl's color, but I won't make him wear a feminine colored outfit. I don't want people getting confused about his gender. I don't want to introduce my son and people go, "Oh, I thought he was a girl."

    Put the baby in any outfit that looks great on them....of course babies look great in anything!  My daughter had dark hair and dark eyes so she looked especially good in navy blue and red!  Pink washed her out and made her look pale.  She was never mistake for a boy - between ruffles and bows, there was no mistake that she was all girl even with only baby fuzz for hair.

    Definitely yes. It's highly more accepted for a girl to be in blue than a boy in pink. I'm not sure why. I just know my son will be decked out in race cars and dinosaurs.

    I saw a little boy that his mother put in little beauty pageants I suppose because she had no girl and although he did not wear dresses he looked very feminine and the mother you could tell pushed all of this on him and I think that is very very wrong. Colors don't matter and there may be natural occurrences but I have seen this done on a 20/20 show to a child by parents and a doctor and it really messed this kid up bad. It should be illegal. So colors mean nothing, no, but they should be treated like the sex they were born to be.
