Not a chance. BUT I have had 3 girls and have longed for a little boy since I could walk, so when he finally came, he is the most boyish boy in the world :lol:

Totally. I get quite offended by the idea that pink is for girls and blue is for boys. Talk about gender stereotyping, no wonder little girls grow up to think they can't do maths. I recently read 'Delusions of Gender' by Cordelia Fine and I made dh read it - it blew his (sceptical) mind. Sorry, hope that didn't sound like a rant!

LO had a Flower Power easyfit which looked gorgeous on him but it was a bad fit so I sold it :( replaced it with a Zinnia Flip though so it's all good :)

DS is currently totally rocking a hot pink Baby Beehinds. :cool: Iris' stash was quite girly. Having bought a fair few more boyish nappies for Callum when pregnant, I've found most 'boy' nappies pretty dull. And I decided he doesn't care; the prints and colours are for my benefit, not his. So lots of Callum's stash is now pink. And he looks awesome in it. :)

I would, the closest we have though is a lilac fuzzi bunz....I just don't like my boys in girl-styled clothes (even as a tiny baby I couldn't bear to have DS1 in a girl-ish sleepsuit etc.) , but nappies are fine!

DS had lots of girly nappies - not a huge amount of pink because I'm not a pink fan, but lots of ones with flowery prints. :D

I would yes, I have no issue at all with what's considered girly when it comes to things like tie dye. I wouldn't put him in something pink and sparkly with glittery fairies or a princess on it though but that would only be because it would look daft not because of any gender stereotyping.
I have him in pink/purple etc quite often.

Yes I would, Dexter wears quite a few of Harriets old pink/girly nappies. In fact those are the ones he usually picks first out of the box :wink:
