Avoid Awkward Gender Mishaps With Custom Onesies

Posted by Carefree Tees on 11/13/2014
When babies are born, they can all look alike to anyone who isn’t their mother or father. Their faces are all mushed up, eyes glued shut. Fully dressed or fully swaddled, there is really no way to tell by looking whether your child is male or female. To denote gender when they’re born, boys get blue caps and girls get pink so everyone knows that your child is either a boy or a girl. As soon as you bring baby home, however, you begin dressing him in gender neutral colors.

“What a cute little girl!” A stranger exclaims as she peers into your stroller while you’re standing in line at the grocery store. Your face gets hot with anger, certain that your child’s gender is obvious. You wonder how your little boy could be mistaken for a girl. The truth is, it was a 50/50 shot, and the woman now feels like an idiot. The moment is awkward; you’re angry and she’s embarrassed. The child in the meantime is seemingly oblivious. Infants can’t innately express their gender, nor do they really care.

Sure, you want your child to be able to make his or her own choices when they get older, and maybe you don’t want to conform to society’s rules that “Pink is for Girls and Blue is for Boys.” But it does help us to figure out whether you have a little boy or little girl in your stroller.

One way to avoid awkward gender mishaps is by dressing your baby in custom onesies and tee shirts with their names printed on them. Strangers will likely not only know whether your child is a boy or a girl, but they will also be able to call your child by name. You’ll avoid the awkward moment, and you’re child will relish in hearing his or her name.
