Do you think it defines the roles of boys and girls too much to dress a girl in pinks and purples and a boy in blues when they are babies?

  • Not as babies. We put certain collars on babies for every one else to tell if they are a boy or girl. all babies look alike at a certain age.

  • They don't have a clue about colors until they are two to three years old. It won't bother them until some one says its wrong!

  • Idk but I'm having a baby girl and I told everyone no purple and very little pink. I hate those colors with a passion.

  • Nope, my kids dress in a multitude of colors when they were babies and even now. My 2 year old wears a lot of her older brother's hand me downs.

  • As it should. They need a simple way of identifying with their gender. What better way than with colour?

  • Babies, however are only dressed in those colours so OTHERS can identify their gender

  • yeah I agree. I just needed to ask another question to get my points, and I thought it would be interesting to see what others thought on the issue.

  • I don't think so, they can't even see colors in infancy.
