That used to happen to me all of the time, with both of my kids. My son had really long hair when he was a baby, so even when he was in all blue, everyone would assume he was a girl. I would politely correct them and go on my way. Same with DD. Even though she also had really long hair, and we always put a bow in it and she always wore dresses, people would always call her a boy. Again, I just politely correct them and go on my way, but man is it annoying!

I have the same problem. I find it is usually elderly people who reference my baby girl being a boy. Her hair is really think and I can't do much with it. So no cute hair bows for us yet!

My daughter can easily be mistaken for a boy without clothes but the ONE time someone blatantly called her a boy she was literally wearing all pink.

My DS has been mistaken for a girl a couple of times.  Does it bother me? No.  I don't know half the time I just don't pay attnetion to people.

my DD has her ears pierced long enough hair for bows and i dress her very girly i get it allot to nd it does not make any sense to me! bc when i comment on peoples baby's i only use gender if i can clearly tell (you know when i baby is in girls or boys clothes or when your not sure i don't add gender or i ask) but anyway i think it might be bc my car seat/stroller is "neutral grey and redish color and she usually holds a small lovie blankie that could look boyish? its purple though with green swearyies to me its girl or neutral but iv seen a boy with it..  dono doesnt seem to bother me bc i know my baby is a girl and i dress her dam cute

Happened with my son even when he was dressed in blue, happens with my daughter even when iin all pink, I've even had it happen when she was in a dress. I just politely correct, and use "her" or "she" a lot

Elderly do it a lot because babies use to be dressed in whatever color they had. No rule that pink was for girls. I also think they are just to busy looking at their cute little face to notice the outfit.

This always happens to me too! I have 4 girls and all have been pretty much bald so if they are not decked out head to toe in pink they are automatically called boys. And even in pink and flowers have been called boys several times! lol

I still to this day remember being in Lowe's getting some flats of flowers with my oldest, who was about 4 mos at the time.  He was the biggest, fattest baby on the block, very little hair, and he was wearing a blue sweatshirt with football designs on it and blue sweatpants.  The cashier actually asked, "Is that a boy or a girl?".  Uh, duh...

Babies look like babies. And now a days you never know with dress, reusing older siblings of diff gender?

And my husband wears magenta like pink, I hate pink, but my son has a pink aio diaper! go dad!
