Baby clothes

 Boy or girl?

My brother and his wife bought a big package of second-hand baby clothing with different sizes. Their baby is still much smaller than little monkey, so we have been using some of their baby clothes beforehand. Great way to save money! It's just that their baby is a boy, so of course everybody mistakes little monkey for a boy when we go out with these clothes. I find it so funny when everybody automatically identifies the baby's gender based on the color of the clothes. It seems that most colors are boy colors, except for light pink, yellow and orange.

Boy or girl?

Finnish mothers can choose to get a free maternity package or a sum of money for each baby from the government. The clothes in maternity package are supposed to be gender neutral, but whenever we have gone out with these clothes, little monkey will again be mistaken for a boy. Some examples below;

This pink jumpsuit (below) is made by my mother for me when I was a baby. It's girly allright, but very unpractical to use, so I only put it on for a few times to take a picture and storaged it away.
