    Any issues with family giving gifts of these things you’re trying to avoid?

      Trying to be “gender neutral” at first with baby items was pretty much a wash. Those who tried said it was extremely difficult to find neutral items and then even with a conscious effort, about 90% of their clothing was pink. (but everyone thinks hairless babies are boys no matter how much pink they’re wearing lol). For 1st and 2nd birthdays and holidays when family and friends would ask for gift ideas we just kindly requested no Disney items or “over the top girly” and everyone respected it and no one said it was a difficult task…the gifts were more focused on developmental/learning milestones, or animals, Melissa and Doug brand etc. Once they hit age 3, gifts became really easy because the girls personalities were really there with more obvious likes of certain shows, toys, crafts, animals, etc so no one even thought to get them anything Princess related.
