I saw this comm in parenting101  and I'm glad I found it. I had asked if there was anything I wouldn't think of to register for via my upcoming baby shower (baby number one - want to do this right, lol), or, conversely, if there was something everybody would think I'd need that I really wouldn't, and I received great advice. And then I realized I had one more slightly silly question to ask.
I'm having a girl. Is there anything special I would need versus if I had been having a boy? I would imagine not, but even so, any advice would be great!

The only thing is per baby. If yours spits up a lot, you might need extra spit up rags. If it takes a pacifier, then extra's of those... And all of those kinds of things you won't know until after baby is born.

Here's my rookie mistake, that I will pass on because I didn't think of it. When registering for baby gear, don't go ULTRA GIRLY with it. I mean, it's not a big deal that my son hangs out in a pink pack & play, bouncer, bath chair, etc, but you know, I wish I would have had the foresight to think of other children before I got super frilly items.

Oooh, this is an excellent point. I just went through and looked at my registry, and the amount of pink stuff is overwhelming. Thanks for the tip!

I can't think of anything. And I agree with the commenter above about going neutral for stroller, etc. :)

Thanks! I did pick a neutral theme, which now I'm glad for, ie, future kids, but in the beginning, it was just convenient. I'm doing a pond theme, mostly ducks and frogs, so lots of yellows and greens. And everybody is trying to get me neutral anyway because they don't trust she's a girl.
