Neutral doesn’t mean tiresome. It means versatile! If you’re waiting for your baby’s first birthday to hear the doctor say, “It’s a boy or It’s a girl! then you’ll want to consider gender neutral colors. This is also a good choice if you’re planning to use the nursery for future babies. Then once your little one is born you can accessorize with gender specific colors to make it more princess or prince suited.

Gender Neutral from Baby to Toddler
A bedding set for the crib can also be used on a toddler bed, but sometimes toddlers say, “I’m a big boy now, and I don’t want babyish bedding anymore!” This usually happens when parents choose a crib bedding set that has a baby theme. If you choose a truly gender and age neutral bedding set for the crib then you’ll be able to use it for your baby and all the way through the toddler years. If using your crib bedding past the crib stage is your goal then consider a set with an interesting pattern or shapes in gender neutral colors, rather than a strictly baby theme. This will keep your baby happy as he grows into a walking and talking youngster.
