So if you didn't know the gender of your baby what did you do for coming home outfit?

Did you bring a gender neutral outfits to the hospital and buy 0-3 month gender neutral for at home?
Did you bring one outfit for a boy or girl and then hold off on buying clothes until you knew what exactly you were having?

I bought this winnie the pooh outfit that is white and yellow to bring the baby home in but now I'm thinking maybe I should bring one of the girl outfits I have from DD when she was little just in case.

I have only a few hand me down gender neutral stuff and no boy stuff but a TON of girl stuff from DD and I have no desire to want to go and buy any gender neutral stuff so I figured I would just wait until it was born because I have a few gender neutral and a lots of girls.

That way if it's a girl I'm set and didnt waste money on the gender neutral stuff but I was just curious what other people did.

White, yellow or green would be ok for either sex.

DD was a wait until birth to find out baby :lol: we took a blue outfit and a pink one for coming home, but everything else we had with us was neutral.

I got a lot of neutral hand me downs from family and friends, no joke I accepted everything I was offered! So I brought white, cream and yellow clothes to the hospital. I had a Winnie the Pooh sleep suit picked for coming home, it was white and yellow but a week before I went into labour I decided I wanted something else. There was a sale on in one of the local stores, they were selling off a lot of baby stock to make room for the new spring/summer lines. I found newborn sets for only

I've been buying both girl and boy items for cheap ($2 or less) at garage sales or goodwill for this baby. I did buy a couple outfits for fairly cheap that I'm going to use for the coming home outfit, bought both boy and girl items. Places like Kohls or Carters do returns ANYTIME, so I've been stocking up on clearance itmes or stuff that is just too cute and keeping the gift receipts with the items and will return what I don't need after the baby. :)

with my 3rd we left gender a surprize..we had a boy and girl and everyone had their own room etc. I made up a diaper bag with boy stuff and a diaper bag with girl stuff and had them both in the car. After I had the baby, a boy, used my boy stuff. So he did come home in boy things.

Now this child, my 7th, decided we were not allow to know gender until his/her day now.... But I bought a couple gender neutral outfits. I have debated going and buying a boy and girl outfit and keeping the tags on because I usually like gender specific outfits so much better...but what I got is really nice and expensive so I will probably just use that.

Maybe an all white gown or sleeper would be a good choice for you. Then take both pink and blue socks and caps and sweaters so you can pretty inexpensively make it more gender specific
