Gender Roles and Baby Clothes

As a father of a girl and a boy I am always fascinated by the nature/nurture question-particularly around what traits might fit typical gender roles and how much we influence it. Being a retired metrosexual myself, I am less inclined to willingly push too much of a bias- however let's be clear I am not raising my kids gender neutral. 

Perhaps the most emotive topic is that around clothing/colour. At what age does our bias lead to the pattern of a stereotype? Certainly babies under a year old cannot communicate their preference for pink or for patterns, but does that influence what they like in later years? 

I am not going to pretend I am a child pyschologist so I am not going to try to answer that question! But the debate itself is the reason I am so drawn to Laura's collection of Nod Babygrows. I don't think the images attached have any impact on gender roles, they just look good.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
