I am definitely getting this cute bonnet from Zalora via ShopBack because it made me fall in love with blue again:
Did you know that pink used to be a baby boy’s color?
Here’s what Smithsonian.com had to say:
“Ladies’ Home Journal article in June 1918 said, “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” Other sources said blue was flattering for blonds, pink for brunettes; or blue was for blue-eyed babies, pink for brown-eyed babies, according to Paoletti.
In 1927, Time magazine printed a chart showing sex-appropriate colors for girls and boys according to leading U.S. stores. In Boston, Filene’s told parents to dress boys in pink. So did Best & Co. in New York City, Halle’s in Cleveland and Marshall Field in Chicago”.
It was in the 1940s that baby clothing manufacturers settled on blue for boys and pink for girls.
Whatever the color, though, just make sure you consider these six things when buying baby clothes and baby boy accessories. Your fashionable baby boy clothes should fit your baby boy perfectly and he should be comfortable with what he is wearing.

It's sad and disturbing we are assigning color to gender. Happy and healthy…that's what matters.
