    Hi I have been offered a Graco travel system and car seat for £20.
    I don't know the sex of my baby yet and its in blue, I have today for a yes or no otherwise they are going to sell it to someone else.
    I'm thinking this is a great bargain and I should go for it. But do I really want people thinking my baby girl could be a boy?

    Would you do it?

    Girls in blue are fine! The only thing to worry about is that you shouldnt be buying a second hand car seat. The rest of it would be worth £20 though! and you could get a new car seat separate x

    I already have a new car seat this car seat would only be used on the pram.
    Or incase of some emergency like my main car seat can't be used to some unknown reason lol
    I think my main promblem is if it is a girl people will be calling her a he or my sister would take the p*ss

    I hate pink, so I'd pretty much insist on blue if I was having a girl :D

    buy a pink footmuff if its a girl? It sounds too much of a bargain to pass up.My daughter had a grey pram,they are easier to keep clean than the lighter colours.

    Blue actually used to be a girly colour because it was seen as feminine and dainty... Pink was seen as a boys colour because it's like red; strong and masculine...

    I'm not particularly fussed on colours, but the way I see it, blue works better for boy and girl (eg if we buy blue we can reuse it no matter what sex/s we have) and pink is nowadays seen as being a bit too girly to put a boy in. :)

    Hun...............It is only a pushchair!! I bought a blue one because it was a bargain at the time!! I have 2 girls and they have both used it. It is not as though you are dressing it (if a girl) in a suit and tie xx

    I bought a navy pram for my DD and knew it was a girl so I would be able to use it for another child even if it was a boy! Good you got it :)
