In order to overcome this I am going against my original anti-pink stance and dressing her as in your face girly as I can. And yet people still sometimes think shes a boy. One day she was in a pink floral onesie and a lady said "oh its a boy". Um what the.... So now I'm taking it to a new level, adding headbands! If you think shes a boy when shes dressed girly and wearing a big ass bow on her head you have issues, just saying. Problem I had with this is that she grew out of the cute newborn headbands I bought her really quickly because apart from being a whoppa baby (8lb 9oz) she also had a huge head (37cm) so for a while there I couldn't find any that would fit her head.
I couldn't find any the right size in the big department stores, they all seemed to have newborn size and then 3yr old sized ones with nothing in between. I swear I looked through every shop that even remotely stocked baby items each time we were out with no luck. Finally I found some that were big enough that they didn't cut off the circulation to her head. You guessed it, once again it required searching online. I've found Facebook is so great for finding businesses that stock awesome products that I can't find in 'bricks and mortar' shops.
The headbands I found are from Petite Bebe Couture and they come in a range of different colours and styles. All very girly! And a good price (which is always an added bonus). Hopefully nobody thinks she looks like a boy in the photos below (I realise they are a bit out of focus, but it was extremely hard to get her to stay still).

Yea I realise the black one is super out of focus, but she literally would not stop moving her head. So I thought I better add some of the actual product images as well so you can see what they really look like when they're not zooming around on a babies head. I think the floral ones are great for special occasions and for adding a bit of umph to your subliminal I'm definitely a girl statement.

We also have one of the bow headbands shown above, but it was impossible to get her to stay still long enough for my phone camera to capture a non smudgy photo. I love these ones because they add that little bit of wow factor to an outfit, yet they are simple enough to be used everyday. If it was up to me I would just buy every colour so I would always have one to go with every outfit (to keep those pesky gender blind people at bay). Apparently that may be a bit excessive though - according to T.
I'm sure he'll come around eventually.
If you are in need of some more cute baby headbands then Petite Bebe Couture have you covered. They're something you really can never have enough of if you've got a daughter (or maybe I just have a shopping addiction). As you can see above, there are ample colours to choose from so you are sure to be able to match a headband to an outfit when needed. Great for christenings, photo sessions, parties etc.
Their outfits are also super cute! They also run giveaways and sales throughout the year so be sure to like their Facebook page so you don't miss out on a bargain.
