Why give gender-neutral gifts to babies?

little gender-neutral musical cloud

In recent years, gender-neutral gifts have become very popular at baby showers and on baby registries. Many parents do not want to know the sex of the child right away. It is therefore natural to create products adapted to their needs. Some do not want their child to live in a box and prefer to give them the choice.

Gender stereotypes

Gender stereotypes are preconceived and often limiting ideas about the roles, behaviors and characteristics that are considered appropriate for boys and girls. These stereotypes are frequently transmitted from early childhood through education, the media, and society in general . Gender stereotypes can influence how children perceive their own gender, but also how they perceive other genders.

Gender stereotypes can have negative consequences for children. For example, girls may be encouraged to play with dolls and be attentive, while boys are encouraged to play with cars and be active. These expectations can limit the choice of activities and toys that children consider acceptable for their gender, which can hinder their personal development. Additionally, gender stereotypes can also contribute to discrimination, stigmatization and harassment against children who do not conform to traditional gender expectations.

Gender stereotypes can also have negative consequences on society as a whole. They can contribute to the perpetuation of gender inequalities. Gender stereotypes can also influence the way women are treated in media and advertising. Finally, they can also influence the way men are perceived and treated, in order to conform to traditional expectations of masculinity.

The birth gift that promotes child development

Giving a gender-neutral baby gift helps combat stereotypes and allows the child to open up to new opportunities. Indeed, making a distinction between girls' toys and boys' toys can be problematic. It can condition the baby and does not always promote his development.

Obviously, if your child loves pink or blue, there's nothing stopping you from giving them a gender-neutral gift. This gives greater freedom and open-mindedness to the child.

It is therefore advisable to buy diverse toys and games, so that the child develops his own choices. This gives him better personal esteem , which is essential to the development of the child, particularly during early childhood.

This popular trend which favors equality and respect offers several advantages. Preparing for a birth is very complicated, it becomes simpler when you do not know the sex of the child. It is therefore also simpler to offer a gender-neutral birth gift , because we are not based on gender. A gender-neutral gift will blend in more easily in baby's room unlike others.
