Is navy blue ok for girls?

Hi,

Just wondered what people's thoughts were on navy blue pushchairs for girls? I love the navy bugaboo but we don't know what we're having. Is it too boyish?? Xx

leoniethelioness Sun 13-Nov-16 19:56:50

Um, yes, of course it's fine!

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Sun 13-Nov-16 19:56:55

Navy blue is just fine.

Eolian Sun 13-Nov-16 19:57:07

Any colour is ok for girls!

JohnLapsleyParlabane Sun 13-Nov-16 19:58:00

As pushchairs-and-travel-systems are not usually operated by genitals, yes.

Lj8893 Sun 13-Nov-16 19:58:25

Huh? Of course it's fine. Why wouldn't it be?! I'm a girl and I frequently wear navy blue?!

PaperdollCartoon Sun 13-Nov-16 19:58:28

All colours are fine for all babies.

When I was a baby all pushchairs and prams were black, pretty much.

I survived, my Mum survived.

So I would say 'yes'.

Navy = smart.

john brilliant response grin

Are you sure you don't want something a little more gender neutral? She may decide to chose masculine toys like a blue rattle, a blue teddy moving onto trains/cars/pirates and then you're on a slippery route onto her wanting to be male! Unless you're really wishing she was a he...

Contrary to popular belief, girls can go near colours other than pink without growing a penis.

DontBuyANewMumCashmere Sun 13-Nov-16 19:59:54

NOOOOOOOO! shock

Wtf are you thinking? What if she grows a penis or you give her the gays? hmm

thebloodycat Sun 13-Nov-16 20:00:01

Thanks very much for all the sarcastic replies.

It's fine. More practical than brighter colours which get grubby, and you could brighten it up with a blanket if you wanted to.

thebloodycat Sun 13-Nov-16 20:00:32

So how many of you have bought a hot pink pushchair for a boy?

DramaAlpaca Sun 13-Nov-16 20:00:49

Errrm... of course it is. I don't understand why it wouldn't be. Just choose one you like.

Navy blue sounds very practical, and it'll probably be easy to sell on later when you've finished with it.

LucyInTheSkyWithDonuts Sun 13-Nov-16 20:00:58

What exactly are you worried about???

If you like it, buy it, your baby will give no fucks as to what colour it is....

pinkyredrose Sun 13-Nov-16 20:01:01

People might think she's a boy! What the hell would you do, it'd be a nightmare.

Lj8893 Sun 13-Nov-16 20:01:06

I don't really know what kind of replies you were expecting when you ask such a ridiculous question!

OnwardsAndUpwardsYo Sun 13-Nov-16 20:01:55

I don't understand the question! Do you like the colour? Then yes, it's great.

Our daughter was dressed in navy so much as a baby, it's a lovely colour. 👍

Why do you have concerns?

SpeckledyBanana Sun 13-Nov-16 20:02:33

My DS had a grey pram, DD's was red. I would say both were neutral colours TBH.

Lj8893 Sun 13-Nov-16 20:03:15

I have a girl and used a pinkish pram for her. I would happily have used it for a boy as I liked the colour and it covered stains well

thebloodycat Sun 13-Nov-16 20:03:42

Jesus Christ sorry I asked. I want a neutral one. I don't want pink if it's a girl and I don't want light blue for a boy. I'm wanting a none gender specific colour!

ByeByeLilSebastian Sun 13-Nov-16 20:04:20

My boy has a purple pushchair smile

Seriously though navy is great. It goes with lots of colours and really makes a bright pink pop imo. Very stylish.

OnwardsAndUpwardsYo Sun 13-Nov-16 20:04:22

Our son has loads of pink stuff, loads. Sometimes the pink item has been cheaper than the same blue/green item, so for financial and common sense reasons we've got the pink. He's also the happy recipient of many hand-me-downs.
