Cute gender neutral clothes for every child

Gender-neutral clothing for children is hardly anything new. Look back at clothing options for children through the centuries and, often, the focus was put entirely on function and not at all on gender or gender-specific fashion. However, somewhere along the line, nurseries became more gender-oriented, and, as such, children’s clothing became highly polarizing. Girl’s clothing often now trends pink, frilly, sparkly, and sweet, while boy’s clothing goes rugged and tough. 

But gender-neutral children’s clothing is making a comeback, and for a good reason. Sometimes the most stylish children’s clothing are the gender-neutral options. With plain colors, simple patterns, and attractive cuts, gender-neutral clothing for children is refined and sophisticated—and often more appealing to parents interested in styling their child in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

If you don’t have a child who’s really into picking their own clothes yet and want that gender-specific clothing (whatever gender-specific clothing that might be, boy’s or girl’s), you may want to check out some of these gender-neutral clothing brands. 


Bitte offers a range of baby and toddler items, not only cute gender-neutral clothes. Mostly everything comes in an earth tone; think rich greens, dusty teals, and terra cotta browns. The gender-neutral toddler clothes look so comfy and soft while still being stylish at the same time. You’ll likely wish Bitte made adult clothes as well.

While you’re on the Bitte site, make sure to check out the non-clothing items available, including toys, books, and nursery decor. 

Finn + Emma

This adorable brand offers clothing made from organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes. In addition to solid-color basic items, you can also find graphic tops with fun sayings like, “A product of quarantine” or “I’ll have a bottle of the house white.” 

While there is an option on the site to search for girl- or boy-specific clothing items, there’s also a neutral search function (and even the girl- and boy-specific clothing items aren’t really that polarizing; you’ll just find some dresses and a little more pink in the girls’ section). 

Tutti Frutti Clothing 

If you like the idea of gender-neutral clothing, but you don’t want to dress your child up as if they’re getting ready for a Vogue photoshoot, go with Tutti Frutti Clothing. This brand will outfit you with kids’ and toddlers’ clothes that lean more traditional, with lots of bright colors, bold patterns, cartoon characters, and fun sayings, but without the gender constructs. 


For a brand with real star power, check out Celinununu. Céline Dion is one of the brand’s co-founders, and the brand’s mission is to “inspire your children to be free and find their own individuality through clothes.” 

The clothing is on the pricier side, but it’s certainly cool. You can find wear for toddlers and adolescences, including t-shirts, hoodies, onesies, vests, slippers, sweaters, and more. 

Quirkie Kids 

Quirkie Kids is another super-fun kids’ clothing brand with gender-neutral items. The brand says it believes “that there are no boys things and no girl things; just things.” Founded by a mom who was having difficulty finding clothing to match her son’s interests, Quirkie offers a limited line of fun toddler tees, primarily, all with cute designs and sayings to match a range of personalities—whether it’s a tee with a bubble gum-blowing panda or one that lists out the ingredients for a spinach and banana smoothie. 

Mitz Kids 

All of Mitz Kids’ clothing items are available for boys and girls, toddlers, and adolescents. Tops, leggings, and dresses abound. One of the coolest t-shirts (and one of the top sellers) available on the site is a dinosaur tee with fabric spikes running up and down the back. You can also find a similar rainbow t-shirt with a fabric cloud running down the spine. 

Don’t box in your kids’ creativity

While it can be all too easy to head for the girls’ or boys’ section, the next time you go to the department store with kids’ clothes shopping in mind, hold off. There’s no reason to limit your child’s creativity, whether they’re a newborn or a young adolescent. Let them explore and experience fashion in a way that makes the most sense for them. It’s a decision you won’t regret.

5 easy ways to solve bottle refusal from a breastfed baby
Bottle refusal and breastfeeding: 5 tips for families looking to overcome this stressful situatiion
A parent bottle feeding a little baby.

Breast/chestfeeding can be tricky, particularly at first. It’s challenging to get a latch and navigate near-constant feedings.
It can also be an incredible bonding experience. Breast/chestfeeding is about more than food. The snuggles, the gappy grins, and the glances only the parent and baby share are moments to treasure. Sometimes, babies love nursing so much that they don’t want a bottle.
Though flattering — especially if the baby and parent got off to a challenging start — bottle refusal can also be stressful. The lactating parent may need to return to work or want to go on a date night, and there’s no shame in either. Baby needs to eat, though.
It’s possible to work through bottle refusal in a breastfed baby gently and compassionately. Here are some tips.

Practice before the big day
The first day at daycare or time with a babysitter — even if it’s another family member — will be stressful for the parent and baby. You want to avoid adding in another wrinkle by having the temporary caretaker introduce a bottle.
If you know you are returning to work or attending a wedding on a specific day, start introducing one bottle every couple of days beginning three weeks before.
Ideally, the introduction of a bottle to breastfeeding babies happens at least three to four weeks after the baby is born and direct breastfeeding is established. However, that’s not always possible, particularly in the U.S., which lacks federal paid family leave.

“Breastfeeding is natural,” the pamphlets say.
Except, sometimes, breastfeeding can feel anything but natural. In the United States, CDC data shows that more than 80% of infants start out by receiving some human milk. However, only about 55% still receive any human milk, and less than 25% are exclusively breastfed by six months.
Why does that matter? The World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend exclusive breastfeeding for six months and continuation for two years or more. Breastfeeding benefits the parent and baby, including bonding and reduced disease risk.
To be clear, whether you feed your child human milk or formula, you’re a good parent. However, many people want to provide human milk to their children. Challenges like lack of support, perceived low milk supply, and pain can cause early weaning.
Lactation consultants can help people work through these challenges instead of stopping prematurely. Here’s what you should know about these professionals.

What is a lactation consultant?
A lactation consultant is a nursing provider who has received training in lactation. In today’s world, medicine is so specialized. For example, during pregnancy, a birthing person will see an OB/GYN. When the baby is born, they’ll go to a pediatrician.
However, breastfeeding is a dyad, often the mom and her baby. Lactation professionals know how to help both with issues during breastfeeding.
