I'm the same. When I learned DS's gender I was glad to plan for a boy b/c I felt like I could put a girl in boy stuff but not the other way around. Weird.

If this baby is a boy he will have to wear the Girly diapers I have... I figure they will be covered up, serve their purpose, and if I wouldn't have bought them and baby turns out to be a girl I woulda been bummed to only have boy/GN type diapers.

Re: Any mamas put purple diaper on boys?

purple is the colour of kings, pink used to be a boy colour. Both are 100% fine for boys, babies and men. Jcrew sells both colours for men, so why can't a baby who could care less wear it?

My first was a beautiful baby girl and we bought EVERYTHING pink... Diaper covers, butterfly papasan swing, you name it we had it in pink! We were excited and didn't care too much about what future babies would look like.

Now we have a baby boy and he is enormous so he didn't wear the newborn or smaller dipes too long and a lot of them were pinks and purples. He has outgrown almost all of the diapers I had for her and he's only 9 months now so as I buy bigger ones I get them in boyish colors when I can. I don't go crazy over it though. He rocks his pink and purple bumkins at daycare all the time and I put him in rainbow striped baby legs the other day and really got some looks! Lol...

Most purples are gender neutral for sure

My DH's favorite color is purple
Both of my boys rock purple & have worn pink.....I kinda think any color is gender neutral depending. A pink golf tee looks great on my toddler

I don't have any purple diapers, but my boys do have 2 zinnia flip covers. I also have two pairs of longies with purple. DS1 went through a Dora phase at 2 and all the Dora stuff was for girls, so he had a pink pair of Dora pajamas with butterflies and flowers. DH hated him wearing those. I didn't care. DS1 also has hot pink sheets for his bed that he picked out. And we are done having kids, so this is the only chance I get for girly stuff with 2 boys.

My son wore the GroVia purple and maybe a few others. My husband doesn't care though. I just got him a hot pink trainer because it was a good deal. (i was actually still a little shocked that it was ok)

Yes. Not just diapers either. He doesn't wear pink or peach or pastel kind of colors because *I* don't like them but he's wears plenty of purple.
