    Oh god yes.

    He is a she. She wears a pink hat and coat, she hasnt masses of hair bit still looks like a girl. I told someone once 'his' name was Jessica. They looked at me as though I was daft. Grrrrrr, people!

    Get one of those mam dummies that say its a girl, or its a boy.

    I got asked "how old is she" the other day in Mothercare (you think they would learn!). You can't help but reply slightly narked saying "HE is 7 weeks old". grrrr :evil:

    Mason got this alot more when he was older, just because he has lots of blonde hair!

    He'd be wearing blue clothes or combats etc and old ladies would still say "oooh hasn't she got lovely hair?"
    I can be annoying but it's one of those things you just get used to. Like my next-door neighbour calling himm Nathan all the time...although I did point it out to her after a little while LOL

    I have it the other way round, I always take Rubie out with a pink hat and coat, and a pink blanket, but this week 2 old people have asked if she is a boy??? Bizarre :?

    Like Se-ren, if that makes sense. Its difficult to write phonetically but it is kind of like it is spelt. I can understand why some people think it is Sharon as they do sound kind of similar but it sounds nothing like Serena.

    I get it, I always thought that but you never know, some names are pronounced nothing like they are spelled. It's a lovely name, is it Irish?

    Getting baby's sex mixed up is not really an issue for me...I dress Naomi in whatever colour comes up next in the pile, be it red, blue, yellow or pink - and I can never tell whether a baby is a boy or girl at first.

    What gets ME is people referring to baby as IT. There was a ward sister in the hospital who referred to Naomi as "it" the whole time and I got quite narked with her, though I didn't show it.

    I only find it annoying when it's pretty darn obvious. For example, frilly pink dress or just decked out in blue or pink. It should be pretty easy to tell then.
