So I was planning on getting the Chicco Double Stroller which is Red and Dark Grey and then I have a friend who is going to give me her infant car seat which is grey and orange - I have a son now and expecting another son and I thought the colors are fine for boys - my in laws say its not okay for boys to have those colors

Whats your opinion?

I think those colors are perfect for boys!! In fact Adelaides infant seat (Britax Chaperone) is Red, Grey and Black. I think that is too boyish. SOOOO I am going to try to find a more girly cover from Britax for her. I think your in laws need to get over it, OR like PP said they can buy you something they feel more "suitable".

I fail to see how red and orange are inappropriate boy colours, unless there's some meaning behind it (e.g. in some cultures, red symbolises death...but then they'd be inappropriate colours, period).

I think those colors are perfect for a boy... The only colors I'd say no to for my boy would be pink and purple!

I don't know why they think grey/orange or grey/red are not for boys, i think they are just the right colors for a little boy, if u love it, i say go for it.

I would definitely think of the orange and gray as being boy. The red and gray could go either way for me.
