Mum spends ?3000 on wrong sex baby clothes

A mum-to-be spent ?3,000 on pink baby accessories after being told she was expecting girl – only to give birth to a boy.

Sarah Sharples and her husband Lee splurged out on ?500 worth of clothes, ?1,000 in the nursery and ?900 on a pram after medical staff told her she was carrying a girl, but just weeks later she popped out bouncing baby Joseph.

Sarah said: “I couldn’t understand it when the midwife said it was a boy.

“All our scans had confirmed it was a girl and I had everything prepared in pink.

“We had picked her name, Lily-Mae, and had the room decorated with her name stencilled across the pink feature wall.

“We even had personalised blankets as gifts from family and friends.

“We looked at each other and couldn’t believe that Lily-Mae was actually a boy.”

However, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the couple as they’d bought most of the items from supermarket chain ASDA, so they were able to return them.

Lee said: “There was so much to change and friends and family have been so helpful.

“We had bought most of the clothes from ASDA and they were fantastic and let us exchange everything.

“But we still have a lot of pink things that we can’t return and so we’re just keeping them and hoping, at some stage, we have a girl.”
