Can you have a baby shower for your second?

So is it a thing to do a baby shower for your second baby? I just had my daughter Aug 2019. Or is that a no-no? I just found out I’m expecting. Of course I know it’s early to be thinking about it.

You can have a bay shower for every kid. Just like she said above me. It’s a celebration of life

I had one for each
My 2nd pregnancy was twins … I never thought you couldn’t do a 2nd shower

I had one for my first girl and my first boy.

I say do whatever you want. If it’s the same gender then you could do a diaper party if you still have all the clothes and stuff from the previous child.

I had one for my second. I didn’t throw it myself, but others threw it for me. Mine are 4.5 years apart, though. I think every baby should be celebrated

I feel for your first girl and first boy are fine

I was literally just googling this lol

Every new life and the mother creating it deserves a celebration

You can do what you want
People will or won’t attend. Some of the older gen will be like why have multiple as you have the stuff for a 2nd kid

It’s been many years since I had my children (I’m a grandma now lol!) but when my generation had their second (or third - I had three) we did have another shower. Maybe not as big. We called it a “Sprinkle.” :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I did a small sprinkle with only very close family and friends since I have two girls but they are six years apart in age.

Ofcourse you can each baby is worth celebrating. I had one but I said I do not want gifts I just wanted to have fun doing games and eating yummy food hehe
I had the best day ever I did get a massive amount of gifts which I was so greatful for as my first born was a boy and at that time 8.5years old so we had nothing.
I I honestly loved having the lounge decorated , doing the funny games guessing things and eating all the little snacks and sweets.
It was a perfect day :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
You do you!!

I had one for my second and they were both girls :woman_shrugging: they are exactly 2 1/2 years apart so they were born in complete opposite season so a lot of clothes from the first didn’t work for the second, AND we’re a military family and have moved 3 times since my first daughter was born so we had to downsize a lot :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

I’ve been invited to “Sprinkles” (instead of a “shower). I usually think it’s OK if it’s for a different gender than the first… but to each their own! If someone else offers to throw you one, go for it!

I called it a baby gathering as i had all the same gender but mainly asked for diapers and wipes and baby essentials

I had one for all 3! I told my family not to do one for my third because it was 13 months after my second and they still had a little get together where everyone mostly bought diapers, wipes, bath stuff. Every baby deserves a celebration

I didn’t. I figured my kids were close enough together (2 years apart exactly) that I would have most everything I’d need. I stocked up on diapers & wipes— bought a box with every paycheck. And ended up lucky both my kids ended up the same gender
I probably would have had a Baby Sprinkle if the gender was different, but I never was a fan of parties where I was front n center

If you want one… Go for it!!
