Thoughts on multiple baby showers?

Did you have a baby shower for each one of your pregnancies? I am on my 3rd pregnancy, I have 1 boy and 1 girl and this babies gender is is being kept a secret until he/she is born. My mother is against throwing me one again, she said there is no point when I just had 2 in the last 6 years. I still have all of my babies big items but I feel like I should throw some type of celebration for baby… advice?

Gender reveal? Lol only option I can think of wait till like 35 weeks to do it

for #3 I did a diaper sprinkle thing.

I have had 5 kids and pregnant with my 6th and never once had a baby shower or any family who bought anything for the babies. If you still have all the big items I would do a diaper party where people bring u diapers and wipes

If you want a party then have one!

Every baby should be celebrated. Maybe a “sip and see” once baby is born? People can come over, visit with mom and baby and bring a gift if they feel like it. That’s what I’m thinking for my 2nd since I had a shower 2 only 2 years ago.

Some throw a “sprinkle” which is just a small get together, no gifts expected, maybe some diapers.

I think every baby should be celebrated. Just MY opinion though. - why not have a diaper/wipe party?

I agree with your mother. No… multiple showers are tacky and greedy! If someone wants to bring something for the baby they will do so on their own.

I had 2 baby showers. If I get pregnant again then I’ll have another one. I see nothing wrong with it at all.

I didn’t have a baby shower for either pregnancy.

I only had one baby shower with the first one. we had a diaper shower with the other kids instead.

Then throw a celebration, make it clear that that’s all it is, because most women having baby showers nowadays do it to get gifts, even throwing them for themselves. That’s not a celebration, that’s being greedy. People are supposed to throw it for the mom.

If you want a shower but don’t need anything like clothes and whatnot …do a diaper drive type thing …everyone who attends bring a case of diapers and or wipes. My bfs aunt did this for her “shower” but she asked for diapers and a book for baby instead of gifts :slight_smile:

I have 3 kids. I didn’t with the 3rd. The grandparents gave the baby something, and a few close friends, but that wasn’t because i asked them to. I was something that choice to do on their own. But we had really everything that we needed. Ours where really close together. So, for me it didn’t feel right to have that many so close together, and I really didn’t see the need for having one.

I love the idea of a sprinkle! Or even a shower if it’s been awhile between kids! Pregnancy is hard celebrate the baby and yourself!!

You could do a diaper party or something different along those lines.

We did a sparkle/ gender reveal and a diaper party
