A mom writes in asking for advice about buying baby essentials. She is currently 12 weeks pregnant, and she and her husband are currently having a disagreement. She wants to start buying baby stuff now because she likes to be prepared. Her husband, however, wants to wait to start buying baby things until she is at least six months pregnant. She asks other moms when they started stocking up on baby goods, and below, the community shares their advice.
A mom writes in asking for advice about baby showers. She says that her family does not get along with her husband’s family, and therefore they have both decided not to involve them in their baby shower in order to avoid drama.

See what advice the community has for this baby shower scenario below.
A mom writes in asking for advice about having a second baby shower. She says she is expecting her second child, a boy, this summer, and is wondering what she should do about throwing a shower. She is not especially interested in gifts but might want to throw a gathering to celebrate the baby’s arrival anyway. But it seems many have told her that having a second baby shower is unnecessary, causing her to feel bad.
Shay Mitchell has been living her best life while pregnant – she’s rocked baby bump photo shoots, had an amazing Power Rangers-themed gender reveal and sampled some pretty interesting pregnancy cravings with her Pretty Little Lies costar Ian Harding (or gross, depending on your taste buds). Now, she’s perhaps outdone herself with her baby shower, hosted at an LA strip club.
