baby shower with second pregnancy?

There is another question about this...and it is something i had been wondering...When I worked some of the women in the company said things like you shouldn't have a shower for your 2nd or 3rd child and so on...I guess my question is should I have a shower for my 2nd? My daughter is almost 7 so they are going to be pretty far apart...What do ya'll think? I know I sure don't have any of the baby stuff left over from when my daughter was a baby...I figured it would be appropriate since they were so far apart...but heck I don't know.

  • a babyshower should be a celebration of a child. i think that no matter what pregnacy it is, there should still be a baby shower for it have a baby shower and enjoy it momma

  • it doesn't matter what number of pregnancy you're in. you're pregnant which means you need baby stuff even though it's just plain diapers and baby wipes. have the baby shower and enjoy the presents!!! :)

  • Go for it, I don't see anything wrong with it!! I had a baby shower with my second pregnancy, I was having a boy and I had a 3 year old daughter. I had given away almost all of the baby stuff I had, I gave them to a friend who needed them really bad.

  • where i live moms typically only have a baby shower for their first baby.
    i had one for my second, though and i agree that it's a celebration of the new life. it shouldn't matter what number!

  • I don't mind more than one shower as long as there is a significant age difference, or if it is more of a welcome baby shower.

  • I had baby showers with all 3 of my girls. The older two were 3 years apart and when my youngest was born they were 9 and 6. Trust me,I had to start all over LOL_

  • I had a shower for my 2nd but only because my first 2 kids were 9 yrs apart. I have had a 3rd and didn't have one nor will I have one for my 4th.

  • What? No baby shower? I don't understand that philosophy. Go for it! Celebrate! And get much needed baby gear for your new pumpkin.
    My son will just be 15 months when his new sibling gets here, and I still plan to have a baby shower.. in fact, 2! One on the east coast with my family and one on the west with my husband's!
