baby shower for 2nd baby?

My son is 10 months old and I just found out I am pregnant again, I am actually excited. I hope its a girl this time, if not hat is ok too. I was wondering if its ok to have another baby shower? I mean I already gave away most of my sons baby things like his newborn clothes and baby bath, and infant car seat since we have a convertible one now, so i pretty much need a car seat and clothes and probably other stuff too, is it wrong for me to have another baby shower or should i just try and find stuff used on craigslist and stuff?

  • sorry I think every baby deserves one, I don't go by the old fashioned way. I mean come on it's a party? should a child only have one birthday??? ;) I would not only have a party I would register to put stuff on as cheap as outlet covers to more expensive things that people can buy so they have options. I think it's silly to not have one.

  • If its a girl Go ahead but because you already have boy people will expected that you keep that stuff I would just try craigslist n local stores like goodwill n stuff like that goodluck & God bless! (hope its a girl)

  • I guess etiquette says that it's ok if it's the opposite sex but Hey if your friends and family want to throw you one, go for it...if it was my sister I probably would. I love baby showers....

  • im having a second baby shower even though my son is only 15 months old and i am having another boy. we already pretty much have everything so we're just having a baby shower/open house bbq, totally casual, men invited too lol and we're not expecting anything. why wouldnt you want to celebrate each baby? i say go for it, either way.

  • it depends on ur friends & family. if u have someone who wants to throw u one, and ur friends and fam would be excited, then yeah. but if u get negative responses like oh ur just being greedy (yeah someppl say that) then i would go with no. i saved every last bit of baby stuff, all the clothes and everything cuz if i have another boy, i cant afford to go buy all new stuff. but if ur having a girl this time, a lot of family will jump at the chance to be able to buy pink frilly stuff this time around! if its another boy though, i would say no
