Hubby cuz had a baby like a month ago they had a baby shower for the baby but we just got something in the mail sying It's A Boy and they are going to have another baby shower for the baby but when he is 6 months.


I told them I was not going to go cause 6 months late will be his B-day So what I want to know do ppl have baby shower when there baby is 6 months?

  • Baby showers are for before the baby is born. Not 6 months after.

  • Showers are for before and they already had one anyway. They sound super greedy to me.

  • Well....in my family baby showers are considered bad luck. Gifts are given at the christening and no showers are held.

    But no matter when they're held, they're always optional for the invitee. If you don't want to go, then don't.

  • That's a bit insane.. I've heard of people having babyshowers before and then a welcoming party after baby is born (But soon after not 6 months after). Seems like they just want to have a bunch of stuff given to them. If I were you i'd just get them a card and say congrats.

  • I agree with you. Baby shower is enough. No need for two. If they *need* supplies, then they need to look into other means of support rather than expecting gifts from family and friends every six months.

  • Talk about being greedy. Baby showers in an of themselves are tacky. Having parties so that others can supply your baby's needs? Come on now!!

  • Nothing wrong with a shower before the baby is born.
    Nothing wrong with a shower shorly after baby is born or brought home.
    Nothing wrong with a shower for each child.

    Two showers for one baby? Ok, that's a bit odd unless there are extenuating circumstances.

  • That is insane. I love the idea of having a shower after the baby is born. But to have two is very greedy. Why not just wait to the kid is 1 and have a b-day party?

  • so this person is having 2 showers? that is greedy. I had one shower before my son was born. If I invited people to another one, I'd get my head chopped off by a bunch of women or they just would think i'm an idiot. lol. You are not a hater. these people should stick with one shower.
