Do you have a baby shower for each of your babies??

I thought that the proper etiquette for baby showers was that you have one shower, with your first pregnancy, and that was it. Seems that today most women have showers for each of their pregnancies.. is this proper now, or it is just something that people do? Did you have one with your second and subsequent pregnancies?

  • I agree, I don't see anything wrong with having more than one baby shower.

  • Every child deserves to be recognized and have a shower, or a baby meet and greet day, I'm on my second and I'm having something for her too! It's only fair.

  • OP here: MommaRox, that is kind of how I saw it, too, I'm just curious because I was told that I shouldn't have a shower with number two because it isn't proper...

  • The "only one shower rule" is outdated,I had one for both of my pregnancies, I think every baby should be celebrated.

  • it depends, i guess. i would think it's kind of rude/selfish to have a baby shower for your second, 'cause to me it seems that showers are more to help parents get off on a good foot with their first baby. my SO & i got every single thing we needed at the shower we had recently. people generally buy things the parents will need for the baby before the baby comes at a shower. maybe a meet the baby party a few months after he/she is born would be better. then you would probably just get clothes, picture frames, that kinda stuff.

  • its not being selfish or rude, its that way if you have one for one and not the other..I personally dont see the deal of it.. who cares how many babyshowers u have, in my oppinion, its rude and selfish if you have more than 1 baby shower for one child...thats too much..

  • I think it depends on if the babies are the same gender, how many people are gonna put their son in hand-me-down pink dresses? Also how far apart your pregnancies are. Not many people would still have their baby stuff after 5 years. But I agree that a baby shower is about celebrating the new life, not just "getting stuff". I am pregnant with my second baby and they are gonna be 13 months apart. I will probably have another shower whether I have another boy or a girl. My son will still be using his crib, crib set, high chair...etc. Plus you always need diapers and wipes. But I would say have a smaller, family only baby shower for your next baby and put on the invite no gift nessesary.
