I'm not by any means being rude. But I have babies, I'm not that old. But where I come from you get one baby shower. You don't get one every time you are pregnant. If you are planning on possibly having another child you save those big things. My boys are 14 months apart, when I got pregnant with the second my SIL got pregnant a month later. She already had a 3 yr old. She wanted another shower (mainly because she and my brother got rid of all the baby stuff....due to their dimwittedness). But my mom and other family members told her it would be rude an offensive to have another shower and ask for things again. We would like a third baby but not in the next year, but know enough to save all the things. Now, I can see if you child is older, like 5 and you find out you are pregnant having another shower. But lately on here, there are questions about the second shower. Am I old fashioned or living in a small world LOL
IMO to want ANOTHER BIG shower just because you got rid of your baby stuff - well BOO HOO for you. If you know you want more kids, SAVE THE STUFF. You should not expect people to provide EVERYTHING for you for EVERY KID. I saved everything from my shower for my first. I had it to use for my second. Yes, I even had kids of the opposite sex.
I do think a sprinkle for a second or third child is cool, for diapers or clothes (opposite sex). I don't agree with HUGE SHOWERS for every child, that's all.

What's the big deal. Why do people think they get to make rules for other people? If you get invited to a shower and you don't want to buy a present then don't go. Don't tell the people or other people that they are rude. That would make you rude.
