  • If you want. He might be bored. Are you together? By your wording it doesn't sound like it.

  • Sure, if you want him to, why not? My dh came to our baby shower. Other men in the family came too.

  • Does he want to attend? I had my uncles and male cousins at mine cause they like eating. It think its a fun experience when they men are there

  • If he wants to. I'm not sure I know many men who would want to do that, unless it was a big family event. In my family the guys are there for a lot of things, because like Cladiomom, the men just like the food and socialization together.....they don't hang out for the gifts and games. But what we do around my home town is this...a Diaper Party. They guys have it as the same time as the ladies. They bring boxes of diapers and drink beer LOL. Gets you all stocked up on diapers!!!! Unless you are using cloth, maybe then they can help pay for them.

  • Sure if its a couples shower, My cousin went to one of the few showers thrown for his first baby. He was bored, but excited that he got to be a part of it. If he wants to go, then let him. If you dont want him to, then dont let him and tell him that. Its ultimately yours and his choice!
