  • I had one before with my first. After my second was born I had a home coming bbq instead of a shower. People still brought gifts though, even though I didn't ask them too. So it was nice! And it wasn't gender oriented either. Everyone was welcome.

  • I had them for all and if you know the sex of the baby do it before if not I would wait :)

  • When I had my first son, my shower was actually after because he was born 3 weeks early. My girlfriends at work had one for me when I was preggers with third, because he came 11 years later and they knew I had nothing in the baby department! LOL...

  • It's okay to do it either way, but before the baby gets you stuff you'll use b4 the baby comes. Diaper parties are great too! When we had our dau, I had enough diapers to last a year- and wipes for 4 mths! Plus little swimmers.

  • before the baby came (at 7 months). One given by family for our first and one given by new friends in a new area we had moved to for the second.
