  • I had my 1st baby shower 3 months before I had my baby. I liked having them early so that I could return any double gifts and get the things I still needed/wanted for my baby.

  • In February, at a time that is convenient for the hostess.

  • The weekend before or after Feb. 20.....usually a month before baby comes so you know you have all of the essentials! =]

  • ya i would say like 4-6 weeks ahead of time. you dont want to have to return and find new things if you have to or rush around if you didnt get everything you needed when your 9mos preg. With my daughter I was due June 14th and had mine the last week in april. That was perfect timing for me.

  • I've been told its best 2 months or so before your due date cause as you know baby could come whenever they want. My dd was due march 3rd so I had my shower the middle of jan.

  • Just depends. I am going to have my baby shower 3 months or 2 1/2 months before. I actually had my first pre mature ( was in the hospital on bed rest for two weeks then finally had him at 35 weeks). I had to call off my baby shower then for some reason the people who were putting on the shower didn't notify everyone of the second shower after the baby was born and not many people showed up at all. I was pretty sad I couldn't share the birth of my son with more of my family and friends. I am going to make sure just in case this baby comes early that I WILL have a baby shower BEFORE baby comes :) Honestly it is all in when YOU want your shower.
