My cousin is pregnant with #4 ... and it has only been a little over 4 years since she had her first ( first baby and first baby shower) ......
In our family we only have a shower for the 1st baby ( like me and my other cousins and aunts) - except there was one time when my aunt had a second shower when she had her 3rd child -- but it was a surprise baby and was 14 years younger than her last baby lol...and now her.
So not only do I think its rude to have a 4th babyshower in less than 5 years ...but she also expects us to only buy the things she has already picked out ( she has tried this with all the others) .... we all told her after the last one there would be no more baby showers but of course we got the invite today ( yes she is throwing it herself just like #2 and #3) ... she also included what we should bring to the party ( i got veggie tray + a gift that she has already pre-selected) ....I am seriously thinking of boycotting it. what would you do ?

Every child deserves the same attention and recognition as the 1st child. As well as deserving their own new things. All my life, everyone who had multiple babies had multiple showers. Only in the past few years have I started hearing rants about more than one shower beyond the 1st child. I guess the "In" thing now is the 1st child gets all the glory & the following children just get the hand-me-downs from day 1. Nothing wrong with hand-me-downs. Don't get me wrong. But, doesn't every baby deserve the same attention & new beginning?
