Did you have a baby shower for all of your babies???

I was curious because I had a shower with my first and I wasnt sure if people did it for the others as well???

  • Nope, only the first. I'm old school enough that I think its tacky - but I know more and more its becoming the norm.

  • Traditionally our family only does a shower for the first baby, and then if you're going to have more, then you keep what you have.... Sadly that didn't really work out to well for us. There's 6 yrs between the 1st and 2nd, so it was like starting over.. We just bought everything we need, and didn't have a shower. I felt funny about having a shower because of the circumstances...

  • I've never had a single baby shower and I have 5 kids. No one thought to throw me one. Other than a couple things (pack n play, swing and some clothes) that people got us with our first almost 11 years ago we have bought everything for our kids.

  • there is 10 years between my kids so i have a new group of friends since i moved across the country during that time. i had a friend offer to throw me one with my second but i declined for a bunch of reasons. I think its tacky if you have your kids close in age and hang around the same group of ppl. I don't think its a big deal if you have a new group of ppl or a huge age gap between kids
