How many baby showers did you have for one child?

My MIL and my step mom are both throwing me a baby shower separate. I feel selfish for having 2.

  • If they don't get along or live in different areas, people will understand. Don't sweat it.

  • I am in the same situation pretty much. i dont feel selfish at all. we have very little money to get anything. im 35 weeks along and still have nothing. this is my second daughter and i gave my daughters stuff to my sister and now im stuck with nothing at all. so im having to because we need everything.

  • I'm only having one, but thats because its going to be HUGE, both sides of my family are going. If it didn't look odd inviting the same people twice, I'd have 2 baby showers. You're going to need as much help as possible, thats why baby showers exisit, to help mothers prepare for the baby. Don't feel selfish about it, its not really for you anyway, its for a baby, and everyone loves babies!
