I thought moms only got one baby shower until there was years and years between children. Has this changed?

I've heard the same thing but also know moms who have had a shower for each kid.

I didn't get a shower for any of my kids!

My daughter just had a shower for her third child, first boy. I don't know, in my day it was 1st baby only, now so many are having them with every one. Technically, since the mom-to-be isn't the one who is supposed to be throwing the shower, if she has friends who want to do that for her, what is she to do? (tongue in cheek)

Honestly, I think every baby deserves to be celebrate, with or without gifts.

I only had one shower, but a 2nd would've been super helpful to us since our 1st was still using everything the 2nd needed. We barely even received a "congrats" from family when the 2nd was born. It sucked to feel like she didn't matter.

I plan on having a "shower" for all of my babies... but it is more a get together type thing.

I agree.. I dont see any reason why you should have only one.  The shower is a celebration for a baby to come and fun.  Every baby deserves its own party!

I refused all offers of showers; I hate the idea of expecting gifts.
