 Google Baby Shower and this is what you get:

Traditionally, baby showers were given only for the family's first child, and only women were invited. The original intent was for women to share wisdom and lessons on the art of becoming a mother.[citation needed] Over time, it has become common to hold them for subsequent or adoptedchildren. It is not uncommon for a parent to have more than one baby shower, such as one with friends and another with co-workers.

Hopefully this clears up all the misunderstood people on here that dont get what a baby shower is supposed to be about and for....it probably wont but if it does thank god, because some of you have blown my mind on this topic...smh

So if you're invited to a teen's baby shower, just don't go.  I think everyone should have a shower.

When we have had teen moms at my church we always still collect gifts and $. I think one time we got more than 1,000 dollars. So she got the gifts, just not the shower :)

I dont and no I dont agree, if you are a teenager dependent on your parents, the parents should get the baby and the SHOWER not the teenager

bridal shower is about the bride

Baby shower is about the MOM and her baby
