What are your thoughts on co-ed baby showers?

I'm having a summer baby, so we're having a bbq. There will be women and men, kids, my SO's nephews, and so on. if we get gifts we get gifts, but at least we'll be celebrating baby :)

I see nothing wrong with it. My DH's aunt threw me my first baby shower and I told her I wanted DH to be there so invite whoever! Dad has just as big a part in my kids lives as I do, so why not allow him to be at the baby shower for the baby he helped make? Saturday is my baby shower for this one...and again, Daddy will be there =]

I think it depends on the people, honestly.  If the guys are into it and can be mature about it, I think they're a great thing!  However, my cousin had a co-ed baby shower and it was a disaster...the guys didn't pay any attention to her and her husband, were being rude, and ignoring the fact that this was supposed to be about welcoming the baby...one of the guys even (quite loudly) kept asking when it was going to be over so he could go home.  It was obnoxious.

I agree, I wish I had a co-ed baby shower for my first born but it wasn't as popular then. I'm new to the cafe world whats "DH" stand for? lol.

Mine is on Saturday, Jan 23rd, and it's coed. My Fiance has a lot more friends than I do in this area, and we figured if we invited his friends then we would get more stuff for the baby :p.

Don't take this the wrong way ladies, but I'm not much of a female fan so I'm all for co-ed baby showers... I don't like the cutsie games, I like the idea of EVERYONE getting together to celebrate the baby.

I think they are a good idea, but my husband says he would rather not go.  .  He said while I am at the baby shower he is going to be at home making me dinner. lol.
