    I'll be honest with the one. I think it's selfish. The first baby shower is obviously something most people have. And at this one, they usually receive everything they need for the baby. When you get pregnant again, I don't think you should have another one! What happened to all of the things from your first one? Even if you have a different gender, I still see no point behind it.

    Most of my friends have had 2nd or 3rd baby showers and I don't go. I didn't have a 2nd one with my 2nd child. I just think it's asking for a hand out and I think it's rude.

    I guess if someone is offering to throw it for you, then whatever. And maybe if you are remarried and have different family now, or different guests coming. Other than that, I just think it's rude and I wouldn't do it.

    I think it is OK to have another baby shower if you had a baby really early in life and then another one way later in life - the children are many years apart and you are starting from square one again.

    I think its perfectly fine for woman to have as many baby showers as they do babys why shouldn't u celebrate every child!!! Do ppl not love their 2nd, 3rd or so on as much as they did their first. As for the ppl that think its selfish they don't have to come!!! Im sure you will still have plenty of ppl there, and good luck with the rest of y0ur pregnancy!!

    I personally think if someone plans it or you have welcome baby shower, it should be fine. I didn't get a 2nd baby shower it didn't bother me as much.

    In my family we have a shower for each and every baby. It's a celebration. If the person has what they need than we just bring diapers and wipes( you can never have too many of those.) We have food and play games. It's not about the gifts and no one has to bring one. We also share a lot of the baby stuff with each other. Clothes, swings, toys, etc. are usually handed to the next in line.

    I think its perfectly okay no matter how many babies you have or how many years in between!

    A Baby Shower is a Celebration of a Baby on the way. Of course it should be celebrated with every soon to arrive baby.

    A lot of people I know that have had a baby shower with their 2nd, 3rd so on did the diaper theme. Only asked for diapers as a gift and gift was optional. I think I would have another baby shower if I had a second. My first baby shower wasn't much and I didn't get anything for my kiddo other then a stroller which I still have... Plus I'm not going to hang on to his old stuff for over 5 years lugging it around from state to state every time we have to move. I gave all his old clothes to one of my friends that didn't have enough money but was pregnant to help her out. I don't think of baby showers as a way to get gifts and get whatever u can out of your guests! There's so much more to it! I like the games and food (yummy!) And with mine... Neither of those had a part... Just a few guests and a cake.

    i feel like if your just havin baby showers to get stuff then yes its selfish and just wrong but i know most people dont plan their baby showers, family and friends plan them... and i feel like baby showers are a celebration to a new life if you have one for every baby then thats wonderful, babies are a gift in themselves. Plus i have been to a lot of 2nd and so on baby showers and we were asked to not bring gifts.... We sat around and played games ate food and just had a lot of fun... Baby showers dont have to be about getting stuff... but if some people want to think that then fine they dont have to come and they can miss out on the fun...
