Second Baby Shower
Is it appropriate to have a baby shower for your second child?
Most new moms are so excited to have their first baby shower
but feel somewhat uncomfortable having a baby shower for a second child. Although tradition in the past has scorned at throwing a second baby shower, times are changing. Look at weddings. Many couples throw a larger wedding the second time around with all the trimmings and 10 attendants in tuxes and bridesmaids dresses. Why not a second baby shower
? If someone offers to throw you a baby shower for your second child, suggest doing something out of the ordinary.
What about having everyone bring a casserole dish for the freezer. Once the baby is born, who has time to cook? Or think of some other baby shower
theme such as books, music, or educational toys and have the guests bring a related gift. Baby supplies like diapers, wipes, shampoos, baby oil, and other baby essentials could be dropped in one big unusual container as the guests arrive for the mom to take home. Or even better, bring a small gift for the mom! Just getting together to celebrate a new beginning makes for a great baby shower.
