So I had my last baby 6 years ago. My lovely friend has offered to host a baby shower for me, I wasn’t going to but could be fun? do other people have baby showers for a second child?

Ask your question

  • I had my 2 little ones 4.5 years apart and I had a baby shower for both. It was so much fun



  • I’m not having one with our second but my daughter is only two. I think you should have one with your friend willing to host!Your family and friends would love to celebrate the upcoming birth of baby to be I’m sure!



  • If your friend wants to organise it and it doesn’t bother you then why not. I don’t see the harm in it baby showers are a lot of fun, and you can always say no gifts necessary so those that don’t wish to buy a gift don’t have to.



  • If you’re comfortable with having a baby shower, I’d absolutely do it. It could be a tonne of fun and a great way to celebrate your new bundle. I regret not having a proper shower for my first and would definitely do it next time.



  • Depends on if you have the same group of friends around you.
    Depending on how much of a do it is .
    As it was 6 years ago that’s not really close and by now.
    write a list of pros and cons maybe put for some a book is better than a card or gift something for later on



  • If your friend is willing to organise it for you and you are happy for her to do it and you want it then go for it. :)



  • Really it is up to you if you have one. I never had one for any of my six children and still did alright.



  • Did not have them – but personal choice.



  • I never had one, but got plenty of useful presents anyway :)



  • I didn’t even have it for the first one. But why not? :-)
