For those of you who've already been 2nd time (or 3rd or 4th).. did you have a baby shower for each baby? I'm confused as to whether or not to tell a friend who has asked that I want one or no?

I did not have one with #2 or #3... with #4 my best friend offered to do a shower for me before we knew the gender, and when we found out it was a boy, everyone seemed really excited to do a shower as well. I didn't have anything big, it was honestly like having lunch with my girlfriends (minus all of our kids). It was nice and relaxed and small.

I've been to showers for subsequent children and have always had a good time, sometimes it just a diaper shower, or taking the mommy to be out to lunch, or sometimes its even just a party after the baby is born. I personally think every baby should be celebrated, but I also don't expect showers for subsequent children either...

Work held a mini-shower for me for my second, which was basically a pooled gift card to Target and lunch. I'm with Christine; every baby should be celebrated, but it's usually more of a baby celebration than shower after the first, unless it's been quite a while between babies.

i agree with christine, I think every baby should be celebrated. We had one only because we knew it was the opposite gender. I know one of my friends is having a girl that already has a girl and someone offered to do a diaper shower for her since she has alot of things from her first.

i only had one shower, and i had both genders.
Honestly i didnt need much--clothes and diapers. I had gender neutral stuff from Mac, since i knew we wanted them close together, i planned accordingly.

the clothes and diapers, i just slowly built up a supply over my pregnancy. I had enough diapers and wipes saved up for both kids for my entire maternity leave. And i bought a bunch of clothes for charlie at garage sales over the summer. Or i shopped the clearance racks.

I didn't have ANY showers.... not my thing BUT, I think it's completely up to you. If you want a shower and people are offering - why not? It's fun, you get gifts, you spend time with friends & family and celebrate your baby! It's all good. My work at the time did do a large gift basket for me & a gift card to TRU which was super sweet - it was a surprise.

I didn't have a shower for my second, but everyone else I know has had a shower for their second. I've heard you can have a shower for your first and a "sprinkle" for your second. I think every baby should be celebrated also but wouldn't expect everyone to agree. Mine were so close and both girls; so I would have felt bad inviting people to a shower...people did give me gifts for Addy though.
