I had a baby shower for my son and I got a LOT of stuff!! I'm having another boy and another shower b/c my son is 2 and I wasn't expecting to already be havin #2, so while i still have a lot of stuff, we gave stuff away, stuff was broken or misplaced. So yeah, i'm having a shower with a full-fledged baby shower for this one too!! And I can't wait!!
I don't see why people can't have baby showers for all their kids, in my family we do it. If some people don't feel comfortable with it, they could do a diaper shower or something. Even if you have the same sex again, there are still going to be things you need like clothes(not all babies will wear the same sizes or be the right seasons), pacifiers and bottle nipples because those wear out easy, and other things that get wore out or gotten rid of.

With all of my five children, I have had baby showers.
My inlaws (because they are wealthy) have paid for all of the baby showers.
With my firstborn(a son) we had over 100 guests and approximately $5000 was spent on the occasion.
Then, when my daughter was born, we had 80 guests and that was held in a Restaurant that my inlaws had hired.
With my 2nd son, we had it at home, (only 50) guests.
With my 3rd son, we had the baby shower at my inlaws private garden - approx 80 guest,
and with my last baby approximately 65 guests and $3000 was spent.
I believe each child is precious and baby showers are important.
I'm very grateful to my inlaws that they can make it a special occasion for each of their grandchildren.

I dont see anything wrong with it, I agree that every child should be celebrated. I had a shower with DD and Im most likely having another girl, I really dont need much but I am going to have a diaper shower!
I am so happy to see people feel this way. I am wondering how people will feel because deep down I hope I get one but am not asking for one. I know some people have made comments i will get another one but concerned what others will think. Serena just turned 6 so by time we conceive number two she will be 7 or older by #2 gets here.
Most of my stuff is old, or I didn't ask for a lot first time around because we had a small apartment and I was 20, not married, etc. so we didn't get as much.
