My fiance came up wit hthe idea that he is going to have a "diaper shower" when I have my babyshower. He is going to invite all of this friends out to our cabin at the sportsman club and have them all bring a case of diapers and a case of beer. I thought this was a pretty good idea considering you can NEVER use enough diapers, and it was a good way for him to bond with his friends before the baby is born & has less time to hang out with them. It's also a good way to get his friends involved, which has been relatively hard since we're so young (both of us being 21). Just thought I would share the idea! :]

Sounds like a great idea, you will need lots of diapers.
I am thinking of doing one for our next baby.

That's a good idea! It gives the guys something to do and you get diapers to!

If it works, that's great. But I can tell you that if someone invited my DH (especially if he were in his early 20s) someplace and told him he had to bring a case of diapers AND a case of beer, he'd either not go or go and only bring the beer.

LoL this is awesome and I am totally going to steal this idea from you guys! I know my boyfriend's friends would all bring diapers and beer which totally cracks me up. Especially if there is poker involved!

I plan on doing what my friend did with her diaper shower. She had a drawing for a prize and 1 pack of diapers = 1 entry. So you could bring as many as you wanted so you could have a better chance at winning the prize. Thought this might be helpful to encourage them to bring more than 1 pack.

That's such a cool idea. I wish I would have had a baby shower but nope everyone just started getting me things so I decided not to do one.

Our church threw us a baby shower and our baby is now 7.5 months old and we have only had to buy 2 packs of diapers (we didn't get very many newborn and 1 sizes and she was in those for a long time). We still have several pack of 3's and 4's that haven't been used yet so it will probably be several more months before we have to start buying diapers.

I am doing this at my shower in October. I put wipes on some invites and diapers on others. That way I will get both. If guests bring a pack of diapers or a pack of wipes their name will go into the door prize drawing.

Well, you can always tell your DB or DH that he needs to let each of his friends know what size diapers to bring so you DONT get all the same size, and if not, make them bring a receipt, or gift receipt. =P

ANother great idea is for your shower, in the invitations tell everyone they all need to bring one thing of diapers if they want to enter into a raffle to win a gift basket or prize. A few of my friends have done this and they didn't have to buy diapers for 6 months to a year! That is AWESOME! Again, let them know what size they should bring to enter the raffle! We don't want all the same size!

Hope this helps others. I'm definitely going to do it with my shower in NOvember.

OK, I'm noticing I'm so late on the shower Idea! DIdn't mean to repost the same ideas. Sorry ladies!
