Question: Can You Have A Baby Shower After The Birth?

Can you have a baby shower after the baby is born?

Traditionally the baby shower is held 4-6 weeks prior to baby’s arrival.

It is becoming more common for parents to wait until after the baby is born.

Do you have a baby shower after your first child?

Baby showers traditionally were thrown for the expectant mother by a close friend or co-worker (usually not a relative) and only for her first baby. In modern times, baby showers are given not just for the first child, but the rest as well.

Where did baby showers originate from?

Etymology. The term shower is often assumed to mean that the expectant mother is “showered” with gifts. A related custom, called a bridal shower, may have derived its name from the custom in the 19th century for the presents to be put inside a parasol, which when opened would “shower” the bride-to-be with gifts.
