More specifically, during weeks 30-32 of pregnancy, which is the end of your 7th month. Invites should go out 8-10 weeks before the shower date. If you need guests to send something in such as a baby photo for a shower game, be sure to include this piece of directions with the RSVP directions.

Are baby sprinkles tacky?
“But that’s tacky, right?” For those not in the baby-shower trenches, a sprinkle is a baby shower lite, a Diet Coke of baby showers, designed to celebrate the impending birth of a second (or third or fourth. . .) baby, but with an intimate guest list and smaller-scale gifts—more Sophie la Girafe, less Uppababy Vista.
Do you have to open gifts at a baby shower?
Q: You buy someone a really great baby shower gift, but she doesn’t open the presents at the shower. Prior to the event, ask the host how the mom-to-be is handling gift opening. This helps you decide if you want to bring your gift, knowing you won’t see it opened, or give it when you’re alone with the parents.
