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.
What is the difference between a baby sprinkle and a baby shower?
A baby sprinkle is just like a baby shower but scaled down. If mom is on her second, third (or fourth) child, consider throwing her a baby sprinkle instead of a full blown baby shower. Although traditional baby shower etiquette calls for showering the first child only, the mom-to-be may want to celebrate each birth.
