A baby shower is simply a party where the focus is on a pregnant mom and her baby.
Sometimes the dad is also the focus if it is a co-ed baby shower.
Guests often bring gifts for the baby and sometimes gifts for the mom and dad.
The purpose is to celebrate the upcoming birth of a baby.
What is the purpose of having a baby shower?
Family bonding. The baby shower is a family’s first opportunity to gather people together to help play a part in their child’s life. The new parents may wish to call on people to assist in the upbringing of their child and help educate the child over time.
When should you have a baby shower?
When should the shower be held? Showers are typically given four to six weeks before the baby’s due date—late enough so that the pregnancy is well along, but early enough so that the baby is unlikely to arrive before the party day does.
Do you only have baby shower first baby?
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.
Do you have baby shower?
It is now acceptable to have a baby shower for a second or even third child, even if they are the same gender. Every baby can be celebrated, and it’s a great opportunity to get together with family and friends. However, the family having the baby should not be the initiator.
