Having a shower for second baby used to be considered greedy and unacceptable. But now it is not only acceptable, but it is actually necessary for some families to have a baby shower for second baby. Though mom-to-be may already have a lot ofrepparttar major items from her first baby. Crib, stroller, high chair - she will need many other items.

Moms-to-be always need things like diapers and wipes, undershirts, bath accessories, and feeding supplies. Second baby showers could actually be a “sprinkle” shower. A "sprinkle" shower is where guests buy onlyrepparttar 149134 necessities rather than having a full-blown shower.

You could also consider finding out from mom-to-be what she wished she had but didn’t getrepparttar 149135 first time around. Then add those items torepparttar 149136 suggested gifts. It could also be a “Bear Necessities” theme decorated with all sorts of bears forrepparttar 149137 shower for second baby.

You could have baby showers for second baby for a caboose baby, or a baby born much later than other babies. Might be very similar to a first time baby shower. Most likely, if there are many years between babies, these parents no longer have any baby items and will be in need of all types of gifts forrepparttar 149138 second baby showers.

For moms-to-be who already have enough forrepparttar 149139 baby, you might consider having a “mom” baby shower where everyone brings a baby shower gift for mom-to-be instead of forrepparttar 149140 baby. These can be items with which she can pamper herself, or items that she may need while she is in labor.

Sometimesrepparttar 149141 mom-to-be doesn’t need anything forrepparttar 149142 baby or for herself, but she wants to have a get together with friends. For this type of party, you may want to ask guests to bring unwrapped baby gifts.
