Now that I'm pregnant, I'm wondering if it's tacky to have another baby shower. I had one when I was pregnant with dd, but not with ds. They are 14 months apart so we had everything we needed except clothes and diapers.
Some people have said its tacky to have a baby shower after your first because it's a little greedy. Do you agree?? And no, I wouldn't be throwing a baby shower for myself. My mom will be doing it. I'm just curious to see what other moms think.

I don't think it's tacky if your kids are at least a few years apart, or different genders. But, personally, for a second shower, I wouldn't ask for the big stuff. I would buy the big stuff myself, and ask more for clothes and diapers.
Oops I should add my son is my ex husbands and is 3.5.
I had one with my son. It sucked because my mil didn't come because she didn't support the idea of a baby. My sisters never came because one worked and the other was not invited, because of a family fued.
However my bf/df and I are both planning to TTC in the next couple months and his family want to throw my shower.
I don't think it's tacky. Your celebrating your baby's life.

by Aurora-DoveOctober 10, 2012 at 10:52 AMMost people where I'm from have one for each child. It isn't just about getting stuff it's about joining in celebrating new life!

All babies should be celebrated. First babies aren't the most special, every child is equally special.

I had a baby shower for both pregnancies. Granted the sexes were different but I don't see why it would matter. I through a baby shower for all 3 of my cousin's boy. And no body made any complaints. I think each baby and each pregnancy should be celebrated!
