    No, where I live it's seen as extremely greedy and distasteful to have a second baby shower. It is however common to have a party for any future kids, not a shower, gifts aren't expected and it's usually after the baby is born. People usually end up bringing gifts anyway, but it's not expected and no one gets pissy if you don't. I have two boys and am pregnant, if it's a girl, I won't be having another shower, we probably won't have a baby party until their baptism and we will combine the baptism party with the meet the baby party.

    If someone is willing to throw one, why not. People have the option to say they don't want to come and everyone LOVES shopping for a baby. (: At least I do anyways! I don't want one and I don't expect any gifts for our second child. I know all my friends who have had multiple kids don't have another shower, they throw a SPRINKLE for the Mom which is just a small intimate version of a baby shower and a Diaper Party for the Dad. Dad gets to hang out with his buddies, they bring over a package of diapers and depending on the the season, watch a game, eat some wings and drink beer. LOL Everybody wins!

    I didn't have one.I had one for my son, but with my daughter 18 months later nope. I find it in bad taste to have more than one unless like 5 years later.

    We have baby showers for every baby.

    I only think it is tacky if someone throws it for themselves.

    Around here the mom to be doesn't give her own shower, but if someone else wants to give her one, then go for it.  It should be primarily for the sake of the party and the fun of talking and laughing together and having something to eat.  If she already has most of what she needs, then a diaper shower, or even no gifts, would be fun.

    I think it's a little tacky to have more than 1 shower. But it is pretty common nowadays.

    That is beyond tacky!
