Six years ago, when I had my second child, 2nd baby showers were pretty rare. It was still thought to be in poor taste to celebrate a second pregnancy since Mom and Dad should have all they need to begin with.
I didn’t always understand that — I mean, isn’t the celebration mostly for the baby? Either way, since then 2nd or 3+ baby showers have become more accepted. Some are still the traditional bring-gifts-for-baby before it’s born shower, but there’s been an increase in other types of celebration-showers for babies.
We now have gender-reveal parties, meet-and-greet parties, ultrasound parties, etc. I think that it’s near safe to say that having a traditional baby shower for your subsequent children is okay now.
While the parents may have the main gear they need for the baby, there are some gifts that would be great ideas for those second-plus baby showers if you think a little outside the traditional box of baby stuff.
Have fun clicking through these 7 gift ideas for a second or third baby shower and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
