Is it rude to have a baby shower for subsequent births?
I have always heard people say you can only have a baby shower for your first baby and that it is rude to have a baby shower for your second, third, etc babies. Some people think it is greedy and bad manners.
Personally I think it is up to you and your family. We all think that different things are acceptable. I had a baby shower for my first baby but not my others because it wasn't considered acceptable. I would have loved to still have a shower to celebrate the upcoming birth, but without gifts but I never got those. I have seen some pretty cute ideas for diaper showers or book showers for other births.
What is social acceptable in your circle of friends and family?
What did you do for your babies?
What is your opinion?
So, no.. I don't think it's rude.. at all.. any subsequent births can be given a party as a celebration and include the sibling, etc.. I personally would have no problem attending any second and third or fourth baby showers for any friends.. and giving a gift..
