So I am 15wks 1day and this is my second baby. I am thrilled let me just say but I have a question for you moms with multiple children. is it ok to have a baby shower? I know traditionally no but my situation is this; I divorced my sons dad and he got rid of all my sons things from when he was a baby (he's three BTW). this baby is also number one for daddy. So I think I should be able to have another shower but I feel guilty about it. Any thoughts?
As far as shopping I'm just wondering if anyone started yet? I'm waiting another couple weeks when I find out if its a boy or girl. I like shopping for clothes the toys I leave up to family lol. So if you have started shopping what is the first item you bought your baby??
i have not started shopping yet except looking around for crib because thats something we want to pick out together. as for the baby shower i think its ok to have another baby shower, i also have a 3 year old and im no longer with her father and married to an amazing man and this is his first child also because of that we are having a baby shower for this one, especially if its a boy since we have a girl now i still have some of her stuff but gave most of it to my 2 step sisters for there lil girls.
Tarrah we have so much in common with our stories I'm gonna laugh if I find out I'm having a girl lol. And yes I to am with an amazing man this time. Don't ya wish sometimes that would cancel out your ex and they went away. Mine isn't a very nice person at all.
I think its fine to have another shower. Its a celebration for a new baby. You're going to need more things even if the gender is the same as the first. I went to a shower for a friend's second baby last year and they made it into a backyard cookout. Very different than the traditional baby shower they had for the first kid. Most people gave gifts - mostly new clothes and diapers. I say, go for it! Who doesn't want to celebrate a new life!
