Re: Would you permit the throwing of a second baby shower?

I've been to showers thrown for second babies, and a few for thirds, even!

DH and I feel like we don't really need anything new (we'll co sleep -no nursery, we'll CD - no need for tons of sposies and wipes, I already have a Medela pump, and we can afford our own carseats, clothes, etc.) so we think it isn't exactly necessary.

Would you consent or do you consider a second shower tacky/taboo?
Ddc... If you don't need another shower... What about just a party to celebrate? Sounds more fun to me anyways. I wouldn't think bad of you having another shower if I were a guest, but seems silly if you don't need it. My boys are close together and people were super generous with my first, so I refused a second.
