Re: Would you permit the throwing of a second baby shower?
This is our first boy and last baby. DH has an older DD from a previous marriage and we have a DD that is almost 4. So we have A LOT of girl items and not the first little boy thing. The last boy to be born in the family on his side was 26 years ago and on my side it was 22 years ago. So its been a very very long time.
I say if you are having a baby that is an opposite gender from your first then yes that would be good for odds and ends. I wouldn't make a list of things you need just make it to celebrate a new one and whatever people would like to give to the baby as a gift is fine. Nothing extravagant.
