Why are you against multiple showers? We have had memebers at our church who were against having a 2nd shower for their own pregnancies and our members still wanted to do things for them and bought them gifts anyway. I wonder if it depends on where you live because not having a shower with every baby was unheard of until I moved.

For me the reason for a baby shower is to celebrate the women becoming a mother and the baby. Gifts are giving for the baby and it's a very special time. After a first child is born you are already are a mother and you most likely already have most of the baby stuff you need for a second baby. When a second or third child is born friends and family can then feel free to bring a gift when they come to meet the baby if they feel the need- but it's not mandatory like it would be if they were invited to a baby shower. For me it's just too much and I don't need all that stuff.
