Types of Baby Showers
Way back when, there used to be one type of baby shower: ladies gathered in someone’s living room to celebrate a pregnant mama. These days, however, there is no one standard for a baby shower. There are so numerous diverse routes you can go; here are a few that we’re particularly fond of:
Baby showers for boys or girls. Oftentimes, couples select to discover out the gender of their baby-to-be. That can make planning a shower easier, as it narrows below the list of possible themes.
Blue bowties might be a grand shower theme for a baby boy, while pink ballerinas are perfect for baby girls.
Gender-neutralbaby showers. Back in the day, parents used to own to wait until the baby was born to discover out its gender. If the mom- and dad-to-be are waiting to be surprised on the large day, a gender-neutral baby shower is the way to go. There are so numerous amazing themes for these types of showers, includingjungle animalsandbubble baths.
Baby sprinkles. This is a relatively new type of baby shower during which guests celebrate a mother’s second or third kid.
Most times, the parents don’t need every of the traditional baby shower gifts, love a stroller, crib or nursing pillow — they already own those from their first baby. Instead, it’s a way to treat the expectant mom with a little something special for her, love a prenatal massage, and a present for the large brother or sister. Gifts of diapers and formula are perfect for baby sprinkles — every parent needs more of the basics, no matter how numerous children they have.
Couples baby showers. We mentioned before that baby showers used to just be for women, but that is changing. Nowadays, it’s common to visit a backyard barbecue baby shower that everyone can enjoy.
Couples baby showers should own options for diverse activities, so that if certain guests would rather catch up and frolic cornhole instead of watching the mom-to-be open her gifts, they are free to do so.
Being pregnant is no simple task — but it isn’t always hard work!
