Ok, I know I'm probably opening Pandora's Box here, but my husband and I were laying in bed talking about our 2nd child due in February. We have a 19 month old Nataleigh and were discussing if you register for a 2nd child or even if there was a baby shower. Now, we don't know the sex of this child yet, but were smart with the first and our large items, car seats, stroller, playpen, swing etc., were all gender neutral. We don't want to offend anyone if we register and all my best friends, & sisters don't have kids and don't know these rules either....Any suggestions and opinons will be appreciated. My sister was curious because she wanted to plan me a shower already because she had so much fun with the first. Thanks,
I think that it is ok to have another one since it would be around two years ago that you had your last one and you could just let family and friends know that it is just to celebrate a new child but you would be grateful for any gifts given.
i'll tell you what im doing, im pregnant with baby #2 due Sept 16th. and we are having a girl. we did what you did with my son and bought everything winnie the pooh so it can go either way. but my mom really wanted to throw me a shower. so instead of registering i ask her to just put in the invites that i am not registered any where and if you want to buy something to just get the baby necessities, like diapers, wipes, soap, ect.. and that we are having a girl so if people wanted to buy clothes or blankets to buy girl colors.
I think they actually call it a baby sprinkle or something like that.
hope this helps
Wow- with a seven year age difference, I think you would need to get new gear anyway! The carseat alone would be so outdated.
As for a second. If someone wants to throw you a shower or a sprinkle. Why not. I agree with the whole welcome baby sentiment. Why can't we just have a party because a new little baby is coming into this world! If people want to bring gifts, great. But a party is so much fun even if there aren't gifts- hey- there's cake!

I am with others. I have a 4 & 7 year old. I NEED a baby shower since my first two, boy & girl, shared alot but its outdated, given away, or destroyed by now. But no one seemed to realize that. So instead we are having a welcome baby party 4 weeks after! This helps us on some essentials..plus since we dont know what we are having it helps others shop. One extra plus is since I have gest diabetes I will enjoy the food at the party this way.

I'm having my second in December and my daughter will turn 3 a month before. My coworkers want to throw me a baby shower and I have alot of family that is out of state. I am making a registry just incase anyone asks, that way my family can just go online an order something off my registry and the store will ship it.
My mother in law thinks its crazy for anyone that already has a child to have another baby shower, but if someone wants to throw one for you, you should be able to enjoy it and not feel guilty.
