Baby Shower Questions Answered

Baby Shower Questions Answered

Hosting a baby shower for the very first time? Here are some answers to the questions you may have. 😊

- Who should pay for the baby shower? – usually the hostess does. If you have a very limited budget but want to host a baby shower for your close friend or family member, consider asking a couple more people to co-host the baby shower with you! There are also ways to reduce the costs such as baking cakes and cookies yourself.

- When should the shower be held? – typically a shower is held 4-6 weeks before the due date, but some people prefer to do it earlier just in case the baby decides to come early.

- Who should you invite? – close friends and family. You can help create a guest list but make sure you let the Mom-to-be review the list before you send out the invitation.

- What else? – just like any other parties you may have, it’s easier when you have a check list of what to prepare (food, drinks, entertainment – there are a lot of shower games to entertain your guests).

Bottomline: don’t forget that while hosting a baby shower is a lot of fun, it’s important to check with the expecting Mom to see what she likes and prefers. This way both of you will have a great time and your effort will be well-appreciated!

Add Some Personal Touches To Your Baby Shower

Add Some Personal Touches To Your Baby Shower

A baby shower doesn’t have to just be a party. It’s a special time to celebrate a life you are creating. Consider putting some thought into making it meaningful to you.

Because every pregnancy is different, there are different ways to celebrate it, too! Here are some examples as food for thought:

  • If trying to conceive was not easy for you, or even considered a “miracle”, think about a unique theme for your shower (something magical, a unicorn for a girl shower, for example).
  • If your pregnancy was a surprise, think about making it a “happy surprise” theme for your shower.
  • If you have been journaling your pregnancy with photos and videos, consider playing them at your shower. It’s an amazing journey and your guests will feel included in this great life experience you are going through.
  • If you already have a name picked out that means something to you and your partner, consider displaying a personalized baby item at the shower and explain to your guests why this name is special to you.

While people put a lot more effort into announcing their pregnancy nowadays, you can make your shower unique and meaningful, too! Once the baby is here, you will be happy that you’ve celebrated him/her with a party that’s meaningful to you.

Do Something Thoughtful For Your Expecting Friend

Do Something Thoughtful For Your Expecting Friend

While expecting a baby is very exciting, it can also cause anxiety, especially for first-time moms. Once the baby is here, things can get even harder with frequent feeding throughout the day and night as well as lack of sleep. Here are some things you can do to help.

  1.  Have friends, coworkers, and family write encouraging notes. Collect them in a jar and ask the expecting Mom to read it while she’s at the hospital waiting for delivery. It will help to distract her away from the pain and remind her that she’s got all the support she needs.
  1.  Have people sign up meals for post-delivery.  It’s hard to prepare meals when you have a newborn who constantly needs you and all you want is sleep. Having fresh-made food delivered makes things easier for the parents.
  1.  Have people write humorous notes on newborn diapers at the baby shower. Midnight changing is exhausting. Help to bring a smile to the parent’s face when they are doing midnight changing.
  1.  Prepare little cards, treats, and give hugs when the Mom returns to work. Going back to work after having a baby can be nerve-racking! Show your support and make the transition easier for the Mom.

Unconventional Baby Shower Ideas

Unconventional Baby Shower Ideas

Not feeling crazy about the conventional baby shower ideas? Here are some thoughts to get your ideas going.

  • Co-Ed baby showers - a baby shower doesn’t have to be all girls! Let your other half and male friends join the party. Make it a celebration for both genders.
  • Create something together - prepare some crafting kits for guests to make at the shower that can be used to decorate your nursery. It’s not just fun but also meaningful. Imagine telling your kid “Aunt Amy made this for you at your baby shower!”. How cool is that? :-)
  • Fill the pantry and freezer - instead of having a baby shower, invite some friends over and spend the day cooking/baking! Make meals that freeze well and divide them into meal-size portions before you freeze them. Once your baby is here, you will have meals in the freezer - and you will recall all the fun you had while enjoying your meal!
  • Do a sleepover with your bffs - invite your bffs to have a sleepover. Whether it’s at your house or a nice hotel. Have some pregnancy “mocktails” (alcohol-free), eat, and gossip all night!
  • Not feeling social? - block out a day on the calendar and make it all about you and your significant other (or even just yourself!). Get pampered with a spa, a movie, and a nice meal.

Bottomline: it’s YOUR baby shower. Do things that make you happy. Don’t get stressed because you are doing it differently.
