Planning a Baby Shower: Proper Baby Shower Etiquette

A baby shower was a tradition that was started to celebrate the arrival of a new baby for expectant mothers.  However, the tradition begin in the very early days and was very different compared to today’s baby showers.  In fact, there is a lot of controversy surrounding today’s baby showers and the etiquette.     The purpose of a baby shower is to celebrate the arrival of the new baby and to shower the mother with attention and gifts.  In fact, if you have a baby shower beyond your first born child you may or may not experience some negativity surrounding the baby shower.  Early traditions intended a baby shower to be for the first born child only; however, traditions are slowly changing and more people feel that each baby should be a reason enough to celebrate the baby’s arrival.
