Baby showers are a time to celebrate both new life and the mother to be, there is no set rule on how many baby showers a mother should have, but some feel that one is enough, almost to say, “We gave gifts to your first, now you’re on your own.”
The original poster (OP) is pregnant with her second child, and her second baby shower is coming up in April, so she recently sent out invitations. OP goes on to say that she is very picky regarding design aesthetics. And she absolutely hates the modern trend of beige and muted colors and tacky text, especially on baby onesies.
At her last baby shower, she got a lot of onesies that she didn’t like and ended up donating them. OP feels like she doesn’t want her loved ones to waste money, and she certainly doesn’t want to pretend she likes a gift that she doesn’t.
A second Redditor agreed with OP and said, “Diapers are a budgetary burden for new families. This seems like a reasonable request.”
A third Redditor said, “Who cares? Baby showers aren’t just about gifts. It’s about spending time with family.”
