3 Reasons to Host a Baby Shower Before the Baby Is Born

0   people commented

Baby showers can be held before or after the baby is born. How to decide? Start by considering these three very good reasons to hold a baby shower before the baby is born:

  1. Since one purpose of a baby shower is to help the expectant mom prepare for her newborn, holding a baby shower before gives her time to sort through her presents, set up the nursery, determine what items she’s missing, and obtain them before the baby arrives. She’ll also have a chance to send out thank-you notes while she still has some time to herself.
  2. The first few weeks with a new baby tend to be pretty crazy. If you have the baby shower before the baby arrives, the mother-of-honor is more likely to be able to relax and enjoy herself instead of thinking about feeding her newborn, changing diapers, and getting some sleep.
  3. The last couple months of pregnancy can be stressful. Hosting a baby shower can provide the mom-to-be with much needed emotional support, not to mention a dose of fun and companionship.

Since babies are often early, if you’re planning a baby shower before the birth, it’s best to pick a date at least six to eight weeks before the due date. And if the mom-to-be is expecting twins or triplets, make it even earlier.
