I’ve never heard of this, but I would be all about it!  Free diapers and free booze?! Yes, please.

they’re not overly common where I’m from.  At least as far as I know.  But, DH is having one.  It’s basically just a bunch of dudes sitting around grilling out and drinking.  The diapers are just the excuse.

Very common here. I can’t tell you how many DH has gone to. And yes, I have heard from the mothers that the diapers last a LONG time. Once we get PG, which isn’t for another 4 years, we probably won’t have one since i am all for cloth diapering. If his friends insist, which they probably will, we will probably donate the diapers to a non-profit or something

Never heard of it but if people wanted to come over and bring a ton of diapers, I’d be all for it 😛

@MrsB1015:  I’ve never ever heard of this, wow! A baby bachelor party where grown men bring diapers!?! Crazy idea! I’d LOVE free diapers, and seeing the men bringing them would be funny too. 🙂 Do you mind me asking what area you’re from?

If you have more than one shower, can you ask that one of them be a diaper shower? Diaper parties aren’t common here, but diaper showers are! Someone actually asked to throw me one, but we are cloth diapering. If he doesn’t like the idea and doesn’t feel comfortable, I wouldn’t push it on him… Plus renting a party bus sounds just as expensive as a year’s worth of diapers.

we do them here. In fact, I made DH throw one for a friend of ours who had a baby a few weeks ago. They’re not very ellaborate though. Not party busses, etc. It’s ususally an afternoon/evening thing where the guys all get togehter and play poker, or watch football, etc. They drink and eat, but they don’t go out or anything crazy. really, it’s just an excuse for the guys to hang out.

I made Dh throw one, so now that we’re expecting, I’m hoping somone will return the favor (even though we’re going to cloth diaper, I want disposables for nights/ trips, etc).

I’m in the south and went to a “Chuggies for Huggies” party.  We got beer and they got diapers.

Hu, I’m midwest too but never heard of it. I asked DH and he hadn’t either. Oh well, guess we’re living in a diaperless bubble!

My BIL wants to throw one for Hubs, but we are cloth diapering. But we are not using cloth wipes soooo he gets a wipes party, lol. It’s not insanely popular around here yet, but most people know what a diaper party is.
