I think that sounds great! I’m planning on having a Sip & See (thrown by my sister and a friend perhaps) for my first born too. I already have so much baby stuff given to me by family that having a baby shower would just overwhelm our small apartment with more stuff….plus Hubby’s parents are flying in after the birth so it’s a great way for them to see and celebrate the baby with my family and friends here.

We will probably do this as well for my MIL and husband’s side of the family (we do not have the time before the baby comes to fly out to visit them for a shower), although we’ll most likely be going to them. For us that means we’ll have a Meet the Baby party when he’s much older (probably 6 months or so).

Personally I’m a little wary of throwing a party soon after giving birth. Do you think you’ll be up for it? You have to organize, invite, clean, prepare, and host all in your home with a newborn. That sounds exhausting! Would your MIL or other family member host the Sip & See for you? That would take the stress off of you and your husband.

(Also, I’m not super comfortable with having a party thrown in my honor/with me in the spotlight either, so I asked my family to frame it as a pre-birthday party for the baby. It makes me feel better that the focus is on the baby and not on me.)
