i dont know what to do my good friend wants to through me a baby shower which is wonderful and i’m mega happy about and shes asked me for a guest list who do i invite?
[this is my second child (i know scond baby showerscan be touchy to some ppl.) and second baby shower (i’m having a boy and my first was a girl they’ll be 3 years apart) my first shower my mom had tho she didnt want to and i had no say in who to invite and it was 95% her friends.]
1st question….i’ve made a few new friends in the past 3 or so month do i invite them to the shower?
2nd…..do i invite my 2 anuts tho we only see each other at christmas?
3rd …..should i invite my mom even tho shes a grump about second baby showers?

I’ve been to several 2nd baby showers but theyve all been family only with maybe the brides best friend.
I would say you should invite who you’d like there! But your aunts and mom should be included.

I didn’t vote, because I think for a 2nd shower it should be just family and maybe a few very close friends. Definitely include aunties and such, but this should be more of a “sprinkle” instead of a full blown shower. For example, I just went to a sprinkle for a 2nd baby- her 1st was a boy, her 2nd is a girl. It was a low key, coed brunch. It was all family except for maybe three couples who are close friends of the guest of honor and her husband. No games, and the only presents were just clothes, since she obviously didn’t need any other baby gear and just needed opposite sex clothes.It was fun, and perfect for a second baby.

I’ve been to second baby showers and they don’t offend me one bit. I say invite everyone you want to be there. New friends, old friends and family will be delighted to celebrate with you!

Don’t even sweat the 2nd shower thing! Enjoy your day & invite whoever YOU WANT there! (& yes I think that includes your mom even if she’s being grumpy)
