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 Mother-In-Law 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 Mother-In-Law 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.)
