I was told when I was pregnant with my second child that a baby shower wasn't appropriate, but if you look at baby books there aren't any that say "1st born" 2nd born" or 3rd born" ect... so I did have a baby shower for my 1st born and my 2nd born the 2nd baby shower wasn't near as big as the 1st born, but I had different needs and like you my children are of different genders and I don't know if this will help you, but what I did for both of my children was "any" money that I received I put it toward their college funds. I hope this will help.

I think that it is important to have a shower or sprinkle for each child. Almost every baby book has place for pictures and cards from the showers. When kids grow up they see their baby books and wonder why they didn't have one. Plus it's important for moms in each pregnancy to get support and have all of their friend with them. They are really just great all of the way around. Plus every one loves a baby shower! They are so much fun. Any reason to have a party and get together is great!

I don't see why you shouldn't have another baby shower.. Boys need separate and different items than girls do.. Plus new baby items come along all the time.. If you have all the big items its not like you will be putting them on your registry list. Good Luck and Congrats!

Absolutely! My friends gave me a shower for my 2nd baby. They waited until after the baby came. (That was before sonograms,to determine the sex of the baby, were so popular.) I had another boy, so there was alot of things I didn't need again. So, they got me things that were not available when my first son was born. They also gave me a lot of diapers. It was great!

Is someone wanting to throw you a shower? You might consider telling them about baby "sprinkles". Essentially it's a small shower, since you've already had a shower and received the "big" things. These types of showers are great for second children, especially in your case since you mostly need boy themed items and not the big stuff.
