I am not having a baby shower with this baby,i had one with all my girls and i'm just over it lol. I do however really like the idea of a diaper shower,i assume it is just getting diapers as gift and to me that would be perfect lol. so should i just write on the invite to just bring diapers if they want to,do i specify what size? and at what point in my prenancy should i do the shower? i was just going to have a get together and decorate the house with pink or blue decorations depending the sex of the baby.i don't know how to plan this,my mom was going to do all this but she will probably be in prison when the time comes :( and with my my other showers they each were done by someone else so i never had to worry about this stuff lol. i feel dumb,this is my 4th baby i should have this down by now haha.

throwing your own shower is extremely tacky.

Sometimes you don't have anyone to do it for you. OP I don't think it's tacky. It sucks but it's fine IMO

Don't host your own shower.

You could always throw a "welcoming baby" BBQ. Idk how you would go about asking for just diapers though

nope, still tacky. Baby showers are not requirements.

Its just a diaper party and if you want to send out your own invites and stuff go ahead, but I would have a hostess to help me on that day. I had one at work and I told them to put on the invitation no nb diapers. I also put where I was registered too because people insisited on buying other things

It's really not. It's generally accepted as tacky. It's barely acceptable to have multiple showers, you definitely don't throw your own. It's asking for gifts. She's having the baby.... She provides for it. If someone throws her a shower, great. But it's not expected, and you don't do it yourself

I wouldn't personally host my own shower lol. What you could do is maybe have a friend throw it for you but you pay for it, maybe?
I would just make some kind of game out of it.."Presents are not needed but we are having a diaper raffle, bring a pack of diapers and get entered into a draw to win xxxxx" and make it a good prize :)

You don't... Because you never ask people to buy you things

You could always just turn it into a game like a diaper raffle. Thats what we did at my last shower.
