Baby shower 6 weeks before due??? I♡C&R. 2 kids; Thornton, CO, United States 24858 posts

Would having my baby shower 6 weeks before due date be too soon? I am due Dec 13th (known to have babies early) and would like to have the baby shower Oct 27th as to get it out of the way before Holidays hit AND to give me enough time to buy any last minute items I might not get at baby shower. What do you ladies think?

That sounds like a good time. I think mine was 4 weeks before with my son, but with the holidays having it a little earlier is safer.

6 weeks sounds good. I had my baby shower 5 weeks before little man was due and it ended up being 3 weeks before he was born. I had plenty of time to get everything situated.

I'm having mine a week and five days before my due date. I don't actually need anything for this baby besides diapers tho.



Six weeks sounds fine to me.

Yes, I've got all of the main items needed like swing, bouncer, crib, bassinet, dresser, rocking chair, pump, bottles, pacifiers, etc. I just NEED things like clothes, diapers, burp rags, bibs, blankets, etc. Stuff I know I'll get from having a baby shower. I'll make out a registry with those specifics closer to time or will list "needed items" at bottom of invite (to give people an idea). It'll be mostly family and church people who want to give me a shower since I'm having a girl this time so most of my boy items are pointless..

I don't think it's too soon at all. I'll be having mine this Sunday, 7 weeks before my due date. I had preeclampsia with my first, so I wanted to make sure I had it early enough in case I get it again this time.
