Frequently Asked Questions

While everyone’s situation is unique, baby showers are typically hosted by a close friend or family member. In traditional baby shower etiquette, it is considered inappropriate for the mom-to-be or her spouse to host the baby shower, as this can give the impression that their goal is to collect as many gifts as possible.

The host usually takes care of the baby shower planning and organizing – so the soon-to-be mom can relax and enjoy being celebrated with her nearest and dearest.

Baby showers for singletons are typically held four to six weeks before the baby’s due date. This is so the pregnancy is far enough along (in some traditions, it’s considered bad luck to acquire baby items early on in pregnancy), but early enough to avoid mom going into labor prior to (or even during!) the party. However, with a twin pregnancy, you can throw tradition out of the window. Aside from the fact that most twin pregnancies are delivered earlier at 32-38 weeks, the mom-to-be is likely going to feel uncomfortable much earlier in the pregnancy. We would recommend throwing a baby shower for twins at 26-28 weeks to ensure the shower is as comfortable and relaxing as possible for the soon-to-be mom.
The baby shower guest list is completely up to the host and the mom-to-be. You might limit invites to tight-knit friends and immediate family members, or branch out and invite co-workers, husbands and boyfriends – every situation is different and there are no right or wrong ways to throw a twin baby shower! It’s acceptable to provide the mom-to-be with a list of names to ensure that no one is forgotten about.
