Moreover, is it rude to have a second baby shower?

Furthermore, what do you call a second baby shower? While a baby shower is often held for a first-time mommy-to-be, a baby sprinkle is held to celebrate a second or later child.

Beside this, are baby showers only for the first child?

Baby showers traditionally were thrown for the expectant mother by a close friend or co-worker (usually not a relative) and only for her first baby. In modern times, baby showers are given not just for the first child, but the rest as well.

How many baby showers can you have?

When all was said and done, our consensus was that every mother is allotted one baby shower — two at the most if you have a child of a different sex somewhere down the line.
