Okay, here's the dilemma:<br><br>
My mom and her friend want to throw me a baby shower (my 2nd baby is due July 12). It works best to have it at her friend's house, but she is going to Europe for a month, and can only do it May 22 or the last weekend in June.<br><br>
May 22 would be fine, but ds's 3rd birthday is May 15, and I was planning a little party for him. Many of the same people would be invited to both, and I feel a little weird obligating them to two Saturday events in a row for me and my children.<br><br>
We could do the baby shower the last weekend in June, but that is cutting it kind of close to my due date.<br><br>
So we thought about doing a Welcome Baby party after the baby is born. My concern with this though is bringing a newborn to a party full of people who will want to hold and touch and otherwise interact with them. Also, I have no problem with people bringing their kids to my babyshower if they want to (hey, I don't have to watch them!), but I wouldn't want kids at the Welcome Baby party because of possible colds and runny noses. But I of all people feel weird throwing a 'no kids' party.<br><br>
So what would you do? Two Saturday events in a row? A baby shower right up close to your due date? A welcome baby party a month after the baby is born?<br><br>
Any other ideas?

Be careful with a welcome party...you may be exhausted after the sweet little one is born. And having a bunch of people around you may be to much. (that's me any ways...)<br><br>
Maybe, have a SUPER early baby shower!:LOL Then any of the stuff you don't like you will have plenty of time to return.:LOL :LOL

We're doing a welcome baby party 3 mos. after he is born...that way I figure he's built up a lot of immunity and I won't worry so much about kids being sick around him. This timeframe also coincides nicely with his church dedication, though, so that's why no one is grumbling about it being done so far after his birth.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Maybe you could think about having it much, much later than you are planning right now?<br><br>

We did a baby shower at about 2 months. I'm not a worrier about colds, etc. The other advantage is I knew more of what I needed. (actually, people got together and gave me a gift certificate at a baby consignment store.)
