Being pregnant is something magical for anyone. It’s a time where there is so much joy, excitement, love, and, of course… gifts. But how do you go through the same process when another baby is on the way? Should you throw another baby shower for the mommy?
Let’s admit it, it’s not that easy to throw another party when you’re already taking care of your kids, but it shouldn’t be an excuse.
That’s how the term “sprinkle baby shower” (also known as a baby sprinkle or sprinkle shower) came to be, it gives equal importance to your next baby – because they deserve to be celebrated too.
So what is a sprinkle baby shower? It doesn’t necessarily mean a sprinkle-themed baby shower (but it’s the most popular theme anyway.) Instead, it’s meant to be a low-key gathering to welcome to your second (or third, or fourth, or fifth…) baby.
Since a sprinkle is a smaller variant of a “shower,” it means it’s not shouldn’t be as grand as a baby shower. Not because the next baby isn’t as important as the first, but because they won’t need those gifts anymore as the baby stuff from the firstborn can be re-used. Although some guests may still bring some baby supplies, a sprinkle baby shower is often more of a time to simply gather and celebrate the good news.
