    Are baby showers normally arranged by the mums or the friends/family.?

    There is no way I would arrange one as it looks like I am being greedy, and I haven't heard of any being arranged for me so I am presuming that I definitely won't be having one.

    Mine was arranged by a friend of mine and her mum. It was tomorrow but had to be cancelled unfortuantely.

    I thought baby showers were an American tradition. I've never heard of anyone in the UK having one before.

    It's a great tradition, but I didn't think that English people did them. The tradition here seems to be that some people will bring gifts for mum and baby after the birth!

    As has been mentioned elsewhere, this means that you don't want to buy too many cute little outfits etc for baby, because you may be swamped with them by caring friends and relatives! But then, maybe you won't. hmmm?

    That's a lot of money worth of presents you will be getting, here we do it the other way round, buy all the big stuff ourself and people buy us clothes as gifts. You're really lucky.
