My cousin has been offering to throw me a "sprinkle" since she found out I was pregnant. We are extremely close and I was thrilled that she wanted to throw a party for me, but it felt awkward. DS will not even be 2 yet when DD is born, so I think it would look really gift-grabby to have two showers so close together, especially since my baby shower for DS was almost exactly a year after my wedding shower (honeymoon baby)!
We have a fairly small family, and I don't have many local friends, so it would be a small affair. I also know that everyone will want to see the baby when she is born. I suggested that maybe a Meet and Greet/Sip and See would be the better option and she was totally for that. But I've never been to one so I have no idea what it should be like. I'm thinking I would like the invites to say no gifts. I know some people will bring little stuff (clothes or diapers) which is fine, but I don't really need anything since it hasn't been that long...
So... have you been to one? Did you have one? How did it work with such a little baby (some of my family is squeamish with breastfeeding too, so that makes me nervous)?
Any insight would be amazing!
