I am only 10 wks now but I am an early planner always have been its just me, lol. Anyway this is my 3rd LO and DH 1st my youngest is 12, I do not think his family will host a shower for me and I really dont want my mom to host I think that might look rude since this is my 3rd any way DH and I are more then able to purchase all of the items we need a lot of folks have been offering their babies items that are no longer being used anymore which is great. I was thinking of hosting a Meet the BAB lunch after LO is born.....I am not a germaphobe (CP?) but I hate the thought of everyone touching and handling LO so young. I would have DH call people I think and remind them that is they are kids have been sick within the last week we can get to gether another time as LO has not had all their shots yet. (we have family members who OFTEN bring their sick kids to parties and I HATE THAT). I saw on another post about a mom wearing the baby during the party to avoid holding issues and spread anti bacterial bottles all over the house for people to use......sorry I see this is getting long my question is at what age is safe and a good time to host this kind of party???
