I would assume they are not invited unless their names are on the invitation. DH's family and most of my family do adult only showers. One of my aunts has 4 daughters and their showers always include female children.
I don't have a problem with kids being at showers but I think it would be really boring for them.
Our family, probably. But, my girls were invited to a family wedding shower in the fall too.
I had a friend who would rather I not attend than bring DD1 when she was 5 months.
I've never been to a baby shower with kids. With the exception of a friend who adopted and her shower was after they brought the baby home because they didn't want one before hand just in case the birth mom backed out.
That being said, I never assume my child is invited anywhere unless its specifically stated.
This is all fascinating to me.
I went to one baby shower when there were kids. It was chaos. They ran around, screamed...it was annoying. To me, a baby shower is to "shower" the FTM with gifts, friends, food and good times. Toddlers running around trying to unwrap gifts is not cute to me.

I don't understand why you'd ever take someone to an event if they weren't invited. If they aren't on the invitation, they aren't invited. Whether they are 2 months, 2 years or 12.
It seems that people have no idea how to address or interpret an invitation.
nonasimonsen:No. Not welcomed.
And end, scene.
Love ya Nona.
This is me too. Of course, I would never assume a child was invited anywhere unless specified on the invite.
And this point always confuses me. I have quite literally never been to an adult only baby shower or bridal shower and I have been to a lot as we have a lot of people getting married and having babies in our church. Keep in mind I have never been to an invite only shower either. Back to the point, in the probably 50 or more showers I have been too (going back to when I was a child myself) I have never once seen a child try and open the presents. Nor were they running around bothering everybody else. Quite honestly you've never been able to tell that they are even there.
