I recently attended a baby shower (the first one I've ever been to. In the past I've just taken the Mum/baby a gift when I've been to visit after baby is born)
So at the shower, I gave my standard kind of gift, a woolen onesie, a good quality bib and some face wipes (I like to go practical because I figure you can never have too many of these things)
Towards the end a few women started getting all excited about, "and we'll bring you more gifts once baby is born."
Now part of me thinks well I'll feel odd going empty handed to visit the baby because I always take a gift, but the other side of me feels like I've spent what I would normally spend on a friend's baby and I'm done.
So ordinarily do you give a gift at the shower and when you meet baby? Is there any particular expectation, or is there no real rule?
