Baby Showers

Baby greet?

Since this is my first, I am really unfamiliar with showers, and such.

I know that no one is hosting a shower for me...but I would like to do something. (I would really like to throw a "fluck you party" to my sucky family...just to let them know how crappy they are. My family has had a poor response to the gender of the baby...it's been really hurtful and heartbreaking. We aren't upset though! Over the moon happy!)

But, I have heard of the "baby greet" type parties, I think?

When do couples typically throw those? I would assume a month or two after the birth...I just am curious because I would like to plan something.

Help! Thanks!

 

EDIT:: This is not to cause MUD or drama...I am not "expecting" anyone to throw us a shower, or expecting gifts, or upset over anything like that, the "fluck you party" was a jab at my family for not being a part of the baby...I just want to celebrate the baby, and would like to do something since we aren't having a shower. If that makes sense.

  • It sucks that your family has gender disappointment.

    MTB are typically held at least 6-8 weeks after birth.  If you don't want to pass the baby around because of germs, I'd suggest wearing the baby during the party or tell everyone they have to wash their hands before they can hold him/her.

    Alright...I just wasn't sure about the timing of something like that. I didn't know if people typically do it pretty soon, or you can wait a few months. 

    It's a simple "meet the baby" deal...we are excited to celebrate baby!

  • Saw it a different way...I see your point.

    But to answer your previous question....why have unappreciative family there to meet the baby they were disappointed about. If they can't be happy for you then hmph....

    So that friends/ coworkers/ family that want to be a part of it...can celebrate. If they aren't appreciative, that's their problem...but if they want to show up and celebrate how awesome baby is, then come party on!

    You might have some backlash because you came across as a little bratty that no one is hosting a shower for you, not everyone gets a shower.  I chose to ignore that portion of your post and answer your question about timing of a MTB party.

    That's just an aboslute shame though. I'm sorry your family is being like that. All babies are a reason to be happy and wish well for the future parents.

    Understood. I edited to make it clear I'm not being bratty about it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Ignore the village idiot. Her reading comprehension skills are limited, at best.  I'm sorry your family is disappointed about the sex of your baby.  It's a shame they can't share in your joy.  I would say a "Meet the Baby" party is best thrown when you are ready, being that you will be the one to throw it.  I think 6-8 weeks is appropriate.  


    Well Bliss, if you didn't have a snarky comment to throw at me for the post being bad, then I know I came across clear. Hehehe.

    Perfect. 6 to 8 weeks...thank you!

    on the scale of 1 to "holy crapola, what a brat!!" I didn't rate you very high, which is why I didn't give you a whole bunch of snark in my first reply.  It's really unfortunate that your family isn't excited about your baby.  I had a cousin text me once a week until I announced I was having a girl.  She has the only boy in the family and I guess another baby girl (the 10th in our kids' generation) bummed her out.  What. Ev.

    Ditto ALL of this...including the "village idiot" part.

    OP, sorry your family sucks.  For my own morbid curiosity, is it a penis or a vagina that has upset your family so much?

    It's a penis...the best penis I have ever seen. Hahaha. 

     

    EDIT:: I say that in the least disgusting way...before I get ripped apart for that. I just mean excited about the boy!

  • Congratulations on the baby boy!!! 

    I never can figure out why anyone would be upset over the genitalia of a baby!  I mean, I might be bummed if I had like seven girls in a row...I wouldn't be mad at the seventh, but I'd be sad that I never got to experience a boy. (Though, I'm not concerned about this...I'd never keep having kids just to get the opposite sex--two and done here. LOL) Still I wouldn't be upset that she was a girl!  People are flucked up.

  • I would do it at 8 to 10 weeks. But I could not sit down right for 6 weeks and I had a lot of PPA so take my advice for what it is worth
