Baby Showers are fun events, filled with laughter, activities, gifts for the baby and advice for the parents-to-be. The origin of baby showers cannot be pinpointed exactly, but many people believed this practice dates back to the ancient times. During the Victorian Era, the Baby Shower was simply a Tea Party, held in the afternoon. The guests were the closest female friends of the mother-to-be, and they would gather together to talk, to wish the new mummy good luck and give small gifts for the child. It was a simple and quaint event.
Baby Showers were very popular in the US but are becoming more and more popular in Australia. Here are several popular Baby Shower traditions:
– Historically, Baby Showers were hosted by someone who was outside the Mummy-to-be’s family, such as a friend or a close co-worker, but today, almost anyone can host the Shower, including Sisters, Aunties or Best Friends of the Mummy-to-be.
– Baby Showers are held when the Mummy–to-be is at least seven or eight months pregnant, when her tummy is very obvious already.
– Traditionally, women were the only ones who went to the Party, especially during the early times. However, today, men, especially the Mummy-to-be’s Husband or Partner, are also invited to the Baby Shower.
