Baby Shower for Dads…It’s a Thing Now!

In case you haven’t heard, I’m here to tell you a new trend is being born…baby showers for guys. Complete with invitations, themes, games, and gifts, men are getting together to celebrate their little bundles to be.

Apparently themes like “barbecues, babies, and beer” are a favorite among these testosterone based bashes. Just like baby showers we have all been to, the guys play some games, eat food, talk and just hang out. But, from what I’ve read, their showers seem to be more fun than some of ours. There are even things like poker thrown in the mix! They’ve have grown in popularity so much that some people are even making a business out of these showers for dudes. In fact it is their specialty. There are also boards dedicated to the idea on Pinterest.

I know some mamas out there may think dads-to-be are stealing their thunder, but I honestly think this is a great idea. Sometimes we complain the guys are not into the pregnancy or are not into being a Dad. Now it seems like things are turning around.

This is a time when more and more men are fighting for paternity leave. Many others are becoming stay-at-home dads. So, if guys want to get into it and have baby showers, go for it! It’s nice to see such enthusiasm about becoming a father. If they can have a little fun in the process and score a few boxes of diapers and wipes along the way, what’s the harm?
