What is proper etiquette for a second baby shower?

If you’re on your second (or later) baby and planning on holding a baby sprinkle shower, you may be wondering if it’s appropriate to set up a registry. In a word: Yes! It’s perfectly acceptable to register for your sprinkle — in fact, it makes things easier for friends and family who want to offer a token gift.
How many baby showers can you have?
Is it okay to have more than one baby shower? Definitely! Friends, coworkers and family are as excited about your new baby as you are, and chances are they want to shower you with gifts. Since it’s up to others to throw the shower, you can have as many or as few as you like.

If a co-worker and your best friend offer to throw showers, and they’re different groups of friends, it’s perfectly acceptable to accept both invitations.

What time of day should you have a baby shower?

Should I have two baby registries?
Don’t make multiple registries.
