Celebrate the Parents-To-Be With a Co-ed Baby Shower

To celebrate the arrival of a new baby, consider throwing a coed baby shower where both the parents-to-be take part in the fun. There are plenty of ideas for creating an inclusive shower that sets the stage for equal parenting and equal excitement. 

Since a coed baby shower celebrates both the mom and dad, be sure everyone's friends are included on the guest list. As this may change the tone and activities, cater from the expectant parents’ favorite local restaurant or throw a themed barbecue.

If you’re considering games for a couples shower, think outside the box. Try a baby food taste test by removing the labels from baby food jars and blindfolding the expectant parents – then let them guess what’s in each jar. You’ll definitely want to throw in some surprises; just don’t make them too icky! Another game, which can also serve as a dress rehearsal of sorts, is to have a diaper-changing race. And it’s not just all about speed—accuracy counts! Borrow a few baby dolls and grab some Huggies Little Snugglers Newborn Diapers to set the race up! Make sure to have someone with a stopwatch on their phone ready to keep time.

When it comes to gifts, think about things the new parents can enjoy together. Ask your local guests to sign up for a babysitting slot so the parents can have a night out together after the baby comes. Consider diaper bags that are stylish for both mom and dad to tote around. And don’t underestimate the power of practical gifts as they can be the most appreciated of all. Guests can bring a package of Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers in Newborn or the next size up, as well as Huggies Natural Care Wipes. Creating a well-stocked supply closet is one of the best things you can do for new parents – it may help them avoid those desperate midnight diaper runs! After all, giving parents more time to hug and snuggle their newborn is the best gift of all.
