This is a vital concern to ask, and naturally, to address. And as usual, there are a couple of different perspectives on when to hold the infant shower. Fortunately, nevertheless, these views aren't as open to question as they often are when it comes to whether a relative or non-relative need to hold the child shower (as we talked about above). So don't worry; this is a rather simple and straightforward difficulty to fix.
Now, the genuine problem right here is merely that there isn't a clear answer to the question: when should the shower occur? The answer to this will almost always depend upon elements that are specific to the mother-to-be, the friend and families, and other problems.
So as opposed to offering a "one-size-fits-all" answer here - which is something that we cannot do without understanding the details of your particular infant shower - let's simply take a look at the variables. Once you know these, you'll quickly have the ability to identify when the child shower ought to be held.
Let's beginning with mother-to-be. She may have a choice about when the shower need to be held; and this preference should be observed. The father-to-be might also supply input here, which is terrific and ought to belong to the overall decision-making process (we take a closer look at "couples" baby-showers in the future in this book).
Exactly what kinds of things might influence a mother-to-be's choice on when the shower should be held? A few of them prefer to have the shower when they're revealing; they might feel that there's something more appropriate (for absence of a better word) about holding a shower when individuals can really see that a child is on the means.
In useful terms, this implies that a shower might be held well into the 2nd trimester, or into the 3rd.
