High risk vs shower planning
grandpop58 posted:
Hi We have a dilema. Our daughter is expecting our 1st grandson. She is 25 weeks along and has been assigned complete bedrest til she reaches term or as long as possible.
How do we go about planning a baby shower? Our 1st thought is to delay the shower til the baby arrives, as we don't know when that may be. Doc says it could be any time or she could carry to term.
If we delay the shower, what essential things are needed between the babys birth and the shower? How would that impact invited guests gift ideas?
If we go ahead with planning as a "normal" shower, How do you plan a date and send invites knowing it may be cancelled if he arrives early?

If anyone has had similiar expirences, would love to know how you made out.

In your case, I would wait until the baby is born and it can be a welcoming shower.

As for essential things needed, diapers, onesies, sleep sacs, etc.
