I think it so silly for men to attend. It is for women and the men should stay at home.And also if you bring your children make them mind and not let them run wild.I went to one and a lady let her kid go up and open the ladies baby gifts.It upset the young lady.

NO! It's like women going to a Man's Bachelor party...It's tacky and no longer is a shower when men are involved it becomes a party

Maybe someone should start a new tradition and let the men host a baby shower. MEN ONLY! I mean, how hard could it be to go out and buy a few things for your new baby, dad? I'm not talking about the over-decorating, cake eating, ooh's, and ahh's. There's nothing wrong with having a few buddies over to celebrate the future coming of a beautiful life. Keep it simple, and go for it dad!

I think that the showers are for women then should just show up to carry all the gifts at the end. I feel bad for any guy who has to sit through this stuff. I barely could tolerate the corniness of my own bridal shower, my husband would have been stabbing his eyeballs out.

I do think men should have a day with the boys and REGULARLY! These shouldn't just be on days when the wife has an event to go to. I gladly let my husband go out with the boys or let the guys come over because that's a few hours that he isn't bothering me!:-)

YES!!!! The party is for baby. The father should be a part of everything that so silly that it's just for women. If men want to go WHY NOT!!!!!!! It's called a BABY SHOWER not a mommy shower.

I think the father's should be at the baby shower. It's a celebration of the baby and the gifts are for the family. Family and friends attend and I think it is respectful for the father to show his appreciation too.

Guys should only attend if they WANT to...most guys don't want to because of the imbalance of testosterone verses some guys want to be there and by the way ...he helped make the sure...why least let the poor guy come and eat some snacks and cake and let all the women pat him on the back and tell him what a good daddy he will be and give him advice he's heard 100 times's not bachelorette party for Pete's sake!!! Just relax...:o)

I'm about to have my first kid and a friend suggested that when they have a kid they were going to do a joint thing both women and men. Honestly there isn't a single self respecting man who wants anything to do with a social function like this. Convincing my friends to come to my baby shower would be impossible. The result is that the baby shower has all the husbands of her friends. That's honestly my nightmare, just a bunch of dudes being dragged into another social situation none of them want anything to do with. Ladies do you men a favor and just tell them it's for women only. They won't be offended and you won't have to buy more food and beer.

I just asked this question because I am about to have my first great grandchild and I wasn't sure it was appropriate, after it's been a while since my last child was born (50 years ago). I know this is a new day, hell a new century and I just wasn't sure. But Lola of Florida said it right, it is a Baby shower not a Mommy shower. Dad and his cronies should be invited. Thanks to everyone for your comments. They were a big help.

My cousin , who is like my brother, wants to go 2 his REAL brother's baby shower, I told him is 4 women only , and he said that his brother wants hi 2 go so they can smoke pot and get drunk in the garage while the women are in the house. Does any one agree/disagree with that scenerio?

I beleive it is a womens day and men should have there own baby showers . The wifes who think the husbands should be at baby shower must be co-
depenent on there husband and that is really sad.
Husband and wifes should do seperate things from one another.

It takes 2 to make a baby, and a family to raise it. The more family around supporting the parents the better. We should learn that from the animal kingdom, the whole family raises the babies. The indians raised their young as a tribe. There is less and less family time in our culture! Men should attend showers....the father, the grandfather, uncles ect.!!!!

Men and women both should be invited to attend. Some of you people should come into the new millenium.
