Well, the baby shower was at our house, and I didn't have anything else to do, and I felt that I should help with serving the guests so I went to my son's baby shower........because it would have been kinda f'ed up to leave and not help my pregnant wife serve the guests of the shower. Besides, I think that if people are going to give you gifts you should be there to accept them and thank them. It's kinda like not showing up for Christmas . The father of the baby should atleast be there to help with food and whatever else, and let your wife enjoy her party. I guess you could invite your guests' husbands but some other activities should be planned (ballgame, poker, something that guys would enjoy) while their wives have their fun.

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
where do you come from? its a shower for the baby not the mother. people give gifts whether it be a man or a woman. this comment is sexist. you just want to exclude men woman have bacholorett parties. that comment is not even relevant.Ive gone to plenty of baby showers and plenty of guys come to bare gifts for the baby to come.

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.
are you Caucasian? just wondering because i have gotten request from men to attend my baby shower...if they dont want to be there they dont have to. thats what invitations are for and rsvp. so you let the person decide and not be "dragged" into it.

well I have to disagree it's a baby shower they shouldn't go! And I have to agree with smoking the pot, getting drunk, no, buzzed perhaps, just not at the shower. It's a baby shower, do men carry the baby for nine months, no, so they shouldn't (don't deserve to) get showered too!

I technically was at my wife's baby shower however the building we rented had a restaurant style kitchen and I stayed in there the whole time cooking for the party. When the food was finally done I was streaming football from MacBook lol. So I didn't leave that area :P

I bet you're not married and if you have been you've been cheated on. Grow up, some woman just want their husbands around. I think the husband should attend if he wants, it is "his" baby also. Everyone's different.

Im not to sure it would seem right if the husband or boyfriend is attending the baby shower with a whole bunch of ladies. Its an old-fashioned tradition; I think it should stay like that!

That seems appropriate to me, though getting drunk might be over-the-top. Just smoke and relax

Wow, and women call men sexist? Several issuex with whats being said, "you didn't carry the baby for 9 months" your right I didn't. But I did deal with your emotional UPS and downs, go get you ice cream in the middle of the month, and lord knows what else.(a guy that doesn't the woman probly doesn't want there anyway) 2nd its our baby, not the guests. If daddy and mommy wanna be there deal with it. 3rd "this is our special day" yeah so is the bachloette party, bridal shower, hell add the wedding to, guys are happy with it being in a garage. So in conclusion, daddy wants to be there I think he should.....now my problem, I was asked to attend 1, by the mom to be. Daddy won't be there and no other guys. But momma called and insisted that I had to go.(no i'm not gay)

I am a male, and personally I love baby showers. Why should this be an only women event? Is it a crime to mix females and males unless there's sexual intercourse involved?

I personally think that women and men should be able to get along for one little social event that will, in the long run, benifit the baby. I dont see any problems with this.

There's nothing wrong with trying to come into the new age, but let's be honest here there are boundaries that should be adhered to and men need to act like men a baby shower is to celebrate the bond and eventual separation of child and mother it's a celebration that should be celebrated with women that have or will eventually experienced the same thing, a man has no place here cuz we simply cannot and never will fully know the gravity of bearing a child. So let's leave some traditions the way they should be let men be men and celebrate their traditions and women llikewise.

My husband attended our daughters babyshower. He had a blast and loved that I invited him. Matter of fact there was several men at the shower. They thought the games where silly but joined right in. And any man that thinks he is over it is selfish!!!
