When I was pregnant with my second baby, we celebrated with a baby sprinkle. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to baby sprinkles. Yours may not be the full gift-fest as a shower (or it may be — that all depends on what the mom-to-be wants!). But usually, it’s more like a fun party that happens to involve a baby-centric theme. That’s why it’s called a baby sprinkle instead of a shower. Cute, right?

Since we already had bottles, onesies, a baby monitor, and other basics from our first baby, we didn’t need to register for any new baby gear. But, a diaper cake is always appreciated, because you really can’t pass those down from one kid to the next. It was also nice to receive fresh clothes (read: without the big kiddo’s spit up on them) and new toys during our baby sprinkle.

If you’re in the mood to celebrate baby #2 (or, 3, 4, or 5), check out this roundup of super stylish baby sprinkle ideas. They range from actual sprinkles that top cakes to raindrop-themed ideas to really bring the “sprinkle” idea home.
