People have asked…

Are you having a baby shower?  What can we get you?

The answer is that as Jews we don’t have baby showers.  With a boy, gifts are brought to the Bris and with a girl, gifts are brought when people come and visit baby and mommy at home.

That being said people have asked what they can get us so I have made a list of the things we will need/want when theSQL arrives.  What would really be appreciated is new born nappies 🙂

  1. I had no idea Jewish people don’t have babyshowers.

      Yup, technically you are not supposed to buy anything for the baby before she arrives… its an old tradition, part of the reason we wait until 3 months to tell everyone we are pregnant, its to avoid the Evil Eye…
      Some very religious people wont say anything about being pregnant until they are 6/7 months along!
