How Do You Ask Guests To Bring Diapers To A Baby Shower?

You can put a short note on the baby shower invitations to encourage guests to bring diapers to the party. Take note of the word “encourage,” as you don’t want to insinuate anything to the guests, especially if some bring gifts. 

A more polite way to have guests bring diapers is to have a raffle. Tell the guests that one diaper pack will give them a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize. 

The prize can be a gift card or basket that guests want to get, so they would also bring more diapers for more tickets. Otherwise, you can state that you’d instead get diapers than other gifts, as guests are not obligated to bring both a gift and a diaper.

What Is A Diaper Party?

Baby showers traditionally honor the expecting mom, and the guests are only women. However, there is also a type of baby shower with only male guests, and it’s called a diaper party. 

You can also simultaneously have a diaper party, and a baby shower called a co-ed shower. It has both men and women as guests, ideal for parents-to-be who are both very involved in parenting. 

Back to a diaper party, it differs from a baby shower, not just because it’s exclusive to guys, but also because of the elements. A baby shower can be a tea party or brunch, while a diaper party usually serves barbecue and beer. 

And instead of baby shower gifts, a diaper party, from the name itself, has guests bring the expecting dad diapers to help him get started on the diaper stockpile once the baby arrives. That said, don’t be afraid to state size and brand references on the diapers.
