When we were expecting our first child, my husband’s co-workers showered us with diapers! They gave us enough, in all sizes, to last quite a while. It was a huge expense that we could take off our plate and it was greatly appreciated.

Are diaper raffles over the top?
Sometimes it may seem that everything is celebrated in an over the top way and you may roll your eyes that yet another new way to celebrate or gift has been created. After all, it used to be that you were only showered with gifts when you had your first baby … not the 2nd, 3rd, and on and on.
If you’ve been invited to a baby shower and they have included information about a diaper raffle in the invite, you may feel the shower could easily bust your budget. In this case, you can adjust the price of your baby shower gift or make the decision to not participate in the diaper raffle.
When a diaper raffle is done on its own for someone you see often, it isn’t over the top at all as it is a simple way to celebrate a new little one!
What if the parents plan to use cloth diapers?
If the expectant parents plan to use cloth diapers, a diaper raffle will not be a good idea for them. Instead you could do something like a book raffle where friends and family shower the new little one with their favorite children’s book.
