So, your Breast Friend or another awesome mama-to-be in your life is having a baby!

Eeek! That’s so exciting.

Another gorgeous rugrat to add to the crew.

If a baby shower is on the cards, then you’ve probably already hit the store and picked out a few adorable outfits, stuffed animals, or other cute baby gear. Who can resist the call of the baby section?

But now comes the card…hmm…how do you know what to write in a baby shower card? Something funny? Sweet? Sentimental? Words of advice? Is there etiquette for what to write in a baby shower card?

Fear not, Breastie. We’re here to give you all the inspiration you need to fill your pal’s baby shower card with words of sweet love.

How to address a Baby Shower Card

This is something that stumps a lot of people.

Do you address the card to the mama-to-be? The parents-to-be? The baby? 

Check the invitation to see if there are any important details such as if the baby shower is just for the mom or for the couple. If you’re not sure, you can always send a quick message to the host to clarify. If it’s for the couple, then adding both their names to the card is the way to go. If it’s just for the mama, address it to her and think about the formality. You can always call her by her nickname or a cute name such as “To the awesome mom-to-be” or “To the mom of my future BFF.” 

When in doubt, just writing “Dear (name)” is totally fine. 

    What to Write in a Baby Shower Card

    OK.

    You’ve addressed the card. First step done.  

    Now you need to figure out what to write in the card to show your love and support. Baby shower card messages don’t need to be long. Again, think about your relationship with the mom-to-be. If it’s a sister, daughter, cousin, or close friend, you can have a bit of fun with your message, including shared jokes and memories, and maybe even some heartfelt advice. If the expecting mom is a work colleague or someone you don’t have a lot of history with, then keeping things short, sweet, and caring is ideal.

    In general, a baby shower card message should include one or a couple of the following:

    • Congratulations on the upcoming arrival
    • Your best wishes and love for her labor and delivery
    • Words of encouragement and support for her parenting journey
    • Something personal (either heartfelt or funny) that touches on your relationship with her or the couple
    • Some words of advice from your own experience of parenting (without sounding preachy)

    Let’s look at a few baby shower message ideas to get the ball rolling.

    Funny Baby Shower Messages

    If you and your Breastie have a shared sense of humor then why not write a baby shower message that’ll make her chuckle?

    • Hello gorgeous new baby…goodbye boozy nights out!”
    • “Enjoy every minute of your shower today. It might be the last one you get for a while!”
    • “I’m so glad you’re used to staying up all night partying with me…it’s great training for staying up all night with your new little party animal.”
    • “Hello precious new baby. Goodbye, precious sleep!”

    • “I have never been more excited for anything than becoming a grandparent. Thank you for this incredible gift.”
    • “It brings us so much happiness to welcome our baby’s very own baby into the world!”
    • “Thank you for promoting us to ‘Grandparents.’ We’ve already converted the spare room into a nursery.”

    Writing the Perfect Baby Shower Message

    When you welcome a new baby into the world, it’s one of the most exciting events, and one of life’s greatest joys. 

    When writing a baby shower card, writing something emotional with sentimental value will always be appreciated. Whatever you choose to write in a baby shower card, make sure that it comes straight from your heart. That way, it’ll always sound genuine, personal, and full of love.
