What is a Sprinkle?


A Sprinkle is a celebratory gathering thrown for expectant parents that already have existing children.


In many cases, parents with multiples often have what is needed to care for a newborn. So, instead of being thrown another “baby shower”,  friends and family may throw a “Sprinkle”.


As the term suggests, the purpose of  a Sprinkle is not to “Shower” parents with gifts but to show support for the new addition. A Sprinkle is more limited in scope than a traditional baby shower. And while gifts are not expected, it is common for friends to bring small gestures such as diapers, wipes, breastfeeding accessories, and other newborn basics.


The event is less about gifts and more about love.
