Sip & See?

Many expectant parents will buck tradition in 2013 by swapping the pre-baby shower for a "Sip and See" party post-baby instead. Typically held in baby's first month of life, a sip and see allows friends and family to come by to "sip" a drink and "see" your newborn.

"Sip and Sees are becoming more popular because, let's face it, people want to see the baby!" says Jennifer of Jennifer V event design and planning, who adds it also makes sense for friends and family who live far away -- since they can see the baby and attend the celebration in just one trip. It's also a great option for second- or third-time moms who may not want to have a shower, but still want to get together with family and friends. We love the map-themed "Welcome to the World" Sip and See created by A Little Savvy Event and the traditionally Southern one by Kate Landers Events.

This is a fun idea!  Anyone planning to have a Sip & See instead of a traditional shower?

Neat. I've never heard of this, at least not called by this name - I have heard of a meet & greet. I like the idea for not-first babies who don't get baby showers, but the idea of a bunch of people coming over wanting to pass around my less than 1 month old (and me having to host a bunch of people in the midst of sleep deprevation, getting the hang of breastfeeding, etc.) makes me nervous, lol. I might consider doing one at 2 or 3 months.
