Funny baby shower messages

Of course, parenthood is more than just cooing over the new little one. There’s all the… other stuff that comes with it. Why not send a funny new baby card to remind them of everything they’ve got to look forward to.

  • The fact you’re having a baby is awesome – shall we book our next night out three years in advance?
  • Worried about not getting enough sleep? Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll get used to it, eventually.
  • You’re having a tiny human! I can’t wait to meet them.
  • Oh my God, you’re having another baby! Careful, any more and you’ll be outnumbered.
  • This is getting out of hand, now you’ve got two of them!
  • Congrats on your tiny human! Good luck, you’re gonna need it.
  • Your baby isn’t even born yet and you’re already giving off big dad energy.

Cheeky baby shower wishes

If you know the parent’s really well, then you might even be able to get away with a cheeky new baby card message, something that’s sure to get a tongue-in-cheek laugh.

  • Oh god, you’re having another one?
  • Enjoy the new baby – I’ll enjoy sleeping all night and not wiping someone else’s arse.
  • Sure, your baby will be cute to begin with, but just wait until it hits the terrible twos.
  • Now, I know you two can both take care of plants, but it’s important to remember that babies are a little bit more complicated than them.
  • Congratulations on creating your first human, I guess you finally figured out where babies come from.
  • Sh*t’s getting real! …literally, it’s gonna be everywhere. Congrats!
  • You think you’re going to have any free time? Ha!
  • It’s okay – I’ve heard they bounce. Congrats and good luck!

Maternity card messages
