A Nappy Braai - The Dad To Be Baby Shower

What better way to celebrate impending fatherhood than a braai with your mates and family, along with a supply of much needed nappies? While many fathers attend baby showers, a baby shower usually puts the focus on the mom to be. A nappy braai is the perfect way to have a more inclusive celebration for both parents to be.
