We've got gobs of great Co-Ed Couples Baby Shower Ideas for you!

Attending a co-ed "couples baby shower", or "Jack and Jill" shower is so much fun!

It tends to be more laid back and full of laughs!

Men may be a bit skeptical at first, but they usually end up having a blast!

They get to mingle with some guys, drink a little beer, smell some "dirty diapers" (I'll explain later) and eat some great food!

Be careful not to make it too much fun or they may want to attend all of your future "girl" events.

As the hostess, it is your job to make sure everyone is comfortable and having a good time. Below are some cutting-edge ideas to make your shower a hit!

Co-Ed Couples Baby Shower Games

Couples baby shower games are easy to plan and take the awkwardness out of the event! If you haven't had the chance to experience the new trend of "couples baby showers" they are pretty fun! So go ahead, choose a few games and have a blast!

Dirty Diaper Game - The first of our couples baby shower games requires a keen smelling sense.

  • Using a Sharpie pen, number 6-8 disposable diapers. 
  • Melt or smash different kinds of candy (such as M&M's, Snickers, Baby Ruth, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups) into each diaper.  
  • Give each guest a piece of paper numbered 1-8 (or how ever many diapers you are using.)
  • Pass the diapers with the smashed candy around the room.
  • Each guest must examine and smell the contents of the diaper to determine what the candy it is.
  • They then write down which candy bar they think is on each diaper.
  • The guest with the most right wins a prize. Have your camera ready for this game, you will get some priceless pictures!

Big Balloon Belly Race - This is an excellent co-ed or couples baby shower game idea!

  • Blow up some balloons and have all of the men and women in the room put one under their shirts.
  • Then have a race to see which one of them can tie their shoes the fastest! The winner gets a little prize.   

Beer "Bottle" Game
- This game is a little challenging. But it is a great icebreaker. The men at the shower may be feeling a little out of place. This one should loosen them up a bit. 

  • Fill several baby bottles full of beer.
  • Hand each one of the contestants a bottle, and say ready, set, drink!
  • The guest to finish his/her bottle first is the winner.  You can substitute juice for those who don't want alcohol.

Wet Diaper
- For this game you will need to break up into groups of 3-4.

  • Give each group a disposable newborn sized diaper, a large pitcher of water and a measuring cup. 
  • Have each group predict just how much water they think the diaper will be able to hold without any water leaking out of it. 
  • Have them write down their prediction before beginning.
  • The group who comes the closest wins a fabulous prize!

It Takes Two, Baby

  • Have each couple stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder.
  • Give each couple a baby doll and an outfit to dress her in.
  • Have the man use only his right hand and the woman use only her left hand to assist each other in dressing the baby. This is a hard one, but so funny!

We recently took a readers' poll asking for popular couples baby shower games, and this was the 10 most common answers:

1. Diaper Changing Race - men (and women) race to see who can change a diaper the fastest.

2. Dad Jokes - Ask the men (or men and women)  to come up with their best dad jokes and then have everyone vote on the funniest one.

3. Pin the Pacifier on the Baby - This is a variation of the classic "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" game, but with a baby twist.

4. Baby Bottle Chugging Contest - This game is exactly what it sounds like. Guests chug baby bottles filled with juice or water as quickly as they can.

5. Baby Food Taste Test - Blindfolded guests taste different types of baby food and try to guess the flavor.

6. Baby Shower Trivia - Test the knowledge of the men (and women) attending the baby shower with baby-related trivia questions.

7. Baby Photo Guessing Game - Guests bring a baby photo of themselves, and everyone has to guess who is who.

8. Baby Name Game - Guests write down their favorite baby names and the parents-to-be choose their favorite.

9. Baby Pictionary - Divide the group into teams and have them take turns drawing baby-related words and phrases.

10. Diaper Derby Relay - In this game, guests are divided into teams and have to race to see who can diaper a baby doll the fastest.
