What is Diaper Party?
A diaper party is a baby shower for men. It is also known as the Beer and Diaper party or Pamper Party.
Unlike a traditional baby shower, a diaper party is casual, low-key to celebrate dad-to-be. The dad-to-be and his buddies spend the day drinking beer and eating food at a diaper party.
It is usually hosted while the mom-to-be is having her baby shower. And you do not need to worry about decoration or fancy food at a diaper party. As long as you have beer and pizza or BBQ or takeout, you are good to go.
I like the simplicity of the diaper party, not only for the host but also for the guests. They don’t have to worry about dressing up for the party or putting their thoughts into buying a gift. Instead, the guests bring diapers of any size or wipes as a gift for a dad-to-be (almost like a diaper raffle activity minus prize draw for a baby shower)
And if you are extra thoughtful and want dad-to-be and his buddies to be involved, planning some diaper party games will be a bonus.
Here are fun, low prep, enticing diaper party games for guys to keep them engaged during the party.
15 Fun Diaper Party Games for Guys
Diaper party should be low prep, and that’s what I have tried to do by coming up with these simple yet fun diaper party games for guys.
1. Baby Bottle Chug
A diaper party is all about drinking beer and eating food. So why not turn it into a drinking beer contest to entice the game naysayer. The only twist here is that they will be chugging beer from the baby bottle with a nipple. So whoever finishes their beer first- with a nipple on- from the bottle wins. Or make it into a minute to win a game where they will have one minute to chug the beer from the baby bottle, of course with a nipple on.
The game is easy to setup

2. Sort the Candy
Parenthood is hard, and at one or another point, parents experience anxiety. So why not put their anxiety to test with Sort the Candy game.
Put the different colors of M&M candy in a cup. Invite the men and ask them to use only one hand for this game. Once they are ready, ask them to sort candies of the same color into a different cup.
You can play this game head-to-head or give them a 1 minute to sort all the candy.
If the player places the wrong colored candy in a cup, he is out of the game

3. Baby Food Guessing Game
Put your guest’s senses to the test with this baby food guessing game. Invite guests to play a game and blindfold them. They should use their smell and taste senses to recognize the baby food. You can use five different kinds of baby food jars for them to identify.
The person who identifies the most food jars correctly wins!!
You can also play this game without blindfolding the players but make sure you remove the label on each baby food jar.

4. My Water Broke
Why would women only get to say ‘My water Broke.’ This game will let guys say ‘My water broke’ without carrying a baby for 9 months.
For this game, you need to purchase tiny babies from Amazon. Then freeze each tiny baby in a water-filled ice cube tray. When guests arrive, give them ice in their drink. Whoever’s ice breaks first with a tiny baby in their glasses can scream ‘My water Broke’ and then you can declare him winner!!

Draw a picture of a Vagina with eggs on cardboard and stick it to the wall. Then cut the cardboard in the shape of sperm and attach a push pin to it.
Now invite players and blindfold them. Next, have them pin their sperm onto the eggs in the middle of the vagina. Now watch who gets their sperms on eggs correctly.

Whoever crosses the end line without dropping the balloon wins!! To make it extra competitive, players could try to drop competitors’ balloons without dropping theirs until they reach the end line.

How long Diaper Parties Last?
Diaper parties are more casual than the traditional baby shower and last between 2-4 hours. It is a casual party, so you can come and stay as long as you want. If the host plans diaper party games, it takes 2-4 hours to play the game and eat. If you only drink beer and eat pizza/BBQ party, you can come and go as you like.
Do you Bring Diapers to a Diaper Party?
Yes, Diaper parties are casual events to celebrate dad-to-be. Rather than buying other baby gifts, guests buy diapers and wipes to help parents financially, as diapers cost lots of money.
What Size of Diapers to bring to Diaper Party?
You can bring any size you would like to the diaper party. Babies come in all shapes and sizes, so it is hard to decide which size of diapers to bring to a diaper party. I usually get newborn or size 1 diapers at the diaper party, so even when the baby is preemie, parents can use it after the baby is a few months old. Size 1 diaper is suitable for babies that are 8-14 lbs.
Here is a diaper size chart so you have an idea of what size diapers to bring to a diaper party and what size diapers are most needed.
|DIAPER SIZE||WEIGHT||DAILY USE||Average age baby will wear the diaper size|
|Preemie||< 6 lbs||As needed||Until baby gains more than 6 lbs|
|Newborn||Up to 10 lbs||10-12 diapers/day||First 3-4 weeks|
|Size 1||8-14 lbs||8-12 diapers/day||First 3 months|
|Size 2||12-18 lbs||8-10 diapers/day||3 to 8 months|
|Size 3||16-28 lbs||8-9 diapers/day||5 to 24 months|
|Size 4||22-37 lbs||6-7 diapers/day||18 to 36 months|
|Size 5||>27||As needed||24 to 42 months|
Do you get a card for a diaper party?
Getting a card for a diaper party is not necessary. A diaper party is a casual event to celebrate dad-to-be. Guests usually bring diapers and wipes as a gift. So, it is totally up to you if you want to get a card to a diaper party.
If you don’t want to bring a diaper box to a diaper party, you can choose to get a diaper gift card to parents to encase it whenever they want once the baby is here. In addition, there is a diaper subscription gift card available at Amazon.
What is Baby Sprinkles?
Baby Sprinkles are similar to diaper parties but hosted to celebrate second-time parents or second child. The gifts are often diapers and wipes as diaper parties instead of other baby stuff or gear as most second-time parents have most of the baby gear they need.
How do you gift diapers in a cute way?
You do not need to gift wrap your diaper box for a diaper party. But if you want to diaper box to look cute, you can have it gift wrap and put a ribbon around the pack. But, you want to put in some extra work, you can turn your diaper box into a cute diaper cake. You will find tons of ideas on Pinterest on putting diaper cakes together with additional little baby essentials like a rattle, pacifiers, and baby spoons.
