Is it okay to have a baby shower after your first child?

Traditionally, a mom is given one baby shower for their first child. After that, most moms are expected to have acquired the necessary amount of things for babies 2, 3 or 4. However, there are several "new schools" of thought on this issue.
For instance, if a new mom is having her first baby in several years, or perhaps with a new partner, this may justify having another baby shower. It's not uncommon now for women to have children 10-15 years apart, in which time most baby items will have been disposed of and new "necessary" items have come into vogue.
