    Question At what age were your children baptised/christened etc?

    Just wondering

    There seems to be a trend towards later christenings now .

    All other religious equivalents are welcomed to answer also .

    Both my boths were around 9 months, only because that's how long we had to wait as the church was "booked out". Otherwise we would have done it around 2-4 months.

    im not going to impose my choices on my kids when it comes to religion, they can decide when they are older...

    cause jesus was how old when he was baptized?

    Aidan was 6 months old. We were going to have him baptised the day he was born as he was supposed to need an opperation. Not because we believe in limbo but because I wasnt baptised until I was pregnant because I wanted to be fully Catholic like my hubby and my baby to be so if something had of happened it would have defeated the purpose for me. So then after that I found it really hard to do it. I think it brought back memories. A couple of people in the parish were quite rude about it which also detered me from doing it for a while. Then I realised I wanted my son baptised for us not for everyone else so stick it to everyone lol.

    We wanted DS to choose his own path re: religion but still wanted to acknowledge his birth in some way. We had a naming ceremony for him on his first birthday, it was a beautiful ceremony and a great way to celebrate his birthday as well!

    DS will be baptised when he is about 15/16months due to FOB being posted and won't be returning until then.

    He will be baptised the same as his father and I, and if he chooses later on in life he does not want to be that religion, then he is more than welcome to change - just like I did

    DS was 9 months. We went home to Mum's - didn't see the point doing it where we didn't know anyone. It coincided with Dad's 60th so a double celebration. Was lovely.

    Will probably do the same with this one after winter. He'll be a year old then.
