Pagan babies

I know that Christians have a Christianing. And Wiccans have a Wiccaning. Do other Pagan traditions, besides wicca, have a baby ceremony for their new addition?

  • You can do a baby blessing, to welcome the new one! Just google Pagan Baby Blessings and you should come up with several sites that can give you different ideas. We are planning one for mine when he is about 2 or 3 months. Good luck :)

  • I didn't do any kind of formal ceremony for my kids. There are WAY to many different religions in my and my DH's families to suit them all. I just took each of them in my arms shortly after I got them home and asked Mother and Father God to watch over and protect them. I also asked that Mother God be there when they needed strength and Father God to give them minds that would always question. I kind of regret that one now. lol

  • I don't actually have a name for either of my gods. I just call them Mother and Father. No one name has struck me as to who it is.
