  • Oldest is 5 years and none of them have been baptized. That's a choice for them to make when they are older.

  • my baby was dedicated on easter, so he was about 6 months, and he will be baptised later on when he takes the classes and knows what it means and asks to be baptized, doesnt matter what age as long as they understand and its something they want to do.

  • My children were dedicated at 3 months and one at six weeks. We don't baptize, we consider that a choice they make. But a formal church ceremony for babies is what you're looking at, right? So, mine were the ages listed above.

  • DD was 8 months. I wouldn't do it before 6 weeks though because they shouldn't be around crowds because they need to build up immunities.
