Babies are born innocent and are not capable of sinning - they haven't reached the age of reason.
Are you referring to the concept of original sin? Original sin is the loss of grace and innocence that was ours before it was lost by Adam and Eve. Original sin has corrupted our nature so that we have a tendency to sin. Baptism washes away the stain of original sin and bestows grace.

babies are like a "blank page" on a brand new journal, what you start putting in it is what you end up with... Baptising a little baby is senseless! (po) baptism is a celebration ,a new beginning , starting a new way of life bcz you recognize that the way you lived was against God's will,and many more reasons... a baby is not capable of recognizing this,and a baby is innocent from this, Jesus himself was an adult when he was baptised, when he was a child he was brought to the temple to be blessed! that's all a baby needs,parents that recognise that He/She needs Gods BLESSING! not GODS forgiveness,at least not yet!
