I know some do and some don't but I am interested in the religions that DO offer infant baptism not a ceremony or dedication.
I am not asking if it is right or wrong either. We have had that debate so many times already.

Depends on if your particular faith believes in original sin, if so then the child is born with the sins of the fathers and must be cleansed. When I was a Baptist (raised that way for many years) we did not baptise babies but instead would dedicate them to the church. Baptism was a public affirmation of accepting Jesus, so you had to be old enough to make the decision (usually around 9-12yo).

Catholics are not the only ones that have infant baptism.

Is a christening different from a baptism?
I know the Church of England christens infants.
