My son is 6mo. I only been to church twice since I was put on bed rest for my pregnancy about 4mo. pregnant. Both times I attended I has the baby with me and it was horrible and couldn't hear or see anything from the CRY room. The church I belong to was 45mins away and very large, no one seems to miss me and they is a new priest now. And my husband is now only home on Sundays and he never has been to church 'willingly'. I want to baptist my son but I really don't know where to start. Do I choose a church close to home? Do I choose a smaller church? Are there still churches with a nursery so I can accurately pay attention? I am currently Roman Catholic and willing to change I just really need to build a strong community around my new family.
If you go to CatholicsComeHome.org and click on "Find Nearby Parishes" at the top of the page, you will be able to enter your zip code and hopefully find a parish a lot closer than 45min away.
To baptize your son, you need to learn when baptism classes are. In my current parish, they are once every 6 months. In my previous parish, they were by private appointment only. You should call your local parish's office to ask when they are. Also, they may want you to register yourself at that parish, which takes only a couple minutes.
Also, my current parish does have both a cry room and a nursery, but my previous parish did not. If you can't tell by looking at an altenative parish's website, then you can call that parish to ask.

Start attending some churchs in your area. There are usually websites for churchs that give you an idea of what they are about , this can help you to decide where to look.
