What religion are they?  like others say each church has different policies.  i am lds, so we typically don't baptize till they turn 8, Catholics do it in infancy, I don't know about other religions.

               You can not sin, unless you KNOW RIGHT from WRONG ?

 

           If you want to do it "Just to make him happy "  , OKAY .

since it's his wishes to see his daughter baptized schedule it at a church and go by whatever his religious background is....if he's catholic then have your dd baptized at a catholic church....easy as that....i wish the best for both you and your family

Not sure why you're telling me this when it doesn't affect me any. Go whine about what pisses you off to someone who cares, I'm going to sleep.

If your stbxfil has a certain church that he went to/goes to talk with their pastor first. Since they would know the family.
Some of my family is Lutheran and they didn't get baptized until they went through confirmation--and were dedicated when they were babies. But not all Lutheran churches are the same. Good luck!

 I would just go to a catholic church (if you are catholic and probably should go to the one you were baptized at). You would call them or see them in person and tell them you want to baptize your child. You would have to have the god parents picked out (at least one of them has to be catholic as well). They will let you know available dates for everything. You will have a sit down with a priest (one on one) and then take a baptism class.

 Most churches I have heard of that do small child/infant baptisms actually require the parents to take the vows for the child. You are dedicating them to the Lord, and promising to raise them in that faith. IDK of any that would do it just for the reasons you stated.
