Ask on Inquiring Moms

This is a very personal decision between parents and how they plan to deal with religion within the family unit. If you have any reservations whatsoever, or feel you are doing it for someone else, it is important to acknowledge this and discuss it with your spouse or whoever is putting pressure on you. Baptisms are generally not traumatic to the infant physically or mentally, however if you feel it may cause regrets later it is something you should carefully consider.
