There is no prescribed age for a child to be baptized. While most parents prefer to perform this in the first few months after birth, some parents are opting to have their children baptized a little older. I guess this depends on the parents’ preference and the religion that they practice. Usually, Roman Catholics receive the Sacrament of Baptism early on in the child’s life. But other Christian faiths are favoring older ages when a child can answer for him or herself.

Baptism dresses for infants are easy to find. Traditional baptism dresses will be white or off-white. Baptism dresses are also of longer lengths since infants are not that mobile. Parents are always advised to find a comfortable dress made of cotton or linen that will allow the good circulation of air, and, generally, a happier baby.
