Why Babies Need To Wear White Cap or Bonnet During Baptism or Christening?

 Almost all baptism dresses and christening gowns come with a matching bonnet. This is because it's needed during the Christening ceremony where after pouring water and putting oil on your baby's forehead, the priest will ask you to cover your child's head with a white bonnet. 

So Why Do Babies Need to Wear Bonnet or Cap During Baptism?

Because the white cap symbolizes purity. A newly baptized child is washed from original sin and is pure in the eyes of God and Church until he or she commits his/her first sin post-baptism. The white cap symbolizes a cover to preserve the purity of the child.

That is the religious reason but there's also a practical reason behind it. After pouring water on your child's head, it will feel cold and you would want your child to feel comfortable and warm with a bonnet. 

Also thousands of years back, Churches are made of stones and often, it can get really cold inside it. Children wore caps and bonnets to avoid getting ill. 

So this is why all Elitedresses.com Baptism Dresses come with a matching bonnet.
