Our youngest daughter just got baptised on Sunday. She’s 18 months. Everything went great. There were no dramas.
But I am interested to hear from those who support the practice of infant baptism, at what point does infant baptism become adult baptism? Our daughter surprised us with her advanced communication skills (far quicker than her brother). At 18 months she can clearly and audibly say ‘No, I really don’t want to!’ (she says it a lot). My question is, if she said that during the baptism (which she didn’t, but it was a very real possibility), what do you do? Pack-up and sit down? Tell her to quieten down and do what she’s told? Is 18 months too late to do an infant baptism? The whole Baptism thing gets pretty weird when you dissect it like this, doesn’t it?
