    Who is planning on having LO christened? :flower:

    I myself am not overly religious but my husband is Christian and I totally support him in his faith and we plan to educate our children with the Christian faith.

    I was wondering howsoon after birth people have planned for the Christening and how many God parent per child they are having? (We will be Christening our 2 yr old son at the same time)

    I am planning on baptizing my daughter as soon as i can. (I'm Roman Catholic) I have to take like 3 baptismal classes. My bebe will have one Godfather and one Godmother. The Godfather is my brother in law and I want my cousin to be the Godmother but idk if she'll be able to make it to where i live. If she can't then i am going to have my older sister as Godmother.

    We are thinking about it. My husband and I are both religious people, we just don't go to church. Occassionally we join my aunt's family at their country church, I've known the pastor there for about 10 years, so if we have the baby christened, then it will be by him. Christened or not we will raise a religious child.

    We dub godparents here christened or not, but I have too many people to choose from, lol. So basically if anything ever happened to my husband and I, the baby would go to my parents first. If my parents aren't around then, the baby will go to the one of my siblings who has a safe place to live, steady job, etc. =]
    My parents were proud of that decision, lol.

    We had Abigail chrsitened at about 6 months old. She has two godmothers and one godfather. As we are RC one of the godparents had to be Catholic, but the others did not.

    Also Baybeemama, one of the godmothers could not come to the chrsitening as she was aborad at the time, but she could still be a godparent. It was a shame she couldn't be there but I really wanted her as the godmother so we just had to nominate a 'stand in' for her on the day, so even if your cousin can't make it to the service, she can still be a godparent if you choose.

    we are not religious really but again would like our daughter to have the options when she is older so we will get her christened when she is about 6 months old. We'd like her to have 3 godparents - 1 godfather and 2 godmothers as thats what we both have - no idea who they will be yet tho as i want to make sure we make the right choices for her xx
