Reason being that my dad will be coming down from North Qld in early Feb, so my little guy will be about 12 weeks old when they are here. I was thinking seeing as he missed being here for the birth that it might be nice for him to be here for the christening.
Is this do-able? Of course i will have to get in touch with the church to see about availability but i wanted to see if there was a reason people leave it till a bit later on...

It is moreso personal choice. The first few months of a bubs life (and yours) is usually quite hectic so our reason for waiting was just till they were abit older when timing was abit more relaxed etc.
We also tried to work it in a time that wasn't busy for other functions like birthdays etc.

Bella won't be christened anytime soon. She will have two god mothers who live overseas so they will need plenty of notice.
I don't think they are any hard and fast rules. My sister was almost 3 by the time my parents got around to it.

Elka was 7 months when we held her naming day
I was only 2 weeks when I was baptized

Three months later we had the baptismal ceremony in the Church to celebrate with family and friends.
We will have our baby baptised as soon as possible in the hospital too. It's something pretty important to us.
The Godparents we hope to choose live in NZ and we won't be over there until bubby is eight months old. We're hoping the family baptismal gown will fit but suspect it won't by then.

With Blair we're looking at having him baptised around March-April 2010 when things have settled down again, so he will be 4-5 months

Jack was baptised at 3 mths old as we wanted S's Mum to be there as she was the only family member on his side who could come over.

But the only downside i see which is what some of you said, is the sleep/eat patterns will not be sorted but oh well

As for feeding and sleeping patterns, you just make it work. You manipulate feeding times to fit in with the activities of the day. If they were any older I should think it would actually be more difficult.
