Charliese was about 2.5 months so reasonably young. Hubby's family friend is the Priest who married us and performs all the services for family occasions and he was going away for a couple of months so we got in before then.

It was a stinking hot, December day when C was baptised but we survived. I feed her before the ceremony and then at the lunch afterwards we just came and went as we pleased. She also spent a lot of time sleeping in her baby carrier - which was also a way of keeping settled and not having her passed around like a doll.

Most of my friends have had their babies christened at 3 or 4 months so I think 12 weeks is perfect. My husband is Greek Orthodox and most of his side seem to hold them when the babies are between 9 and 12 months. I think this is because the Christenings are much bigger and more formal which means there is so much more to organise and save up for.

Yep the Greeks are like the Macedonian's. Where a Christening is a big deal, you invite about 150 people, have it in a reception center and it costs you about $10-15K.
We've already started planning ours (and my little angel isnt even born yet) We've pencilled in the reception, photographer, videographer, band and even the church. Just need my bub to arrive now so i can call everyone back and confirm it all. If we werent doing the big deal maso christening, we'd be doing it at about 4 months, but i need time to lose weight (i already have the dress im planning on wearing,) and organise another huge function.

I say provided the church is available there isnt any reason why you shouldnt be able to hold it at 3/4 months.
