The baptism of the child, kids

The first major event in the life of a baby is baptism. This is an important step not only for the child, but also for his parents. Parents need to prepare for the mystery of baptism in advance. I want to share my experience in the baptism of children.

What you need to know?

I want to say that the sacrament of baptism is an important and responsible event in the life of every person. This is not a tribute to fashion, and the admission of the child to the church. After the sacrament of the child, it is desirable to drive to church.

During baptism, the child is given a personal name, one of the saints. It is this saint that becomes the patron of the baby. Most often, the name of civil and Orthodox coincide. But it happens in a different way. For example, our youngest daughter’s name is Ulyana, while her baptism name is Juliana.

Age for baptism

In the church there is no age limit for the baptism of the child. Many independently accept the Orthodox faith at a mature age.

As a rule, babies are baptized forty days after birth. Up to this point, a young mother cannot enter the temple, as she is considered unclean.

We baptized both daughters before the year when they were about six months old. In general, it is better to focus on the child, how he reacts to strangers, how he behaves in public places. Well, if a child is calm, then he will easily withstand the whole mystery of baptism.

Our daughters viewed with interest what was happening around, they did not cry. And there were children who constantly cried and wanted to be only in the hands of the mother, and during the sacrament of the children keep the godparents. Boys keeps godfather, girls – godmother.

How to choose godparents?

As a rule, we choose godparents from close relatives and friends. It is important that they are not married and are not siblings among themselves.

You should also choose such godparents who attend church themselves. After all, the godparents play the role of the spiritual educator of your baby.

Clothes for baby

It is necessary to dress the child so that it was convenient to change his clothes. For the girl, do not forget to cook a hat.

You also need to prepare a large towel, in which you wrap the child after it is dipped into the font.

Also, as our mother advised us, it is better to baptize brothers and sisters in one baptismal shirt. It is believed that then they will be more friendly. We baptized our daughters and nephew in one vest, she dresses during the sacrament itself.

What to take with you?


In addition to clothes and towels for a child, you must purchase a cross and a string. If you wish, you can take a camera and camcorder. We removed the mystery of baptism.

Often the godfather pays the rite, and the godmother buys a cross and a towel.

Festive table

After the sacrament of baptism is completed this event is celebrated at home. There are no strict rules for celebrating. Parents simply lay the table and celebrate this event in the circle of relatives and friends. We celebrated in the country.
