How ridiculous with them waiting! When I worked for a Catholic hospital babies were baptized in the NICU.

Was this recently or back in the day?

It could also be because of their frail condition.

I was born in November and baptized in March of the following year. I always thought that was kind of a long time to wait. When I get pregnant, I plan to contact the priest and schedule the baptism well before I give birth. I'd even attend the pre-Jordan classes before giving birth if they'll let me.

It was in the 2000s.
