The Best Baptism Outfits for Infants

By Michele Wyan , last updated August 11, 2011

If you’re shopping for the best baptism outfits for infants, you’ll find a wealth of style options and price ranges. Your baby’s baptism is a sacred occasion that will be shared with family and friends and recorded in photos and videos. Such a momentous event deserves a special outfit. Your infant son could wear a traditional christening gown in cotton, gabardine, satin, or silk. If you prefer a more modern style, your baby boy could wear a romper, or silk or satin shorts or a tuxedo outfit to his baptism. The traditional baptism outfit for infant girls is a white christening gown adorned with lace, ribbons, and other frills. Below are some places to find the best baptism outfits for infants.
