Poll: Age at baptism?

(Since this board is a bit slow!)
How old were you/DH/SO/your kid(s) at baptism?

----------------
I was 5 months old (and as a kid, I couldn't believe my parents waited so LONG to baptize me! Wink ).
DD1 was about 2.5 months old (and the youngest one baptized at that Mass, out of 6 babies).
DD2 will be 5 weeks old, due to schedule conflicts with the rest of the available dates!

(No idea on DH.)

My DS was 3 months old. My girls were a year old. They were baptized the day before their 1st birthday. With twins, we just could not get ourselves together enough to get it done before then. To say we were exhausted and overwhelmed is an understatement. Biggrin

I was 4 years old (list of complications that required that to be)

not sure on husband, I think he was a few months old but less than a year.

My kiddo was 3 weeks old.
Hopefully this one is within the first few weeks too but we still have to figure out who the Godparents will be and coordinate when with out of town family.

I honestly have no idea how old DH and I were for our baptisms.
DS was baptized the day before he hit 2 months.

Dh and I did RCIA last year so we were 33 when we were baptized Dirol
DS was almost 3.

I am not sure when to schedule the baptism for our new arrival? Should I call before he is born????? So I can try to have it done while on maternity leave???

I emailed them a month before my due date to inquire, and they responded with the upcoming baptism weekends (at our church it is once a month). I picked one, and they said to just let them know when baby was born so they could get more info (full name, birthdate, birthplace, names and religions of parents/godparents).

I was about 3 months old. We waited until our twins were 8 months old since they were born premature and the doctors recommended waiting until RSVP season was over.
