When we have a kid we will likely be raising them in the Lutheran church, where babies are typically baptized as, well, babies-lol. We see it as a sort of entry rite into the Church. DH and I were both baptized as babies, and both want it for any child we have. Even if we were attending a church that didn't do infant baptism we'd probably have it done at his parents church.

A couple of months ago there was a baptism at the church we've been going to. The little girl was probably 8 or 9 months old. The pastor had any children in the congregation come up and sit on the floor so that they could see what was going on. He did the baptism ceremony, then carried the child in his arms around for the congregation to see and welcome. It was cool, and the baby was surprisingly cool with it all. No tears-just taking it all in.

Later on when you are older you go through Confirmation, essentially confirming the faith you were baptized into.
