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.

What are the opinions here on male circumcision? I've been seriously considering not getting my boy circumcised if he is a boy lol.

If I have a little boy he'll be kept intact. DH is intact, so it's a non issue here.

I'm not planning on circumcising if I have a son.

Ditto! The Canadian pediatric society doesn't even recommend it anymore, and it is considered elective surgery. Not sure about you guys below us

We viewed it as a needless procedure and weren't comfortable making decisions for an infant to have elective surgery. Looking alike wasn't a concern, since we felt that child and adult genitals look different anyway. And it's easy enough to talk to a child about differences in bodies

My ex was done so when we had our boys they were done. It cost $100 at the time to do it. With Nico I researched it much better and Doug and I decided to leave him intact. He has enough surgeries ahead of him. We see no point or reason to have it done and many reasons not too. So he is intact.
