First of all, I come from a very devoted Mormon family and have formed my own opinions about religion that basically go with most of the teachings of the LDS church but not all. One belief I am very certain on is that baptizing a baby is not needed; each person is held accountable for their own sins, not for those of Adam. If you don't know much about the Mormon religion when a baby is born they are given a blessing to help them throughout their life. I had my two year old daughter blessed when she was born and am pregnant with my second little girl. The thing is my husband (not my first daugthers biological dad) isn't religious but his family is Catholic and wants her to be baptized. While I feel I have the right to say no to a baptizm can I turn around and get her blessed? I really want some outside points of view, I don't want to offend anyone but at the same time in my mind a baptizim is a commitment while a blessing is more of a hope for the baby.
