Baby due to be christened shortly. Husband would like baby to wear his family's Christening Gown but my Mother wants baby to wear her family Christening Gown. I would rather not have to choose between the two and instead get a new Christening Gown but both Husband and Mother are saying that I should use theirs (I am feeling caught in the middle). Any advice would be appreciated please.

I would get a professional photo of LO wearing both gowns to give to Mother and DH and buy something new.

I had a similar dilemma. DD was 8 months old when the christening took place so MIL's gown was too small but my family's gown fitted perfectly -- but she wore the pretty lacy petticoat from MIL's gown underneath. Both Mothers were happy!

My DC wore both. Boys had paternal robe on outside, girl the maternal one.

Buy new, start your own tradition.
