At this age?
I had ds1 in a waistcoat and trousers when he was christened but he was 11months, I don't want ds1 to look over dressed iyswim.

nah, I really don't think it is possible to overdress a baby at their own christening (IMO at least). well, unless they have all frills on their heads too maybehmm.

and thinkof the gowns that are tradition......waistcoat and trousers is almost naked after the flouncy type of gowns on offerwink.

also, DS1 was 6mths being christened, in waistcoat and trousers......and looked so nice, and DS2 was 11mths but really really tiny (in fact DS1's outfit was too big on him), and he looked scrummy too. once they were christened tho, I did takae off their waistcoats and leave them just in tiny shirts......far easy and less hot for them.

I put my ds (6m at the time) in a pair of white dungarees he'd been given and had never worn (baby + white clothes + weaning = lots of washing). With a white t-shirt underneath. Then he got wrapped in a white blanket as part of the service.

When we got home i changed him into something "normal" for the party - I wanted to people to see his trendier clothes too <<sad>>

All the john lewis ones are sold out.
Hmm, monsoon, there is a monsoon near us, it's the outlet though and I'm not sure if they do kids stuff.
Probably have to get something online.

ds wore a sailor suit type thing. i also bough a pair of white silk dungarees cos i wasn't sure which i preferred.

My ds wore linen trousers with a white collared t shirt and like white cricketers tank top over it - was from next as a christening outfit but more like smart wear - he wore a bright green bumgenius nappy as well which shows through his trousers on all the photos blush

You can buy buy romper suit for christenings if you want something more traditional this one is corduroy but they do silk ones too.

I'd be inclined to go for something like shirt and trousers (or dungarees).
