what on earth am I going to put DS2 in for his christening?
DS1- I think: trousers, shirt and tank top. He is a toddler.

I just don't know what to do about DS2? A christening dress from M&S or JL?

Help please!

If you don't want to put him in a traditional robe, you can get a little white romper suit eg. this or this

If it's a chilly day you can wrap him up in the white blanket, which you'll need anyway as part of the service IIRC.

That debenhams one is lovely!

Damn it need a White blanket. Does it have to be white or would pastel blue do? I wasn't aware we needed a blanket. Ahh more things! I haven't even started on what I will wear! But if anyone sees a nice wrap dress let me know please. Size 10, large of nork-DD. 5ft 5ish would wear it with nude heels.
Blimey this is like organising a wedding!

Yes, it is just like organising a small wedding! I'm only familiar with Catholic baptisms where you definitely need a white garment to wrap the child in at a certain part of the service - I'm not sure if that's the case for CofE or others.

Ah ours will be C of E but will wrap him in our lovely handmade blanket made by his great great aunt. Seems quite fitting.

Thank you. I need to find invitations and cake! Oh Blimey!
