Babies aren’t always christened as newborns, and if they aren’t, then the outfit may be more of a challenge. It’s quite clear what a baby should wear for a traditional christening, but not necessarily for an older child.
You can still opt for a traditional christening gown if this is what you would like. It may be a little harder to find one in your baby’s size, so it might be worth thinking about having a gown handmade. This can be a good option if your baby is a little older and is able to walk and move around because it will give them the freedom to move without damaging or ripping the gown.
Many tailors and seamstresses will be able to make you a custom gown. You will just need to move fast, as there might be issues if your baby is at an age where they are growing quickly!
