12 Easy Steps
Compile a Baby Naming Ceremony

as the parent, can use your imagination in planning it.

baby to carry on your heritage? Would you like to share that with those

have Grandparents, or even Great Gandparents, Great Grand Uncles? What
role have they played in your life, and what role do you want them to
play in the life of your baby?
3. Is yours an Adopted
Would you like to share
some of your experiences while waiting for the arrival of your baby. If
you already have other children, do they want to make a commitment to
the new sibling? Is the child old enough to make a commitment to the new
family he or she has become a member of.

your child, or share with everyone your feelings or hopes for your baby?

support as responsible for helping to promote the welfare of the next

for the baby, or a way in which the guest intents to share his or her
talent and time with your child as your baby grows.

to write a message in it. This might include a helpful hint, or a hope
for the future, or a poem. Something the child will enjoy reading once
he or she is able to do so.
