I would really like to have Marsi's baby blessing quite quickly after she is born. My parents have to be moved out of their house by November 1st. I know I can have the blessing anywhere I would like, but I would like to do it at church on a Sunday because it is the easiest day to get people together. If I had the baby today we would want to bless her October 30th at 1.5 weeks old. Is that too young to bless her in public? Do you have to have a member of the bishopric in the blessing as well? We are on a time crunch here so that really is the ONLY day that will work because of my parents move. Should I just have it at my home or at the church?

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

If you are willing to take her to church that young you can certainly have her blessed then. You can choose exactly who you want in the circle. Usually that includes a bishopric member, but it doesn't have to.

There has to be a member of the bishopric present but they don't have to stand in the circle. At least, that's what I was told when we blessed Patrick at home. I've known people to bless 1 week old babies for the same reason as you...it's when they could get their families together. Just make sure you talk to the bishopric to make sure you've got everyone there who needs to be.

I don't see why not. Wyatt was blessed only hours after we got home from the hospital. And that was also because our entire family was together at that time.
