double baptism

My brother and I have children who were born a few months apart, and we are having them baptized together. What is the etiquette for invitations? We will be inviting 3 different families (ours, my husband's, and my sister-in-law's), but we don't want anyone to feel obligated to bring a gift for both babies when they may only be related to one of them. Any advice on how to word the invitations?

Dear Double~
I suggest you each send the invitation separately. The ones to your husband’s friends can have a note saying “we hope you come to Johnny’s christening” indicating which child is involved in their invitation, send jointly to your family members and send one to the in-laws with the name of their child in the note.
Or you can simply have two separate invitations for non family members. Good luck!

hi,
I have a similar question...I don't want people to feel obligated to give two gifts if they're related to both kids when they're only getting one meal. How do you ensure people only give one gift?
