Conditional Baptism/Confession

Hello y’all! If a person has a conditional Baptism because they do not know whether they have been baptised or not and by chance have already been baptised, do they still need to go to confession for the first time for previous sins?

I would say they should. If the conditional baptism was valid, then they don’t have any sins. If , however, their conditional baptism was not valid, ie they were baptized before, then any sins they committed after that previous baptism would still be on their soul. They should go to confession before receiving any of the other sacraments.

And welcome to the Forum!!
