This question just popped into my mind, and I'm not quite sure what the answer is. Take note that the baby in question would have died naturally, without outside influence.
Is there a proper way to "dispose" (I can't think of an alternate word) of the baby's remains?
Would it be appropriate to cremate the infant's remains and wear them in a locket? I've heard of one person who did this, and am curious if it is allowed under the Church's teachings.
I lost two babies and I named and buried them both and we always include them in our family. My sister was a nurse and she told me early on, (before it actually happened to me), to bury any baby I might loose and I will always know where they were buried and that I did all I could for them. I knew a lady that lost a baby at 6 months and just left it at the hospital. Many years later she was still wondering what happend to her baby. I am at peace with the loss of mine. God Bless, Memaw
