May we have our baby baptized twice?


I am just wondering if it is wrong to have a baby baptized twice?
My husband’s family does not speak english much and my family either. My side is French and his side is Polish.
Would it be wrong to have my son baptized once in a Polish Catholic Church and then once in a French Catholic Church?

Through the sacrament of Baptism we enter into the life of Christ. To attempt to confer the sacrament a second time in order to satisfy family preferences is to make those preferences more important than the sacrament.

It would be very wrong to have the child baptized twice.
