1./ Caring about infants is legal excuse to miss the Sunday or Holy Day obligation

2./ The valid presence required from the beginning of the Offertory to the Communion of the priest inclusive

3./ Imho the presence in the crying area is presence, and one changing in the restroom does not breaks the presence

Cant believe Im saying this....but glgas got this one right!

If you have an infant....dont worry about it. Its legitamte even to stay at home if necessary
