Tidbit from the GIRM

"The blessing of children or infants should not be encouraged while distributing communion. Children and infants are blessed with the full assembly at the end of Mass."

This makes perfect sense, but also makes perfectly sensible people get a little perturbed. After all, who doesn't want their baby to be blessed by a priest?
The solution: meet up with the priest in the Narthex and get the blessing after Mass.

Where did you find this in the GIRM. Can you give me a paragraph number? I can't seem to find it. Was this possibly in a commentary of the GIRM? Please email me an answer.

Thanks in advance,
