In the same way, wouldn't the Baptist practice of baby dedications be similar to the way paedobaptists have the parents vow before God and the congregation (and their child!) to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?

I'm sure there are many similarities here too. However the paedobaptist views their child in the Covenant of Grace and the credobaptist does not. It's this broader sense of inclusion that marks the differences we hold. That's also why I'm asking how Baptist's view their children.
