Then an unbaptized infant cannot attain Heaven?

The Catholic Answers

An unbaptized infant cannot attain Heaven. Christ has said very definitely, “Unless one be born again … he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” Jn. III., 3. I am not more severe than Christ in my denial. He declares that the ordinary principle of life received by human generation is insufficient. We must receive an additional life of grace by baptismal rebirth. An unbaptized infant has received natural life only and had one birth only. If it dies without Baptism it has no claim to the supernatural happiness of Heaven.
