I just wanted to mention that in my Christian tradition we are taught that babies and people with mental disabilities go to heaven. So we're not different from Mormons in that respect (though there might perhaps be differences in the theological mechanics; I don't know enough about Mormons to be sure about that).

Other Christian traditions might take a different view... I've heard that the Roman Catholic church teaches that babies go to heaven as long as they've been baptised; otherwise they go to limbo for a while. But I'm prepared to be corrected if I've got that wrong!
