In my opinion, it is not. I think that firm support can be found in Scripture for baptism of children prior to the age of reason or accountability (although not all Christian denominations agree on that issue). However, with regard to Communion, Paul speaks specifically in 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 of the ability to discern the presence of Christ's body and blood as a prerequisite for proper receipt of the sacrament, and also states that those who partake of Communion without that discernment bring God's judgment upon themselves. In my opinion, very young children are not capable of such discernment, or of conducting the self-examination that Paul prescribes in this passage prior to receiving Communion.
