What happens if the baby parents decide to have both ceremonies, circumcision and baptistm. How should we feel about that.

People will feel about it the way they feel.  There is no right or wrong way. 
By “a circumcision,” do you mean a bris or just a circumcision in the hospital after the birth?
Personally, I feel having both ceremonies makes no sense. 
A bris welcomes the child into the Covenant of Abraham and marks him as a Jew.
A baptism joins him to Jesus and marks him as a Christian. 
You cannot be both.

I think “bris” is not the Yiddish term for “brit,” it is simply the Ashkenazic pronunciation. Like shabbos and shabbat.

Bris is both – the Ashkenazic pronunciation of the Hebrew word for circumcision (“brit”) and the Yiddish word for circumcision.
