Worried about baby mikveh

Hey everyone I have a question about mikveh’s for babies. My partner isn’t Jewish and we just had our first kid. We decided to raise her Jewish. But the Rabbi wants her to be washed in a mikveh.

This sounded fine at first, but I have been doing research and it looks like you have to fully submerge the baby in water.

My daughter is 4 months old and the idea of fully submerging her in water terrifies me.

Is it possible to pour water on her head and face instead?
