What kind of babies make good models?

‘They have to be photogenic, ideally with bright eyes, clear skin and very smiley,’ says Sharon Obee, director of the Truly Scrumptious baby modelling agency in London. But it's about more than just looks.

‘We also want quirky babies with plenty of character – they’ve got to have a sparkle about them,' Sharon continues. 'It’s also about temperament – they’ve got to be good natured and sociable to put up with meeting lots of strangers.’
