We know that lots of parents are wondering whether their baby is suitable for baby modelling.
Here you may find answers for some of your questions.
You’re his mum or dad, so you know your baby is gorgeous but is that enough to get him on the front cover of a magazine?
What kind of babies are right for modelling?
They need to be photogenic and it would be also good if they were quirky with plenty of character – they’ve got to have a sparkle about them. It’s also about temperament – they’ve got to be good natured and sociable to put up with meeting lots of strangers.
Where is the need of baby models?
Everywhere where you see them: TV ad for nappies, to in-store advertising posters (think Baby Gap, Mothercare, Debenhams) for baby clothes.
There’s also the chance to play a starring role in baby care books, be on the front cover of baby magazines (just like M&B) or on packaging for baby toys or baby medicine.
What if my baby won’t stop crying?
Don’t worry – if your baby has been booked to cast in a commercial you’ll still get paid. For all big TV commercials or ad campaigns they book understudies – or ‘back-up babies’ – in case their star throws a wobbly.
