Hi, i've entered James in a 2 baby comps, and while he got 3 place for his age group and cutest smile both times , i left feeling a little bad about the whole thing.
They are mostly babdy organized, and and antother mum has mentioned there are a lot of people out there who take it really seriously and enter their child in every section AND change them into different clothes for each one!
I also felt bad because here i was tring to explain to a judge why my then 7 month old son wasnt really being his charming self, i mean he'd only missed his morning nap, had to wait around in a crowed shopping centre stuck in his pram for the last hour and a half, then have 2 minutes to turn on the charm.
I must admit i did get a thrill when he won trophies and i felt very proud, even though i was sure he was by far more deserving of 1st prize!
If you still want to do it and you might as well check you local paper or the monthly listing in the Brisbane Child or the ...child magazine for whatever state you live in.You and find them (the magazine)at most places mums go eg playcentres, child health.
I hope you let us know how you go if you decide to enter a comp.
