We love our Adorable Babies feature, but I can’t ever imagine taking the idea of adorable babies so far as to sign a seven-month-old up for modeling classes!
According to this article from The Boston Globe, hundreds of parents eagerly sign their little cuties up to appear in ads for everything from clothing to toys, bath products and accessories each year. The parents in the story say they are eager to save money for their kids’ college funds, and to commemorate how cute they were. Some even say they can tell their baby “loves the attention.”
Do you think the parents of baby models are just having fun with their little ones, or is there something exploitative about baby modeling? Would you ever passionately pursue a modeling career for your little one? You tell us!
