Would you let your baby model? Why or why not? What about an older child?

No. I disagree with it at a young age. My cousin does this to her daughter, and her son was in one of the toilet paper commercials. I disagree because they can't live a young life, they're always dressing up, in big girl clothes and makeup. It makes them look way too old for their age. They need to have their age-time, and have fun.... Maybe in the later years, close to teenage years ... but 2yrs age to about 9-11 yrs? I think its too early.

I think it depends on what it's for and how much he'd be recognized. My friend has an Etsy store for items she crochets and I'm letting Sean be a hat model for her but it's not going to be a ton of photo taking and nobody will know his personal info.

@Belita: That's different. That's not doing it for personal gain of contests, and making them dress up when they're too young... that's just for her business So I agree with her business

It's still modeling, but I see your point, which is why I'm okay with it. I wouldn't do what you're talking about although I might consider it for a teenager if my child was desperately wanting it. I agree about wanting them to have a childhood.

DH would never let that happen! He doesn't even like too many pics of Madalyn on FB!

Depends on what it is for and how much time has to be put into it and who will be seeing the photos etc!

I agree my husband hates that I have photos on facebook of my kids so he propbably would not agree with it unless it is something that will pay for their college education

I would if it's form normal baby clothes and products, I don't see anything wrong with that. But when they're 5 and putting on all that makeup, heck no! I'm not a huge fan of modeling in general because of all the makeup, making them look older then they actually are, and the pressure to be thin. Babies on the other hand have no idea what's going on, they dont need to be rail thin, and if it's for a ad for johnson and johnson as an example that's okay with me.
