Search to find Barnsley cutest baby

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Friday 10th August 2012

If you're wondering why this cheeky chappy is so excited,it's because it's time to find Barnsley's Baby of The Year.


That's right, it's time to start sending in photographs of your cute tots as they battle it out to be crowned winner.


Little Henry Morgan is thrilled with the competition's arrival.


Henry, who is 11 months old, was born ten weeks premature at Barnsley Hospital. He weighed just 3.3lbs, spent six and a half weeks in hospital and was fed half a millilitre of milk an hour through a tube.


He was due to be born on November 19 last year but made a speedy entry in to the world on September 14.


His mum Julie, 39, said: "He arrived at 30 weeks, which was unexpected and although he spent six weeks in hospital he was fine.


"I went back to work on the Monday and had to leave him at the hospital. Of course you worry but you have no choice. I went up to see him about three times a day."


Henry is now happy and healthy and enjoys attending nursery one day a week.


Julie added: "He's got a little baby walker, which he loves. He loves bath times and being in the water and splashing about. He also loves his food.


"He's a right little personality. He's quite cheeky but he's a good boy. We've had to move pictures away from the edges of tables and things because when you tell him 'no' he just looks at you and carries on touching."


For details of how you can enter your little angel into the Baby of the Year Competition, see this week's paper.
