Still time to enter competition
HUNDREDS of proud parents have queued up for the chance for their beautiful babies and cute toddlers to pose for a Post competition.
The Baby and Toddler of the Year competition opened on Tuesday with more than 300 babies being professionally photographed at the Galleries in the first three days to be in with a chance of winning the coveted title.
But there is still time for parents to put their youngsters forwards for the competition.
Photographers will be in the shopping centre from 10am-4.30pm Monday - Saturday and 11am - 4pm on Sundays until September 16.

Pictures of all the babies will then feature in a supplement in the Post on Tuesday, October 23, before people across the city can vote for the most beautiful baby until Tuesday, November 8.
There are three different age groups: up to nine months, ten to 18 months and 19 to 36 months.
The overall winner will receive £1,500 while the winning babies and toddlers in each category will receive £500.
Bristol News and Media promotions and events manager Mike Coe said: "We have got off to our best start to the competition in many years with parents queuing to enter their children.
"This year we have increased the total prize money on offer to £3,000 which has given the competition an extra edge and of course every child that enters will get their face in the paper in a special supplement.
"For those parents that want to keep the photos we have also reduced the full photo package price from £80 last year to only £55 which is perfect for people thinking about early Christmas presents."
A Baby and Toddler of the Year Facebook page has been set up to keep readers up to date with prize draws being added to the page throughout the competition.
