This is definitely funny! You might consider adding the captions to the pictures, or on the side of the pictures. Your jokes are hilarious though. And on second thought I guess if your captions remain at the poorbabies tumblr, then people have to link or reblog, as opposed to just copying your pictures and posting them elsewhere (without attribution, natch).

Thanks for the feedback, Cashman! At this point, we'll take all the notes we can get.

I'm a parent, and I think most of these pictures are adorable.

@DWRoelands -- That's the joy of the site. We get to make fun and enjoy cuteness at the same time.

I knew there would be the sleeping babies with their hands tucked under theirchins to prop them up. Nothing wrong with photos of lil sleeping newborns, but just let them sleep normally? Those are so weird.

This is positively inspirational.

I tweeted it, Facebooked it, and just multiple friends and relatives who don't do social media to have them run to their computers. (While typing this comment, my mother just called back, laughing so hard that I couldn't understand what she was saying.) I love this! Thank you!

I laughed so hard at some of those pics, but just to let you know, I can't access this page at work anymore. Your tagline in combination with "flesh tones" has made my work security proxy block it (at least that's what IT have guess what has happened and they don't want to add more to their exception list than they have to). A shame, I wanted to use the crushed pink bunny on the swing as an image in an internal email.

@like_neon: I shall update the tagline to something more innocuous posthaste. I don't want to keep everyone emails from containing the joys of miserable babies dressed like pink bunnies!
