We have been featuring real Australian babies in our campaigns since 1939. In 2009, we launched Bonds Baby Search online and thousands of gorgeous babies from all over the country were entered.
This year, we're back, we're bigger than ever and we're searching for bubs for our 2011 Bonds Baby Campaign.
SIZE & AGE RESTRICTIONS
We're looking for little ones who are a size 2 or under and whose birthday is on or after the 2nd of April 2008.
When you upload your baby photo make sure:
It features your baby alone (no other people or babies)
It's of the baby you're entering into the competition
That it's your own baby or a baby under your guardianship
That your baby is wearing at least a nappy
There are two categories - 0-9 months and 10-36 months - and there will be five winners in each category.
The winners are determined in two ways:
Bonds' Choice (8 winners)
People's Choice (2 winners)

Our 10 winners (including the two people's choice winners) will be announced on Monday the 4th of April 2011.
