While this is a very cute baby, the shot does not work for me. I think it is a photo that the parents will like, but most other eyes will pass it up. With that being said, I'd like to give you feedback on what would make other people attached to it.
First, the eyes are the first place viewers will go to for a connection with the subject. The eyes are dark and lifeless. This could have been helped with a flash or even an ambient light to create a catch light in the eyes. Second, she is looking out of the picture. There is no place for the viewer's eye to travel. If you would have put her on the left side the viewers could follow the gaze through the emptiness of the frame. As it is now, you could just crop everything behind the babies head because the viewer will not even look there.
Here is my blog talking about what the natural tendencies are of the eyes as they view a photo.
