They're often a scourge on the entertainment and relaxation of the childless - babies infiltrating flights, dinners out, or a night a theatre.
But what if you're the creator of those babies? Do parents have to miss out on cultural or social events because they have a kid in tow?
The debate rages over this, but a theatre show produced by and for parents decided to welcome other parents with a matinee performance that babies can attend.
The accessibility of the show, plus it's hilarious content, has been so popular comedy Femme Natale is coming back for a return season. Director Fingal Pollock tells us about the show. You can check out tickets here.
