WELCOME to the world! 

Say hello to the adorable babies in our picture gallery.

During lockdown, hundreds of parents across Southampton, Winchester, Eastleigh, the New Forest and Fareham were welcoming their babies into the world. 

And these bundles of joy are bringing a ray of hope during the pandemic.
While restrictions are now being eased, proud new parents have been unable to show off their babies to family and friends, so we are sharing them instead.

From rainbow babies to birthday special deliveries and from miracle babies to super quick arrivals, 108 lovely little ones appear in our special 12 page supplement, free with yesterday's (Thursday's) Daily Echo.

Look at all their fresh little faces in our web gallery above. 
From now on, we will be publishing your newborn babies in our New Arrivals section every Thursday in the Daily Echo and online.
