    I dunno, was this a tactical thing to get recognition? Or is the designer truly unbiased when it came to picking the model/ baby?

    Personally i think babies with DS are the cutest bubbies. I instantly smile and light up when i see their gorgeous little faces.

    I think she is gorgeous, and I think it's a nice way to normalise D/S kids too.

    Speaking as a Mum to an absolute stunner of a 3yo, who has Down syndrome, I think this is brilliant!

    Possibly was done strategically (let's show everyone how awesome we are by featuring a little one with Ds), but even if it was, I still think its great, because it another opportunity for people to see what our kids look like and if it gets people talking about Ds, that's a good thing too.

    And she is divine, isn't she? Almost as cute as my Supergirl.
