THE Kouga Express is looking for a gorgeous baby to grace the front page of the last edition of the year – which will be published on Thursday, December 21.

The annual Kouga Express Christmas Baby Competition is aimed at making the day even more special for Kouga and Koukamma babies who are celebrating their first Christmas.

Apart from being our cover model, the winning baby will be showered with great prizes.

The winning baby will receive a photoshoot and images on a disk from Beautique Photography at Fountains Mall in Jeffreys Bay.

This is not all.

The winner will receive a R500 Fountains Mall voucher, as well as a one-hour parenting class from the Baby Lounge in Jeffreys Bay valued at R300. The parenting class consists of an answer and question session, milestone evaluation and practical suggestions for the healthy development of a baby.

The Baby Lounge is owned by Sr Leisle van Vliet, a registered nurse and midwife.

The winner will also receive a set of two Babe-Eeze teething necklaces valued at R250, and a Babe-Eeze teething bib valued at R149.

The runner-up will receive a R300 Fountains Mall voucher, while the second runner-up will crawl away with a R200 Fountains Mall voucher.

Parents must enter their babies via our social media platforms. There are three platforms from which to choose.
