Ten of the best babies in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best babies in literature.

One entry on the list:
The Millstone by Margaret Drabble

Rosamund is a young, middle-class single mother in the 1960s. She risks her academic career to have her baby, and endures the indifference of her supposed friends. But the arrival of her daughter awakens a visceral love that reanimates her. When the baby becomes dangerously ill, the reader suffers almost as much as the narrator.
