Meet some of the babies who were welcomed into the world in 2020 - living through a series of coronavirus lockdowns and bringing joy to parents all over Suffolk. 

2020 was a difficult year for so many, but for some Suffolk families it was the year they welcomed a new arrival and it is a reason to celebrate. 

They were robbed of their chance to introduce their new babies to family, friends and neighbours last year, due to coronavirus restrictions, so now we are giving families the chance to share their babies with the world.

We ran a series of photos in our newspaper last week and here are more of the babies of 2020. These will be printed in the East Anglian Daily Times on Wednesday, January 6.
