My daughter has her first pageant the end of august and i am really nervous. Has anyone had a child in a pageant at 1 and what did you do to keep them calm during outfit changes?

My daughter did her first pageant when she was 9 months....in a $15 flea market dress. Won. The best thing you can do is be calm. If you are nervous and upset, she will sense it and it will make her nervous and upset. Make pageant time play time.

Jeez guys don' tbe hard on the girl. It's a pageant...I was in pageants as a child and it did nothing to dampen my self-esteem. I doubt if it is as bad as the ones u see about on TV, but U don't really know the whole story, so u guys should really stop being so judgemental.

why would you want to have someone judge your one year old on how they look? do you not realize that placing these young girls in a pageant where they are judged souly on how they look is one of the main reasons teenaged girls develop eating dissorders and end up hating anything they find less then perfect about themselves.

that is the most horrible thing u could possibly do to your child she is so young. Don't let them grow up to fast.

I don't personally condone parading your child around like some prize cow at a fair, especially at that age.

There is actually a community for pageant moms :) I have a son, and don't do pageants and personally would never do one even if I had a girl. But I noticed there was a community. Good Luck!
