I noticed many people recommended a 24-105 and I'm a bit surprised by it. For those that recommended it, could you please explain?

Nice shots... 24 and 15 aren't normally what spring to mind when people ask about baby portraits, but those shots work well
I'd go with the 85mm f/1.2, though I don't have the 1.2 (only the 1.8 ) so I don't know what the MFD's like (and whether you need the extension tube).
I've tried to use the 85 f/1.2 before and the minimum focus distance has been an issue. That's why I thought that an extension tube would be useful. I also figured that since a flash would not be preferred, a fast lens would be useful.

Thanks! For my tastes and style, the wider AOV and closer perspective that UWAs offer seems more fitting for infants and toddlers than does the more classic framing and perspective used with longer lenses.
I never even thought of using a wide angle lens, but I love the shots and will try using a wider angle.

Hey man. I like how you're being encouraging and all, but shouldn't you get your little one something easier to manage than an SLR? At a week old they don't have a lot of strength or coordination.
I'd recommend a g10 while they're developing their eye.
