The diaper and stocking cap(which I assume are both white) exhibit a brownish-pink tint. After noticing this I can see the same tint in the baby's skin. You might want to try to neutralize that tint.

The tint doesn't bother me, however, for traditional portraits, typically you want the brightest thing to be the subject.. so the diaper in this case draws your eye as it is the brightest thing in the frame. So I'd tone that down a bit and try to enhance the face. JMHO. YMMV.

IMO, as far skin tone, this is much better.

Way too much blacks - it makes this image look dirty. This is especially important in newborn images, I think - you need to keep'em on the lighter side.

As skintones go - I would "fix" the feet of the kid as well - give it more of a skin color.

The blur around the kid is waaaay too obvious. at least make it gradual.

Oh, and in the first image the logo was big enough - you didn't need to make it bigger :D
