They're both probably cute to women, however I'm never sure which one is cuter. I don't have a kid, thank god, or a baby sister/brother but I do have a dog (even though she's fully grown and not a puppy anymore). So what's cuter?

Both, really. But a guy interacting with an infant or small child catches my attention more. Because it can give me some possible idea of what he'd be like with future children, especially if the child is his. However, it would also give me pause to wonder about his relationship with the mother, particularly if the child is not yet a toddler. Like are they together still, and if not, what kind of baggage is involved?
My boyfriend has a four year old son, who I've not met yet. I didn't know he had a child until right before we started dating. He's trying for custody of his son, and was with him and the mother for the first three years of his life. He couldn't handle their relationship anymore, and left her about 6 months before we got together. She lives in another state and he hasn't been able to see his son since he left, about a year ago now, but he's doing everything he can in his position to support and stay in contact with him since then, and is working on custody. His relationship with his ex is horrible, and while I wish they lived closer so he could see his kid, I'm glad she's not around to cause problems, even though he wants nothing to do with her.
Things like THAT are things I have to think about when I'm considering a man with a child. Those are the things that would flash through my mind. In an ideal world, he'd have custody and a civil relationship with the mom, and she'd otherwise be completely out of the picture, no drama, no bulls.hit. But those aren't the cards he was dealt, and I'm along for the ride because I've committed myself, and am helping him with everything the best I know how. The baggage and turmoil suck, but hopefully the end result will be worth it, and I have no problem at all with him having a child in general. I can deal with that, I love children and I can/will take on a parental role when/if that time comes and he gets custody. I came to terms with that fairly early on.2
