DID you start 2019 with a new arrival?

Proud parents have been sending us pictures of their babies born during January and February 2019 in East Lancashire.

Pictures will be featured in a special supplement at the end of the year to celebrate the borough's newest residents.

One of the first babies to arrive in 2019 was Scott John Nogales, from Rishton, who was born at 1.42pm on New Year's Day at Lancashire Women's and Newborn Centre, weighing 9lb 8oz.

You can see him pictured above, snug as a bug in his hospital cot. Scroll through the gallery to see the rest of January and February's adorable bundles of joy. 

To be included, send us a picture of your newborn along with their name, date of birth, weight at birth and the area you live using the form below.

If you are expecting a baby later in the year, look out for our appeals for each month of 2019.

Any photographs with missing information will not be included in the paper
