When I shoot a baby, I dont like to use flash (Im sure, from experience, that the flash doesnt harm anything, but it does panic mothers, grandmothers, etc).

If you do use a flash, BOUNCE IT! Dont aim it in the babys' face.. It'll make 'em cry.

This means I would want a camera that is exceedingly good in low light.

That means you need to start at the middle of the Nikon Lineup (D-90 and above) or near the top of the Pentax lineup (Kx, K7, K5).

The Nikons and the Pentax cameras are using Sony sensors, but the reviews and opinions say that both Pentax and Nikon are making better use of the sensors for high-ISO, low-light than Sony is (go figure).
