The adjustment to parenthood is hard, what with the dirty diapers and sleepless nights - but it can be pretty funny, too. The top funny movies about babies feature quick-witted actors trying their best to bring a baby into the world and raise it successfully. This is a list of the funniest comedies about babies including everything from Look Who's Talking to Three Men and a Baby to Life As We Know It.

What films will you find on this list of the best baby comedy movies? The quip-filled indie Juno stars Ellen Page and Michael Cera as high-school age expectant parents. Raising Arizona is another hilarious movie about a baby, following hapless criminals as they kidnap an infant. A satanic twist makes Hell Baby equally horrifying and hilarious.
