Cheated on this one. Took nose mouth and moms head and neck from other images. Hop that’s OK.
I started with the nose. First brought it in from the other image then resized and placed it. Color was way off, so I used a color balance layer to get as close as I could. On a separate layer I used stamp and patch tools to blend it in. I repeated the process with the mouth. The next step was to remove all of the reflections with the stamp tool. Rather than attack the whole image I cropped a bit of the mom from the right, and completely removed her head. Then I copied a selection of hair from the left side of the baby’s head, flipped it and placed it on the right. I used the stamp tool a bit so they aren’t completely identical. I realize the hair tuft on the top of the head is a bit muddy, but I’m not too worried about it.
Next I created a layer mask for the background and used a gaussian blur to soften it up. Then came the mothers’ head and neck. What a pain trying to match images!!! I resized it, masked it, and placed it. I then cleaned up the babies chin. Still a little messy. Finally used adjusted the levels.

Kid still looks a bit spooky, but kind of cute.

Hope you like.
