Reducing the overexposure at the top left might enhance the subject.

I'm sorry but I couldn't go above 4 on this. The background is so distracting and clashes with the cute baby so much....It kinda looks like a baby was plopped down on a kitchen table cloth and a snapshot was taken. Sorry for the harsh comment but I wanted you to know why I voted 4. In my opinion the baby doesn't engage the viewer because she is looking up and away from the camera. Also the tight crop doesn't work for me. I think it would have helped greatly to have the baby more upright and with a more muted background. One other thing, the upper corners are distracting because the backdrop wasn't big enough.

Beautiful baby. The top corner and the cloth behind the baby really detract from the photo. The foucs could have been a bit sharper.

The window/ sun light is really harsh, somewhere a bit more shaded would have given maybe a better balance to the lighting. Also taking a bit more care with the composition could have kept that background entirely seamless and cleaned up the top right/left corners. Maybe even getting a bit closer in to capture just the face/ arms would further simplify the shot.
