Absolutely NOT.

I guess it depends on what you want to teach your child you value.  Yes, 10 months is very young, but what you do will have lasting effects, even simply in the stories shared and retold as the child grows older.

I've heard they can be "fun", but  I think that they muddle messages and instill in little girls the idea that their worth to others is in their appearance and how they "perform" for those judging them.  

I never even considered them for my daughter.

I dont personally see anything wrong with it, so long as you dont make pageants her entire life. Do it for fun if you want, but dont go all toddlers in tiaras lol
