OK, I'll make the obvious joke so the rest of you don't have to.

I love babies, but I couldn't eat a whole one.

In a similar ad, they showed 2 toddlers: https://www.weirduniverse.net/blog/comments/follies_of_the_madmen_485

Does that mean that one of the babies didn't make it?

One of those classic “what were they thinking?” ads. Whoever came up with it clearly knew nothing about either babies or cellophane.
