    baby daughter!

    When I shook her, she managed to open her eyes, as if she were waking up looked at me, and smiled. She said, "You're here, my baby daughter!" Mom told me 1)she was fine.

    Does "baby daughter" mean "youngest daughter"?

    Re: baby daughter!

    Without further context, you can't infer that she has any older daughters.

    Nor any younger ones, strictly.

    Re: baby daughter!

    Parents frequently use "baby" as part of an endearment.

    Hi, baby girl! How are you today?
    I can't let him become homeless. He's my baby boy!

    It has nothing to do with age. It's just a way of saying that the person's child will always, to a certain extent, be seen as the parent's baby.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: baby daughter!

    The youngest child in a family is sometimes referred to as the baby, regardless of his or her age. However, we can't determine if that's the case in your example, due to the limited context.
