Grad filters in Lightroom can easily blur the foreground and back ground a bit, but those shtos could be good pretty easily with a fast prime. my 50mm/f1.2 can get much shallower DOFs than that

This is quite true. Also, you can vary your distance to the subject. A lens like the DA 35 limited can focus fairly closely and give quite narrow depth of field if you want that effect. Obviously there are a lot of longer lenses that can give narrow depth of field, although you have to get back in order to get the whole baby in the photo.
won't distortion come into play if you get too close?

Many of those shots are sleeping babies - prime material for the Brenizer method (stitched panoramas that can achieve effects normally limited to medium format or large format). It's fairly easy if you've got a stationary subject; I find it easier than trying to "shop in" the bokeh...

EDIT: LOL.. Yeah, I read the title, but in flipping back and forth from the comments to the pictures, I forgot; what I started to say is that stitching is easier than it seems with some of the software out there....

It can, but a full length baby with a 35 on APS-c shouldn't bet too distorted.

Not too bad, even if you are pretty close. The biggest thing is that a 35mm lens isn't a wide angle on APS-C.
