Godnatt söta baby

Goodnight = "Godnatt" in Swedish.

If "sweet baby" refers to an infant, I would say: "söta baby". We use the word "baby" in Swedish too, but a more Swedish expression would be: bäbis or: bebis, instead of baby.

Other suggestions: Godnatt vacka (beautiful) or; kära (dear) baby.

neutral  Mats Wiman: at least 'vackra'. 'Baby' is doubtful

Gonatt älskade unge!

if you're the child's parent
'unge' = kid

for others (and the parent):
Gonatt kära barn! (dear)
Gonatt söta barn! (pretty)

'Sweet' does not really mean 'söt' when talking about a person, but rather 'dear' (kär), 'beloved' (älskade)
