Later, Baby makes Tim suck a special pacifier that allows them to see Baby Corp, where babies come from. Most babies go to families, but those unresponsive to tickling are sent to management, where they are given a special baby formula that allows them to think and behave as adults while remaining young forever. Baby also explains he's on a special mission to discover why the world's love of babies is being threatened lately by love of puppies, and came to the Templetons as Tim's parents work for Puppy Co.

Yet on a worldwide scale, we find that hierarchies and decision-making methods are not always correlated.

Even though the story here actually tries to image a baby wearing a suit all the time, who prefers talking with platitudes of bossiness, and who is on an evident mission to stop an evil mind from creating a perfect ceaseless cuteness machine in the form of the most adorable pup, the obvious metaphor is hard not to notice.
