update a ball with sss applied renders well. Is it the baby?

You should check in your render stats of the babys mesh if "visible in refractions" is on. When you unwrapped the mesh in another software package and imported it as obj often these visibility settings (reflections and refractions) get turned off. Seems to be the case here aswell, since it cant be seen in the reflections too.

thanks! It was exactly that, didn't check it because I knew I didn't turn it off.
