Assuming that you are on EP, your wife is on DP.
You need your child's DP to be approved before you arrive in Singapore, i.e. your wife should have the child's IPA letter with her along with child's passport to be able to enter Singapore. The IPA basically serves as the 'visa' to enter.

Hi do you know if it is possible to have visit pass first. The DP is on the process of application.

You may apply for a multiple-entry tourist visa for your baby and use it to enter SG, however i would really not recommend it as you would need to exit SG in 30days & re-enter - it is a hassle with a newborn. And what if your DP gets rejected meanwhile ? You won't be able to do visa runs with the newborn.

DP application processing does not take more than 2 weeks, so it is best that you wait for the DP to be approved and then enter with the IPA in hand, you'll be sure that your baby can stay here without any issues.
