No, Donald Trump was not talking about himself.
During a rally in Virginia, a crying baby was distracting the mangled apricot hell-beast so he took care of the problem.

Hollywood Reporter: At first, the GOP presidential nominee told the parent not to worry about the baby. "I love babies," he added.
However, moments later, while the baby was still crying, Trump stopped his speech to ask the parent to leave.
"Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," Trump said. "I think she really believed me that I like a baby crying while I am speaking."
#Trump assured mum of crying baby he didn't mind. Then kicked her out; said "I think she thought I was serious when I said I didn't mind."

Donald Trump's whole candidacy, in a nutshell:
He didn't want to compete for attention with a crying baby.

I believe we will hear someone from his campaign, maybe Paul Manafort complain that the baby was a Clinton plant!
Note that one baby at a Colorado Spring rally was not too happy to be held by Trump:
That said, it's hardly fair to compare him to Clinton, is it?
Or the master of all baby holding, Barack Obama.
This sums it up:
Manafort: We need to soften your image by having you kiss a baby.
Trump: Roger that.
Your baby is a loser and I hate it.
