Default Travelling back to UK with newborn

My partner and I are British citizens that have been living in Canada for the past 5 years. We need to travel back to the UK with our newborn who is a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport. We are in the process of applying for her UK passport but it hasn't arrived yet.

If we are visiting temporarily do we need a visitor visa for her? If we move back permanently do we need to wait until she has her UK passport before travelling back?

No she does not need a visa. Our granddaughter has been to the UK and she doesn’t have a UK PP yet.

No, and No. ... Though it would be preferable if moving back permanently, that she entered on a British passport, but it isn't strictly necessary and wouldn't create insurmountable problems.

Thanks. What problems does entering on a Canadian passport present if moving back permanently?

Like I said, nothing major, it just means some extra paperwork - such as registering with the NHS as she "doesn't exist" as a British citizen, either through registered birth or issued passport.
