Top 9 Reasons Having a Winter Baby is Awesome
Holiday Seasons are HAPPINESS wrapped in ribbons and smiles.
This study found that winter babies are larger than summer babies. This may sound scary, but a larger baby (generally) has less reason to visit the NICU!
The same study found that winter (and spring) middle to upper-class babies may actually be smarter than those born in the summer and fall. That’s right, researchers studied newborns and followed up at age 7, and something about being born in the winter linked the children to higher intelligence!
You have a reason to stay home. With winter-illnesses flying around, your newborn gives you the perfect reason to hibernate all season long.
Pregnancy makes you warm… warmer than warm – basically like a sauna. The cold air feels so great when sporting around the extra pounds.
One study says that winter-born babies are more well-behaved than summer babies. Far-fetched? Maybe, but science (sometimes) doesn't lie.
You get to EAT ALL OF THE FOOD. Those leftover cookies are yours because breastfeeding a baby creates serious cravings and requires a few extra calories.
Everyone will have to come to you this year for the holidays. You’ll pocket all the money you would have needed to spend traveling.
