As spring approaches, I often think about babies and birth. That's crazy because in the spring there are relatively few babies born. Perhaps that association is because nature wakes up again and is, as it were, 'born' again, or... because our mini at primary school always has the Week of Spring Briebels (21 to 25 March) in March. Let that really just be sex education.
Anyhow, this post is about spring baby happiness because...there are so many great benefits to having a baby in the spring months!
Most babies are born in the fall
First things first. It could very well be that your due date is sometime in early fall because... when it's cold most babies are conceived. Fertility doctor Nicolette Vermeulen says about this in the RTL news: 'In the winter, when it is cold, there is more sex. There will be no more behind it'. Most people worldwide are born on September 16.
Not heavily pregnant in a heat wave
Help, pregnant, now what ? Do you find it exciting and are you afraid of all the pregnancy ailments that your environment is now bothering you with? Logical because it is exciting, but don't be fooled and remember that you are not heavily pregnant when it is high summer - when you have a spring baby. That means you don't have to sit in the blazing sun like a boiled egg with your big belly.
In any case, don't listen to all the well-intentioned advice around you. Nice is this countdown calendar from O'baby with a practical tip or a fun fact about your pregnancy every day. For example, do you notice that your child is calm at night and busier during the day? At week 28, your baby already has a real day-night rhythm due to the hormone melatonin. Very handy for when your baby is born soon. A super nice gift to give or receive. Available at Zilverdraakje - €13.50
Spring babies are happy
Research has shown that spring babies are generally much happier than other babies. It is even stated that the risk of depression is smaller in people born in spring. What a great idea that is!
Spring Babies Have Stronger Health
Research shows that babies conceived in the summer are less likely to be born prematurely. The weight is also higher than in babies conceived in a different season. These two benefits ensure stronger health.
Always a birthday in the spring sun
Not just between Sinterklaas and Christmas is very relaxed. That's one reason to be a happy baby. But how wonderful is it when the spring sun almost always shines when you blow out the candles on your cake?! A party in the garden among the spring flowers or... on the beach where no one has to sit in a circle. cozy!
