Winter babies v Summer babies

Family planning on your mind? Well, here are some super interesting facts about having a winter or summer baby:

• Children born between June-October are likely to be slightly taller and have bigger bones than winter born babies. This is thought to be related to more Vitamin D in mums at 37 weeks of pregnancy during the lighter months.

• Babies born in summer are more likely to be short-sighted than children born in winter. This may be due to increased exposure to natural light during pregnancy and the first few months of life.

• Arranging birthday parties and potty training is definitely easier for parents of summer babies.

Spring-born children tend to enter deep sleep state later in the night than autumn-born children. One possible reason is that our internal body clocks may be affected by our exposure to sunlight at birth.

• Children born in the autumn/winter in the UK tend to perform better in primary school tests. This is not because they’re cleverer, it’s simply because children born in the summer are the youngest in their year group when school starts in September.
