Ask anyone who has a child and they will tell you that parenthood is one of the best things that ever happened to them. They will also tell you that it is very frustrating as well. Once you have that little bundle of joy in your arms, you are sure to see how quickly life can throw you under the bus.
Most parents would probably not consider one month to be better than another for having a kid but scientists have found that something else is true.
It seems as if December is the best time to have a baby and there are multiple reasons why that is the case. Admittedly, most people who have a December birthday are going to tell you how much it stinks to share the birthday month with Christmas but what they aren’t telling you is how many other things they enjoy.
Numerous studies have shown why December is the best month for babies, including the following:
They sleep better
One study showed that December babies fell asleep faster and earlier than summer babies. In addition, they are statistically more likely to be a morning person as an adult.
They live longer
We all need a helping hand from time to time and if you want to give your baby the help they need to hit the century mark, have them in December and it will boost their odds.
They have healthier hearts
According to some studies, babies born between September and the end of the year are less likely to suffer from cardiac problems.
They are friendlier
One survey showed that December babies are less moody and suffer from less irritation. July babies seem to have the worst time with those issues
They are more likely to become dentists
This one is a little unusual but it is still worth noting. According to statistics, December babies have a greater chance of becoming a dentist.
They are typically smarter
Being born in December makes you the youngest person in the class. It also seems that they are smarter than the rest.
