While having a birthday on or even near Christmas day is something that none of us mums want for our kids, often feeling they are going to miss out on a normal birthday, there is something so magical and special about giving birth during the festive season.


In fact, we have eight incredible reasons why having a Christmas baby is the best thing ever.


Everyone is in an extremely good mood

Have you ever noticed that everyone is in such a better mood during the month of December – feeling festive and with good cheer. What a great way time to bring a baby into the world.


Endless amount of food

The last thing you want after giving birth is to cook meals for yourself so, thankfully, Christmas is the season of gorgeous food that everyone will only be too happy to make for you. Think of all the leftover ham and turkey.


Family are home

Christmas is a time when family and friends living abroad come home. So if you do have your baby now they will all be there to welcome your little bundle to the world, instead of seeing them for the first time when they are one or two years old.


You are having your own little miracle  

Christmas Day is all about the birth of a baby, so having your own little miracle born that day makes it an extremely special time.


Baby’s first Christmas will be extra special

If they are born a few days before the big day, their very first Christmas is going to be extra special as they are still so new to the world.


Friends will be around

With most people being off work over the festive period you will be inundated with visitors and people asking if you want or need anything.


Your other half will be off

And best of all, your other half will be off to give you a hand rather than simply being off for a couple of days before heading back to work.


New year, new chapter

How many people can really say that this year they are starting off a whole new chapter, literally? Not many. But you will be entering next year with your baby and all the fun and excitement that they bring.
