Childbirth itself is the surprising magic of nature. Humans are still not able to find out all the little secrets about childbirth. Different babies born in different months weigh differently. Did you know this strange May baby fact?
Did you know facts #10 – My baby:
Babies born in May usually weigh on average 200 grams more than babies born in other months.
We are as surprised as you on hearing this strange fact. What kind of magic is this? What has a month got to do with the baby’s weight? Apparently, it is a general international fact that has been going rounds and has come true in the case of countries with winter in Feb- March period. The reason is that winter is the time when we eat more. Maybe a human hibernation time. Hence, due to low body temperature and high-calorie intake, babies born in May tend to gain weight as the last rimester of their mommy’s pregnancy falls during the winter.
This is the only sensible scientific explanation that we could relate to this fact. It doesn’t mean that the kids born in May would be obese. Just that kids would weigh a little more.
