I am super excited to share that my Brother and his adorable Wife are having their first baby at the end of this month. We can’t wait – look out for their blog of their ‘Covid Secure’ family baby shower we held recently. We had such good fun and it seems they loved their Luxury Baby Box and all the other adorable gifts they received.
Did you know September 26th is the most popular day of the year to give birth???? Let us tell you why….
There Is one day each year when the most babies are born? On average, hundreds of babies are born each minute, that’s a fact…but
According to data analysed from the UK government’s live births database, that day is actually set to fall later this week, on 26th September.
This Saturday is the most popular day of the year to have a baby, with around 2,000 births expected to take place in the UK this week and it’s all thanks to couples ‘enjoying themselves’ over the Christmas and New Year period – with January 2 thought to be the most popular time to concieve!
Yes apparently the holiday season really gets people in the mood, with the ninth month of the year proving the busiest for new births.
In comparison the least number of babies are born on the 25th and 26th of December – presumably because parents are two busy making new ones!!
Seriously though, the Office for National Statistics thinks there’s a much more practical explanation for the number of babies born in September…
They suggest that it’s all to do with school and parents hoping that their little ones will be the eldest in their year.
