Well since we planned to have an April baby.. I love the month. I was born in April and we felt like baby would better handle the heat here at a few months old rather than a newborn. I didn't want to be huge and pregnant during the hot summer. Also didn't want to have a baby in the middle of flu season.

My other two were born in December, so they had to always be so bundled and had a cover on their carrier and blankets. Granted it was still very cold when we had Evy, we didn't need all of that stuff. It was nice to be able to put baby in the carrier and not have to completely cover her up and be able to walk with her and not be afraid of falling on the ice.

I had a March baby too. but having a baby around this time of year as great. Their birthday isn't close to any major holidays so it won't get all bundled into a holiday. The weather was chilly but beautiful and sunny. VERY LOW risk of going into labor and having to make it to the hospital in a blizzard or come home in a blizzard.

Pretty much to everyone. My birthday is in April, actually 4 days before A was born. It's nice that for his birthday it's possible to have nice weather. Also, because I was so swollen i'm glad I didn't have to endure the heat of summer being pregnant. It's pass cold and flu season and you don't have to worry about going out and about in the cold and snow with a newborn. You just have to keep them protected from the sun.

I'm actually NOT liking an April baby(that sounds wrong!!!)

I hated being so big in winter(Canadian Lol)

I hate he can't wear sunscreen and I'm paranoid about burns(very fair)

I hate he's still establishing his nursing routine and its so **** humid(past few days have been just about 40 with the humidity)

I for some reason always hated the month of April prior too.

Henry was a surprise. Since next kids are a few years off, we will be planning for fall or winter lol

I like that her birthdayis spaced out a bit from the other birthdays/holidays...the rest of us have Nov/Dec/Jan birthdays, mixed in with holiday season...very busy. I also liked the nicer weather, not being pregnant in summer, etc. We were aiming for March or April, so we were happy.

Well, I mean, I like him because he's mine. And I liked that I didn't really spend any of the summer months pregnant, but actually, I prefer winter babies. I don't tolerate the heat well at all, and neither does Xavier. I hate having to worry about sunscreen, and I can't put a blanket on him in his carrier because he's too hot.
