8 Reasons Fall Babies Are the Best

8 Reasons Fall Babies Are the Best

You suffered through the last few weeks of pregnancy in summer’s heat, and you’re finally on the verge of welcoming that bundle of joy (yay!). It’s also that time of year when crisp leaves, cooler temperatures, and yummy treats (including anything pumpkin or apple) are on the horizon. There’s not much that’s bad about fall, at least in our opinion. And if you’re a new mom—or one who’s about to give birth—this is the season to do it! Here’s everything that’s great about having a fall baby.

The Weather

We know how tough being pregnant in summer is…and although it’s probably felt like an eternity, you’re almost at the finish line (go you!). Now you get to really enjoy some comfortable temperatures—perfect for long autumn walks with your new arrival, collecting pretty leaves, and taking beautiful pictures to remember those first few months with baby. This is the season to be outside, and there’s nothing better for you (and baby!) than taking advantage of it.

The Names

If you want to get theme-y with your new arrival, there are some pretty cute fall names out there. We’re huge fans of Dahnlia, Hazel and Laurel for girls, and Clay and Hunter for boys. Whether you choose something classic—or something newer—there’s plenty of inspiration in September, October and November. Here’s a great list of 100  fall-themed baby names you’ll want to consider.

The Clothes

Let’s be honest—no one walks out of the hospital wearing their pre-baby jeans—it’s just not realistic! Lucky for you, October (and beyond) is a great time to cover up in some cozy leggings, sweaters, boots, and scarves, and get comfortable while you shed the baby weight. Here’s the great news: there are months (and months…and months!) to go before you need to think about squeezing into that bathing suit.

The Snuggles

There’s nothing better than snuggling up with baby under a cozy blanket (by the fire, maybe! Enjoying some football, possibly! Or even just sitting and enjoying the moment). So grab your favorite throw, and nuzzle into the couch. Take advantage of the cuddles now, because these little nuggets grow quickly (far faster than we’d like!).

The Holidays

Did anyone say Thanksgiving? Fall’s the perfect time to start looking forward to all the fun holidays that October ushers in. You’ll have plenty of time with family and friends, and lots of opportunity to introduce baby to everyone who’s special to you and your significant other. Bonus: if you were suffering from morning sickness last fall, this can be your year to enjoy all the festivities (and food!) autumn has to offer.

The Costumes

Speaking of holidays, there’s one that takes on new meaning once you’ve got a child—Halloween! If you’re expecting before October 31st, it’s great opportunity to have some costume fun with your little pumpkin (bonus: they aren’t very opinionated at this age!). Here are some adorable options that will have you loving Halloween in a whole new way.

The Photoshoots

If you’re planning a photoshoot with baby, there are so many adorable options for fall-themed pictures—involving everything from pumpkins to leaves. And if you’re at the tail end of your pregnancy this season, you can still take advantage of the fun. Here are some gorgeous fall maternity photos to inspire your creativity.
