would xmas baby be that bad?


Hi my lovely ladies

Well im so so so so so broody today, i was babysitting my little cousins baby today and its made me want a baby even more.

Its got me to think? could i try end of the month!

But that would mean our baby would be due around xmas...thats if we concieved on the first try so a bit far fetched.

My husband is against a xmas baby as he feels the baby has to share its birthday with the hype of xmas and he doesnt like the idea of that.

Am i being selfish and should just wait 2 more months??????/

xx

Apart from wanting more than just a 2 year gap between my lo and #2, this is one of the reasons why this month (march) is onw month i definitely wont be ttc as id hate the babys bday to be around that time as no-one can afford it and with the hype of xmas, i know it sounds horrible but cant be bothered with it as it means 2 presents in a short space of time. I have 5 birthdays in december, My sister-in-law 5th dec, my cousin the 9th dec, my nan 12th dec, my mum 19th and my best friend 28th dec, and i can tell you, i get really stressed out with getting their birthday pressents in plus the xmas stuff ontop. no, March i definitely a no no for me. xx

I don't think it's selfish, you want to have a baby and when you have one you'll love and cherish it. I'd prefer to not have a Christmas baby because we have a lot of birthdays from Sept onwards and it's a really expensive time of year and Christmas adds to it. Having said that we're currently NTNP because we just want to have a baby asap.

Then again, maybe we're selfish too

i really don't like the idea of a xmas baby. Didn't want my lo to be upstaged by xmas. But my hubby and I are ntnp, so there is always the chance of it happening to us.
I think it it happen to me i would make such a big deal of the lo's birthday, or make sure there was one room in the house which was decorated with birthday banners and nothing to do with xmas.

My dd is Dec 24th! She's only had 1 bday so far but it was fantastic! I thought everyone made a bit more of an effort, because they didn't want it to feel Xmassy for her! We did get a huge amount of toys, but her childcare is spread between her 2 sets of granparent, so the toys were too, obviously more at home!

On her birthday we had everyone come round to our house, and we had banners, cake, balloons - everything you would have at a birthday party. The fireplace was kept empty for her birthday cards. I have put some toys away to bring out during the year, so she gets regular new toys, and also will make a bigger deal out of Easter - buy her something for the garden or something. One thing I insisted on was no joint presents. If her bday was any other time she would get 2 presents, so just cos it's Xmas Eve it doesn't matter!

I said I didn;t want a Dec baby, but when you're TTc and it hasn't happened after a few months, when it comes to March you won't stop! I can pretty much guarantee that! March could be the month you will concieve! If you want a baby so bad, it shouldn't matter when they're born.

I forgot to add that we had her party with her little friends on Dec 29th. Because of the bad weather end of Nov, early Dec, we hadn't seen any of them for ages! Also all the mams made an effort to come to her party, as nothing is open over Xmas and New Year so they got a break too! Lol! I hired a community Centre, and they put loads of toys out, and we did a buffet - and it was the best party of the year in my opinion!

We're not trying next month because it would mean baby would be born (elective section) sometime around Boxing Day. I think before Xmas is fine, but after Xmas people don't want to party any more, don't have any money etc. My DH's birthday is 13th Jan and everyone always forgets (or ignores it).

my son was born 22nd december and his birthday was brilliant last year he still got as many presents as my other son would get (born in may) and it is 1 special christmas with a new baby to show everyone i loved it he got loads of attention when all the family came round christmas day. plus noone can say they forgot his birthday being 3 days before christmas how could you forget! lol the only down side to it i felt was that i already had a 19 month old and i was drained 3 days of waking up all through the night then having to run around like a loon on xmas day with a toddler hard work! lol but worth it!

I don't think I'd like to have a baby on Christmas day or the few days surrounding it but think it'd work out ok just being in dec I love the lead up to Christmas anyway so that would add to the excitement. I do like having Los birthday in jan though too as we we got all her presents in the half price sale

Hi, I am new here but I just wanted to share that my sons b-day is Christmas day. He is 9 now and he thinks he is SUPER lucky to be born on that day. I think it is all in the way you handle it, you have to make it special for them. Yes, other people tend to make it a negative thing by combining gifts or forgetting him altogether but I think it is how we as parents treat it. We have always told him that he has a special b-day and we treat it as such so I guess that is why he thinks like he does. He always says "Because of me we get to eat b-day cake on Christmas!"
BUT I can also see why some would choose to wait since it such a busy time of year already. I hope that helps.
