So I have a question for all the women who have had winter babies. I've heard this from a reliable source years ago but can't remember who told me. Is it true or false, that infants who are born in the winter time are better off coming out in the cold weather when they're a month old? I heard that winter babies adapt to the winter weather because that's when they were born and they don't catch colds alot in the winter time. The same for summer and spring babies. Whatever season the baby is born in is the season that its' body is adapted to and will survive better. Can anyone confirm or reject this theory? Any proffessionals that can shed some light on this situation?View Thread
