1. Canada is the only country that can account for birth records for almost four centuries (they started in 1621). It’s the first country to keep a systematic archive of such things, despite the fact that other countries have been established for much longer.
2. Pssh, the Duggars’ 19 kids looks like conservative family planning compared to Mrs. Fedor Vassilyev. This Russian lady gave birth to 69 children, which included 16 sets of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.
3. So far, the only baby ever born to a president-elect has been JFK Jr., who was born on November 25, 1960, while his dad waited to take office.
4. Speaking of presidents, the first baby to be born in the White House was James Madison Randolph. Nope, he wasn’t an heir of Madison – he was Thomas Jefferson’s grandson.
5. Twins don’t necessarily have to be born together. The longest time span between twin births started on November 11, 1995. One twin was born that day and the other was born 84 days later – February 2, 1996. That would be a great story to tell when you got older – no one would believe that you were a twin with a birthday in a totally different year than your counterpart!
6. On average, a baby needs changed once an hour for the first two months of its life (how often it needs changed and how often you end up changing it are probably two different things).
