In the entire world it's estimated that around 140 million babies are born every year.

Everyday there are around 385,000 babies born each and everyday.

Although that number of babies born each day can vary but on average 385,000 babies are born every day all over the world.

The UN estimates that around 385,000 babies are born each day around the world (140 million a year).

This number will remain relatively stable in the 50 years from 2020 to 2070.

From 2070 to 2100, the number will decline to around 356,000 (130 million a year).

While the standard image of the nuclear family with two parents and 2.5 children has persisted in the American imagination, the number of births in the U.S. has steadily been decreasing since 1990, with about 3.75 million babies born in 2019.

In 1990, this figure was 4.16 million.

Not as many people are having babies today so the birth rate is decreasing although there will always be new babies born to someone.

With a fertility rate of almost 7 children per woman, Niger is the country with the highest fertility rate in the world followed by Mali.

The total population of Niger is growing at a fast pace.

The population growth in Niger is amongst the top 10 highest in the world.

According to the CDC, February is the least common birth month.
