For me absolutely nothing wrong with October
My son Hunter's birthday is October 30 its not hot anymore and still hasn't gotten to cold outdoors yet .We have his birthday party during the Halloween party at school plus its still nice enough out to go to the amusement park or zoo or have a cookout for his birthday if we choose. Infant Halloween costumes are adorable

Cons, summer heat and birthdays close to holidays.

Pros, You have semi warm weather to enjoy. 

My Tommy was born October 2nd.

I can only think of cons ATM.  You have a newborn during cold and flu season.  They start school almost a year later than they would if they were born 2 months prior (whether they're ready or not). It's the start of the holiday season.

You can have a holloween party for their birthday if its close to it. :)
