Q:  

I am looking for a number of US births in each month from January 1985 to December 1994. I have looked on NCHS's website and cannot find it. Can you help me?

A:  

There are two choices for you. The first is to use the annual Supplement of the Monthly Vital Statistics Report, Report of of Final Natality Statistics. Table 8 provides monthly-specific data. The volumes are on-line as pdfs:

I have created an electronic file for you with births x months x year.

In addition, you could produce this yourself using the natality detail files. We have the data as does ICPSR. Use "natality" in the search box:
