If the baby is dead, that means the story is stuck with a newborn ghost baby character indefinitely, which seems clumsy and not very useful to the show going forward. A live baby will pose problems that can generate story (how are they going to feed him?) and he can grow into a toddler at least, and become a factor onscreen. A newborn baby may as well just be a prop.
So the real question then is: Can ghosts breastfeed?
