A sweet April baby is an enigma, a little charmer who has a great sense of humour and loves conversation (watch out for that baby babble!) but is also stubborn.

According to APost, April bubs tend to be cool customers, able to stay calm in stressful situations. They’re also kind and sympathetic and eternal optimists. Confident and easy to get along with, an April baby is loyal, sensitive and always looks on the bright side of life.

Sharp as a tack, with a fantastic memory, April tots are generous, smart and love learning new things. If you ever need cheering up, you’ll be able to count on your little April bub to lift the mood with their humour and bubbly personality. Despite all of this, they can be a little secretive.

April tots are either an Aries (April 1st-19th) or a Taurus (April 20th-30th), a strong fire sign which explains a lot of their traits. Most Aries bubs are curious, energetic and ambitious and because of this can be restless. Bold and competitive babies and children, those born under an Aries sign will usually grow up to display these traits as they mature.
