Due to give birth in May, or already have a tot that was born in the fifth month? Hold onto your hats, you’re in for one rollercoaster of a ride! Stubborn, motivated and emotional you’ll have your hands full, but your heart will be even fuller.
We’re dipping into science, astrology and research to uncover what you need to know about the traits of babies born in May.
Why May babies are so unique
May babies are contrasting characters, they can be fierce and stubborn, but also shy and emotional.
According to APost your May baby is strong-willed and very motivated, super smart but also quick to anger. Their inner and outer beauty makes May babies a magnet for attention, so be prepared for strangers to stop you in the street and marvel in your gorgeous child.
They defend their opinions steadfastly, are shy towards the opposite sex and tend to be wistful dreamers. They are understanding, love to travel (so hitch up that pram and off you go!) and also have a strong sixth sense. Reading books to your May baby is a must – they adore literature and the arts to help fuel their imaginations, but also love sport. Hard-working, May babies will keep you on your toes in the best way possible.
What science says about May babies
According to Australian research, the month a baby is born may determine a baby’s personality and even how well they will do at school, depending on if they’re oldest or youngest in the class – well worth considering when it comes time to decide if your little one is ready to start school. Another study found that being born in May tends to be associated with a decreased risk of disease.
What astrology says about May babies
May babies are either Taurus (April 20-May 20) or Gemini (May 21-June 20), an earth or an air sign. Taurus tots tend to be stable, just like the earth, be conservative and loyal. Level-headed but fiery when pushed, Taurus babies will do well in school as they grow and also in the workforce. For little ones born under the Gemini sign, it’s go-go-go! Energetic and constantly craving new experiences, Gemini bubs are easily bored. Super clever, Gemini babies often learn to talk early, and people will be drawn to your highly engaging offspring.
