Characteristics of babies born in September | Mum's Grapevine

The birds are chirping, the flowers blooming and there’s a hint of warmth in the air, spring is here and it heralds the most popular birth month – September. If your mini-me is due this month, or you have a sweet September babe already get ready for a whip-smart little creature who tends to be a night owl.

They are born leaders, with many ending up being the head of companies, and they’re also beautifully optimistic. Spring chicks are also creative beings with tendencies towards becoming pilots or musicians.

There’s never a dull moment with a spritely September baby around, so get ready for sweet times.

What science says about September babies

While spring is usually associated with the sneezes and sniffles of allergies, science says that it’s actually a great month to be born if you want to avoid allergies. A British study found that there’s an increased risk of allergies, hay fever, asthma and eczema in tots born in autumn, with babies born in spring at least risk. Breath easy little ones!

Other boffins have crunched the data to discover how birth dates impact future employment.  Turns out, your September-born bub is most likely to be a CEO. Science also says that spring babies are eternal optimists. They score high on the hyperthymia scale, which means they can often see an upside to every bad situation.

If you’re yet to have your baby, the news is that spring babies tend to be of average birth weight – the largest bubs are born in summer, the smallest in winter.

What about sleep? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but studies have shown that spring babies tend to fall asleep later than those born in the autumn and winter. So get ready for some late nights, mumma!

What astrology says about September babies

Australians most popular baby names 2018

September babes are either Virgos (August 23-September 22) or Libras (September 23 September –  October 23), both of which are kind and loving, but they do have their flaws as well!

Virgos, an earth sign, are nurturing with a strong desire to love and be loved – and they also have a great memory and are super reliable. They can also be very picky, so lookout for a little one with big ideas on what they do and don’t like. Librans are kind and charming, funny and creative and always think of others first. But they do also love to use that charm to get what they want – so look out for those adorable puppy dog eyes!
