What to expect with a Scorpio baby
With Scorpio babies, the highs are out-of-this-world high but on the flip side, the lows are incredibly low. They’re sensitive and intense with a generous sprinkling of neediness, so pile on those extra cuddles.
Because of their ultra-sensitive emotional side, tantrums are the norm, as the fact they want to do things their own way. It doesn’t mean they’re acting out, on the contrary, it’s a reflection of the intense love they feel. They want you to always be honest with them, as it takes a while to gain their trust, but they will challenge you greatly.
Wise beyond their years, it’s sometimes hard for little Scorpios to play and let loose, but getting in and playing with them is a great help. Having said that, they appreciate having time to just be on their own.
One final note – Scorpio babies are bold and brave, but they do seek constant reassurance, so get ready to wrap them in your loving arms.
