Old souls with a love of family and cuddles, Capricorn babies are a delight. But don’t be fooled by these baby goats, they’re not kidding around! Born between December 22 – January 19, they love nothing more than routine and rules, so you’ll want to choose Capricorn name that fits the bill.
What to expect with a Capricorn baby
Born under an earth element, and with their feet firmly on the ground, young Capricorns are all about structure and stability. Set the rules early and your serious little goat will thrive and reward you with good behaviour.
Capricorn babies love a challenge and are great decision-makers. But they are purposeful, rather than impulsive, so give them the room and time to make up their minds. And while they love people, they do mostly enjoy playing on their own.
Ambitious young beings, Capricorn kids strive to succeed and are willing to put in the hard work to make sure they achieve their goals. They’re curious creatures who like to know how everything works, so playtime is all about discovery.
