From their artistic flair to their happy disposition, February babies are unique creatures in more ways than one. They’re likely to grow up to be famous, tall, and strong, but they may have trouble falling asleep.
Fewer babies are born in the shortest month of the year, and of course, there are those very special arrivals who are born on February 29. The odds of being born on that date during a leap year are just one in 1461 – so leap year babes are super rare.
February babes may also be healthier than tots born in other months, with less risk of certain diseases. Healthy, strong and functioning on little sleep, get set for a lifetime of being kept on your toes.
What science says about babies born in February
Artistic, smart with the possibility of becoming basketball professionals, summer babies born in the second month of the year aren’t just lucky, but also talented.
According to a Harvard study, little ones born in February tend to be taller and weigh more by the age of seven. FYI, Michael Jordan was a February baby, just saying.
February bubs also tend to have an artistic side that often translates into their occupation – think performing, painting, creating.
What astrology says
February babes are either Aquarians (January 21 – February 19) or Pisces (February 20 – March 20), making them intelligent, independent and kind.
Little Aquarians are super smart, with a fun quirky twist. Their creativity shines bright, as does their individuality. While a Pisces child is kind, compassionate, and cruisy; laid back with a sweet soul.
February Birthstone: Amethyst
February Flower: Violet – a symbol of modesty, faithfulness and virtue.
