What to expect with an Aquarius baby

When it comes to Aquarius babies, expect the unexpected. Little enigmas, these sweet souls are fast learners, with a kind, empathetic nature. But their stubborn nature means they’ll be plenty of times you’ll butt heads. Be prepared to stay on your toes!

At their core, Aquarius babies are highly emotional, so there’s usually a wave to ride. They’re cuddly and sweet and will be the first to lock you in an embrace just when you need it. They love everyone and are loved by everyone, being so wonderful has its upsides! But they do also march to the beat of their own drum.

Your little water babe is also super smart and will learn very quickly. Make sure you keep them busy learning new skills – both physical and mental.
