Why Babies Born in February are Special

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

February is a short month filled with many holidays, including Valentine’s Day. To many it may seem like the perfect month, short and sweet. However, if you have a baby born in February, it will be an even more special month. Science says that babies born in February are extra special for many reasons.

February Babies

Better Careers

Research done by Harvard shows that babies born in February were both taller and stronger than other babies by the age of seven. February babies also weighed more and were just overall bigger than those born in the other 11 months.

This exact study also showed that winter babies, including the month of February, also did much better on intelligence tests.

Taking into perspective all these factors, your baby could have a pretty significant job. Being taller and stronger could mean a higher chance of playing in the NBA. Doing much better on intelligence tests could mean your baby will eventually become a lawyer or even a doctor.

More Artsy and Creative

Along with being tall, smart, and strong, if your baby is either an Aquarius or Pisces, they will be more artistic and creative than other babies. As the astrology signs mention over and over again, those who are more creative and into art are typically an Aquarius or Pisces.

Being born in February is linked to being an artist. Which means, your baby could end up being famous! There are many many actors and actresses born in February, and even presidents as well!

Rare Birthday

We all know that every four years February has an extra day,  just like this year. That means, if you are due in February, your baby might be one of the very few born on February 29! It is the rarest birthday to have, as only around 200,000 people all around the country have that same birthday.

Even though you cannot actually celebrate their birthday each year on the exact date, it is still a very special birthday to have. If you have a child born on leap year, they are usually called, “leaplings.”

Some people will celebrate their birthday on March 1 or February 28, while a select few only celebrate every four years. It is something very few people can participate in, making them all the more special.

If you have a baby born in February or are due in February, be of good cheer! Your baby is destined to be wonderful and special. Science is showing that babies born in February are more special. No matter what, each and every baby is special and unique in their own way.
