little one will grow up to be generous, kind and a good judge of
character. Once they’ve got an opinion about someone though they don’t
tend to change their minds, so be prepared for some stubbornness.
Interestingly, February produces high numbers of babies who go on to
become artists, or traffic wardens – not exactly the most similar
careers in the world!
Your baby’s star sign: Pisces baby (20th Feb – 20th March) – see the next slide for Aries!
and sensitive (traffic warden material?!), your little one will be
sympathetic to others but can be quite secretive about their own
feelings, so they might need a little more coaxing to get them to open
up to you.
There’s a spike in births during the spring, particularly in March, and
this month seems to produce some really creative and talented people –
namely musicians, like Justin Bieber!
Athletes who competed in
the 2008 Olympics were far more likely to be born in the first 3 months
of the year than any other time of the year. A great month if you fancy
your little bundle of joy as the next Jess Ennis or Bradley Wiggins!
Your baby’s star sign: Aries baby (21 March – 20 April) – see the next slide for Taurus!
got a headstrong little one in the making there! Energetic and
adventurous, they’ll tire you out, but they make great little leaders.
April is the second highest month for producing CEOs and Managing Directors of companies, so if you think your little one is a bit of a bossy boots, you now know why!
Your baby’s star sign: Taurus baby (21 April – 21 May) – see the next slide for Gemini!
Patient, reliable and loving, Taureans are very determined, and if you insult them, they’ll never forget it (something to remember if your boss’s birthday is in April).
Sorry to all the dads who were dreaming of watching their little one transform into a sporting hero, as babies born in May have the lowest chance of captaining England at sport. But don’t hang up those tiny boots just yet, David Beckham is a May baby and seems to have defied those odds.
Babies born in this month also have a lower chance of developing many common diseases.
Your baby’s star sign: Gemini baby (22 May – 20 June) – see the next slide for Cancer!

Your baby’s star sign: Cancer baby (21 June – 22 July) – see the next slide for Leo!
A Cancerian baby is probably the most emotional of all the signs. Romantic and shy, they’re protective and joyful.
Summer babies are said to grow up with a positive outlook (must be all that British sunshine!), rather than winter babies who tend to be less positive.

Prince George was born on 22 July 2013, but we’re not sure his destiny lies in construction…
Your baby’s star sign: Leo baby (23 July – 22 August) – see the next slide for Virgo!
Just like a lion, your baby will be energetic, free and independent. Your little one will be confident and a great leader, but also a little attention seeking!
Sorry, but this isn’t the greatest month for baby births. Academically, August babies can often struggle as they’re the youngest in the class. And they can be almost a whole year behind the oldest child in their class, which does seem pretty unfair.
A higher than average amount of hairdressers are born in August – could come in handy when you next fancy a cut and blow dry from home!
Your baby’s star sign: Virgo baby (23 August – 22 September) – see the next slide for Libra!
Good news, although the school year might be against them, Virgos are highly intelligent. They love getting attention and adoration, but what parents don’t love showering their little ones with praise?
The clever month. Your little one will be born into the first month of
the academic year, meaning that they could be one of the oldest in the

lives than those born in spring.
Your baby’s star sign: Libra baby (23 September – 22 October) – see the next slide for Scorpio!
Your precious one will be extremely sociable and loving, just watch out for their possessive side over their friends and family.
Surely one of the best months in terms of your baby’s future prospects. It may seem a long way off, but a study found last year that October-born babies had an increased chance of getting a university place at Oxford or Cambridge – a whole 30% higher than July babies.
Your baby’s star sign: Scorpio baby (23 Oct – 22 Nov) – see the next slide for Sagittarius!
Watch out! Scorpios can be pretty ruthless when they want something, so just think of all those demands for milk you’re going to have over the first few months of their life. But they’re also very caring, intuitive and loyal.
Not meaning to worry you, but people born in November tend to be a little on the pessimistic side.
babies born in this month have a 50% less chance of developing asthma
than babies born in April, and typically autumn babies tend to live on
average 160 days longer than spring babies, so there’s something for you
to be optimistic about!
Hey, it’s not all bad news, Leonardo DiCaprio’s a November baby, and he’s not done too badly, right?
Your babies star sign: Sagittarius baby (23 November – 21 December) – see the next slide for Capricorn!
Fancy your little one as a brilliant dentist? All your dreams could come true if they arrive in December, although according to an American study, babies born in this month tend to have less educated mothers… we’ve discounted that, obviously.
Your baby’s star sign: Capricorn baby (22 December – 19 January) – see the next slide for Aquarius!
This determined little baby will grow up to be quite the perfectionist and may have a slightly shy side to them, but they’ll be forever faithful and affectionate to their friends and family.
