Research shows that babies born in February have a distinct number of advantages over those birthed during the other 11 months of the year.
What day of the year you are born is entirely random. Granted, there are certain periods of the year during which more babies are born since they are roughly nine months after particular holidays, but what day you are born on has nothing to do with you. However, various research conducted around the world has highlighted multiple reasons why babies born in February may be in for a better life than those born throughout the rest of the year.
According to Motherly, there are six standout reasons why being born in February may benefit a baby. First up, a study conducted by Harvard University discovered that February babies tend to grow up to be taller and weigh more than other children. Is that the NBA we hear calling? Plus, an added note, Michael Jordan celebrates his birthday on February 17. Just saying.
Don't think your February baby is cut out to be an athlete? No problem. That very same study also discovered babies born in winter and spring tend to be smarter than those with birthdays in other seasons. Don't think your baby has the smarts either? How about a career in the arts? The UK's Office for National Statistics found out that February-born brits are the most likely to become artists.
But wait, there's more! Two star signs fall in February, Aquarius and Pisces. The Journal Of Social Sciences reported findings that a disproportionate of celebrities share the Aquarius star sign. Stars such as Shakira, Bob Marley, and Jennifer Aniston. Or, if you dream of your little one making a more substantial contribution to society, there are a lot of presidents who have had the Aquarius star sign too.
That's all good for one half of the month, but what about the other? Well, there's good news on that front too. A study by CareerBuilder.com discovered that adults with the Pisces star sign were the most satisfied with their jobs. Last but not least, there is the possibility that your February baby could be born on Leap Day, the rarest day of all. Not if you're expecting this year, of course, but there will be babies with Leap Day birthdays in 2020.
