The Two Main Things A Newborn Needs, Based On Their Sign

Women who are expecting babies tend to do a lot of research about pregnancy and baby care...but what about astrology? Expectant moms know their due dates, which means that they have pretty good ideas of which Astro signs their babies will be. Sometimes, though, there can be surprises.

Learning about the traits of each of the twelve Sun Signs is fun, especially as they relate to newborns. This list is meant to be a lighthearted break from reading about the serious aspects of preparing for a new arrival, such as how often newborns should be fed and how they should be bathed.

While the list is lighthearted, it's full of information about each Sun Sign. Moms-to-be may use this info to get the inside scoop on the personalities of their brand-new babies. Newborns come equipped with so many innate traits and characteristics. When a Mom nurtures her newborn as best she can, she'll bring out her baby's good side.

Moms are powerful people (so are Dads, of course). They have the power to give their babies joy, security, and comfort, right from day one. With astrology in the mix, it's possible to give newborns exactly what they need.

24 Aries Newborns Need To Be Number One


Aries like to lead. While a newborn won't be leading anyone, wait awhile and you'll find that your little baby becomes a headstrong pioneer who blazes trails like nobody's business.

When it comes to you, your newborn Aries is going to want to be the most important person in your life. Aries loves to be numero uno. When you spend quiet time bonding with your Aries baby, he or she will feel important.

This is a sign that desperately wants to be liked. However, Aries can be brash and this sometimes causes problems. Be gentle to your baby to bring out the gentleness in your newborn's personality. Source: Astrology.com

23 Aries Babies Need Room to Move Around


Some newborns may do well with swaddling that restricts their movements, but an Aries newborn might really dislike the feeling of being unable to move freely. Aries is an athletic sign. This Sun Sign thrives on physical activity. Active and dynamic Aries newborns will be testing the boundaries of their cribs and playpens as soon as they are able to.

To please your newborn, let the baby wiggle his or her arms and legs as much as possible. Ensure there are safe spaces for the baby to explore through physical movement. Source: Cafeastrology.com
