March has a such great feeling about it, doesn’t it? Maybe it’s because we know Spring arrives this month. Maybe it’s the fun and festivities of St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe it’s because some of us take some time off to spend March or Spring break with the kiddos! Whatever it is, March has a great vibe. It even has some super random, but FUN, days to celebrate including National Goof Off Day, National Chip & Dip Day, National Puppy Day, and National Take a Walk in the Park Day. Sign me up for chips and dip!
If you’re expecting a new addition to the family this month, you have even more to celebrate! Those born in March are known for being happy little babies and they’re also eternal optimists. Pretty awesome, right? So, if you’re counting down the days until your little one arrives, or you already have a little March baby in the house, here are 6 things you need to know about March babies.
They’re night owls
According to one sleep study, those born in March, and other Spring and Summer months, tend to stay up later than those born in Winter. So, you might have some late nights with your little one and some bedtime struggles as they get older. But hey, you’ll always have a late-night movie buddy in those teenage years!
They’re share their birthday month with Bond, Jovi, Reba, and Shaq
The month of March has some serious celebrity birthdays! Those born in March share their month with 007 himself, Daniel Craig, as well as Jon Bon Jovi, Reba McEntire, Shaquille O’Neil, Justin Bieber, Ron Howard and his daughter Bryce, Dr. Seuss, Carrie Underwood, Chuck Norris, Michelangelo, Bruce Willis, Reese Witherspoon, and Lady Gaga.
They’re more likely to be a pilot
If you’re expecting a baby this month and like to travel, good news! According to a UK study, those born in March are more likely to become pilots. They also have greater odds of becoming a musician. That’s two awesome careers to choose from. Or hey, maybe they’ll do both! Think rock star with a private jet!
They could be a future CEO
If the whole rock star or pilot thing doesn’t work out, how does a CEO sound? Studies show that March is the most common birth month among CEO’s and business leaders.
They are either a fish or a ram
Those born in March fall under two very different star signs – Pisces or Aries. Pisces is a water sign and is symbolized by two fish. Pisces are commonly known for being emotional, compassionate, imaginative, and gracious. Those born later in the month fall under Aries – a fire sign symbolized by the ram. Aries are known to be courageous, determined, optimistic, and honest.
They are healthy
Think about some people you know that are born in March. Are they typically pretty healthy? A study by Columbia University concluded that those born during the month of March are not only at a decreased risk of respiratory, reproductive, cardiovascular, or neurological illnesses, but also a decreased risk of disease overall.
Clearly, there are plenty of awesome things about having a birthday in March. We don’t have any March birthdays in our house, but we’re definitely looking forward to the start of Spring. Oh, and we’re also looking forward to getting all this time change business out of our system. Does anyone else have a love-hate relationship with Daylight Savings Time?
