September Baby Fun Facts


September Baby Fun Facts

babies born in september,

Are you expecting a baby this September?  September is the month with the highest birthrate (I wonder if that could be related to the fact it’s around nine months after the festive season!) so it’s my busiest time of the year! Take a look at what my September will be filled with here.

I thought it was a great time to pull together some September baby fun facts.  Feel free to share them with any mums who are due this September:

September Birthstone

The birthstone for September is the sapphire, which symbolises purity and wisdom.  Sapphires are also thought to ease pain and reduce stress - perhaps you should take one into the delivery room with you!

September Star Sign

Your baby will either be a Virgo (August 24 - September) or a Libra (September 23 - October 23)

September Birth-flower

The birth flowers for September are the Aster and the Morning Glory.  Asters are symbols of love and Morning Glories are symbols of affection.

September Baby Fun Facts

Studies suggest that September babies excel at school - could this be related to the fact they’re the oldest in their school year.

September babies also excel in sports - again this could be related to the fact they’re the oldest, and therefore the strongest, in their school year.

September babies are statistically more likely to live to be 100 than babies born in other months!

Celebrities with September birthdays include Beyonce, will Smith, Keanu Reeves and Prince Harry.  

September National Days

These are the national days in September, not forgetting the back to school too, not listed as the date differs for all but don't forget your first day of school pic in front of the street door ;)
