All About October Babies

Will your October-born baby have world leadership potential? More U.S. presidents were born in October than any other month, including Jimmy Carter, Dwight Eisenhower, and Teddy Roosevelt.

October babies are more likely to be successful athletes, and successful in general. In his book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell’s research found that most high-achieving athletes were born between September and December. He suggested that this could be explained because children born between September and December are physically more advanced than the summer-born babies in their class.

October babies have not one but two birthstones, opal and tourmaline.

Your October baby will be a Libra or a Scorpio.

Your October baby may have a messy bedroom, according a to an Apartment Therapy survey on what your birth month says about your home. This is not because they don’t care to clean, but because they prefer to spend as much of their time socialising and playing as possible.

Children born in October are the most athletic, according to a 2015 study. This is likely due to the account of vitamin D the mother is exposed to over the summer while pregnant.

The October birth flowers are marigolds and cosmos, two blooms with beautiful autumnal colours.

Famous people born in October include Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and Bill Gates.

Halloween is October, so your October-born baby will always have an excuse to wear fancy dress!
