All About September Babies

September is the most popular birth month of the year, with more babies born in late September than at any other point of the year, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS)

If your baby was born on 26th September, they have the most common birthday in England and Wales.

Did you know that’s nearly nine months after Christmas Day? Babies born in September were likely to have been conceived in late December or early January.

September is traditionally the month children go back to school after the summer break in the UK. Therefore September-born children in the UK will be among the oldest in their class.

September babies are more likely to be successful athletes. 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.

Be prepared for your September baby to spend a lot of time in their bedroom rearranging furniture! September-born people are detail-orientated perfectionists, which means they will curate their decor and possessions and placing everything so that it’s just so, according to an Apartment Therapy study about what your birth month says about your home.

Your September-born baby shares their birth month with stars from the screen (Hugh Grant, Idris Elba) literature (Agatha Christie, Roald Dahl) as well as royalty (Prince Harry). Does this point to a future creative career for them?

There are two September birth flowers, morning glory and the aster.

The September birth stone is the sapphire.

When it comes to star signs, your September baby will be a Virgo or a Libra.
