All babies are different. Some are so quiet that you wonder if you birthed a literal angel while others scream bloody murder 24/7. Even siblings can have dispositions like night and day. But can you actually predict how chill your baby will be? If we use astrology, figuring out your baby’s temperament might be as simple as knowing your due date. Here are the three zodiac signs who are so chill you wonder if they’ll ever learn to cry (and one sign that needs a special regimen of vacuum cleaner ASMR and midnight road trips to keep pacified).
The 3 Zodiac Signs That Make for the Chillest Babies (& the One That Cries the Most)
The 3 Chillest Zodiac Babies
1. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Babyhood is arguably the highlight of a Taurus’ life. What else do you expect from a sign that’s all about creature comforts? Your Taurus baby is a grounded earth sign and ruled by Venus—the planet of love, connection and keeping the peace. Though a Taurus can also be stuck in her ways (even straight out of the womb), as long as her hectic schedule of feeding, napping and getting her butt wiped is luxuriously predictable, she won’t make much of a fuss. Your Taurus baby is also quite clingy and happy to spend all day cuddling without a care in the world (because, well, she’s a baby).
2. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians are known for being above all the drama, and from the moment you cut the umbilical cord, your Aquarius baby seems wise beyond his years. You’ve got a lot to learn from this little bundle of joy! Aquarius is a social air sign, ruled by Saturn—the planet of stillness, discipline and maturity. Very good at self-regulation naturally, this is the baby who is so quiet and observant that you’re constantly wondering what’s going through his head. Is it something deeper than contemplating his next big poop? Aquarians love people and learn through careful observations of their surroundings. Aquarius is also less excitable than fellow air signs—Libra and Gemini—mostly because they are nothing if not patient. Just remember that your Aquarius baby might be chill, he’s also keeping an eye on everything that you do. So model that human behavior responsibly!
3. Pisces (February 19 - March 19)
Some say that Pisces exist in a world of their own, and when it comes to being a chill baby, the dreamy fish might take the prize for chillest of them all. Pisces is an emotional water sign and is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of optimism. Like Aquarians, Pisces are wise beyond their years but tend to be more introverted. Your baby can usually entertain himself for hours, just staring at the ceiling from his crib, cooing and smiling. Pisces also rules the feet (yep, every sign has its own body part), so when you haven’t heard a peep from your kid in a while, you might check the baby monitor to discover that he’s not napping but blissed out in a happy baby pose.
The Sign That’s Probably Crying as We Speak
Gemini is the sign of the curious child at the party. And though your Gemini baby is always going to keep things interesting, we wouldn’t describe her as chill. As an extroverted air sign, Gemini is ruled by the communication planet, Mercury. It’s likely that your Gemini starts talking early and before she can even form words, she’ll be chatting up a storm. Your Gemini baby loves to be around people and is so easy when it comes to getting to know family members and behaving for babysitters. She’s exceedingly lovable and whip-smart, but she can also be quite temperamental when she’s over- or (especially) under-stimulated. When she’s had enough, she won’t be shy about giving you a piece of her mind. Luckily, it’s usually not hard to turn those tears into laughter! Getting her to sleep? That’s a different story.
