What this means for your April baby is that there are plenty of extra days at home during their birth month to plan birthday parties or just stay home and play with the new birthday toys they receive every year.
4. Positive possums
We already shared that babies born in March tend to be happy little characters but this is also the case for babies born in April (and May too). According to a 2014 Hungarian study, people born in April scored high on a hyperthymia scale, or general optimism. In times like this, the more positivity, the better!

Another common characteristic of April babies is their quick wit and charm. April babies are clever little things and sure to leave you laughing on a number of occasions. Expect plenty of cute questions, funny comments and cheeky comebacks when they get older.
7. Don’t worry, be happy
Prepare for your little one to be as levelheaded as they come, especially in the event of a stressful situation. Ahem. Coronavirus. April babies are cool customers and have a calming aura about them. It may have something to do with their eternal optimism, but whatever the case, their peaceful nature is refreshing and lovely to be around.
8. Energiser bunnies
April babies are active, social and always up for an adventure which means you’ll be spending a large chunk of your life chasing after them. Better buy a decent pair of trainers.
