Leos are a bit stubborn and dramatic, so you may deal with meltdowns and tantrums if you hurt their feelings or they don't get their way.

Virgo babies prefer routines, so try to keep your baby on a schedule for meals, naps, bathtime, etc. Since Virgo's sign rules the digestive system, you may find you have a great eater that loves to explore new foods, or you could have a picky eater that needs to be gradually introduced to new things. Your Virgo doesn't need a lot to be happy. Fancy toys are not important to your little one, simple bocks, toy cars, or dolls are all your baby Virgo needs to be entertained and happy. Little Virgos need lots of hugs, kisses, and praise because they are sensitive and like to know how much they please you.

So, don't be surprised if your little one tells you “that's not fair” when placed in a situation where they aren't getting their fair turn or fair share of something. Because Libras are peacemakers, they sometimes hide their feelings to make others happy. As your baby gets older make sure you communicate with your little Libra about what's going on inside.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21) (The Scorpion)
Scorpios are very intense, perceptive, and emotional. Your little one may have a calm temperament, but Scorpios keep a lot of their feelings inside their heads. Even though your little Scorpio is very emotional, you may not always know when your little one is upset. Scorpios usually get along well with others, but they like playing alone as much as they do with peers. They tend to have a good memory, so you may want to play matching games or reading first word books to them early. Little Scorpios also love music.

Capricorns like to be in charge but are responsible and patient. Capricorns are often leaders and like to succeed at whatever they do. Little Capricorns like to discover new things, but may want to do things all by themselves. If you are stacking blocks, let your little one build his or her tower as high as they can. They don't want you to help them with it; they'd prefer you watch and praise. Capricorns are also patient, so if they want something they are not likely to nag you. Instead they will wait patiently for what they want. They also like to work for things and like rewards, so try sticker charts or allowances as they get older.

You can expect your little Aquarius to be sociable. Aquarians like to have friends, and your little one's comedic sign may make him or her the class clown.
Pisces (February 19- March 20) (The Fish)
Pisces are sweet, sensitive, compassionate kids. They are very imaginative and like to dream up new ideas. They may be great at imaginary play or made up games. They are known for being a little bit lazy and are not the leader type, although they have no problem making friends. You may have to give them a little push when they get older to do homework, or keep on top of responsibilities. They would rather doodle and dream than focus on getting things done. However, their great imagination and creativity may make them excellent musicians, photographers, poets, or writers. Since they are a water sign, you can bet they will love playing in water. Bathtime may be their favorite time of the day.
