5 Reasons Why October Kids Are Special, According To Science

Besides astrology, statistics and science can also say a lot about someone based on the month of birth. It is October and that means that we are going to look at the character of an October child. Because they are certainly special!

Special children are born in October

Although the month of October is also associated with the arrival of Halloween, October kids are anything but scary. Whether you are expecting an October baby or already have one at home, these points show why children born in October are special:

  1. They are good at sports

Research shows that October kids are budding sports stars. A 2014 study looked at endurance and strength in school children. The children born in October were stronger than those born in other months. There is thought to be a link in vitamin D exposure.

Children born in October tend to have slightly larger bones and muscle mass, one researcher explained. They have more muscles and become active earlier.

  1. They are less likely to be born on the last day of the month

The last day in October is Halloween, but October babies are not born on that day as quickly, just like a February child is not born on Valentine’s Day very quickly. It seems there is something that prevents ‘spontaneous’ births on those days.

A Yale researcher suggests that subconscious mothers may not want their little one to share the birthday with another special day. Hmm, could it?

  1. October children are more likely to experience their 100th birthday

According to a 2011 study from the University of Chicago, people born in October have “a significantly higher chance of survival towards the age of 100 than those born in April, for example.” So start a pension savings fund for your little one as soon as possible ;-).

  1. They have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease

Another study found that October babies have high overall disease risks, but lower risks in terms of cardiovascular disease. Perhaps a healthy heart explains why so many grow up to be centenarians!

  1. They are in good mental health

Physically and mentally, a birth in October bodes well for the health of the future, statistically speaking.
