Finally! What we’ve all been waiting for is here. Summertime! There is something so sweet about this season. It feels like a little reset on life. The sun calls our name, drawing us out under her healing rays and pumping us full of the vitamin D we may be lacking. Everyone’s internal clocks seem to slow, and time seems to follow. Though there is still plenty to be done — work, kids, home — summer still sneakily hangs the umbrella of leisure over us. Moms welcoming babies in June, you are kicking off the summer baby schedule! I’m sure you are relieved to meet your little angel and likely even more relieved to end your pregnancy before the brutal heat sets in! Here are some super fun facts about June babies.
Fun Facts About June Babies
Your June baby is entering a world full of sunshine and exploration. They may always live their life on vacation time! Experts in Europe say that when you are born can help determine your disposition and what effects time change can have on you, specifically mood disorders. Our kids born in the spring to summer months are likelier to possess a positive attitude!1 Check out some tips for positive parenting and how to match your child’s optimism!
Oh, June babies—our sweet little honeysuckles! A birth flower perfectly fit for these new summer darlings. The honeysuckle is sweet in nature, drawing hummingbirds in like a magnet.2 The birds grow and thrive with the help of these sugary blossoms. They’re beautiful in color and represent everlasting love. Although, we don’t need a flower to show us! One look at your new June baby, and you will know that eternal feeling.
June babies are also represented by the most classic of all flowers: the rose. A rose can come off as basic, but it is truly timeless. In addition, it represents love, which is the most overwhelming feeling you will have for your new arrival.
Like every Mom and baby is different, so is every rose and its meaning. Farmers Almanac says pink represents happiness, red for romance, and yellow for friendship.3 But perhaps the best rose to choose for your birth would be white! The white rose embodies new beginnings! Its petals are opening and blossoming like your newborn’s eyes and arms slowly begin to signify innocence and purity. The most beautiful symbolism for the journey you and your baby have been through together. What beautiful symbolism these birth flowers bring!
Nobel Prize Winner?

The Twins or The Crab
June babies fall under two zodiac signs. They will either be a Gemini or a Cancer. If born from the 1st of the month through the 20th, your early June baby will be a Gemini. Geminis are known symbolically as “the twins.” They can usually see both sides of a disagreement or point and use both halves of their personalities to fit into almost any situation! They are flexible but can also be indecisive. You may need strategies to help them choose activities.
If your baby is born from the 21st of the month and on, they will be a Cancer. The crab represents the Cancer. The crab is loyal, intuitive, and caring. However, they can be hypersensitive; knowing some signs of newborn overstimulation may help you learn and control some of their cues. Both signs are wonderful and capable of many great things!
Mother of Pearl
I think the pearl is such a special birthstone to have. This timeless stone represents June babies. The symbolism is beautiful because a fresh pearl is formed within a living creature and excavated from the shell – almost symbolic of a mother giving birth. Freshwater pearls are hard to find and rare, making them all the more desirable. A pearl never goes out of style. Your little June one is a classic!
The other birthstone for the sixth month of the year is Alexandrite. Alexandrite is known as the “color-changing gem.” Depending on the light you’re in, or the time of the day, you may see the stone as a cooler tone or a deep raspberry hue. Something changing like that can almost feel magical, but not as magical as the gift of new life!
I know at least one day of this month will become your absolute favorite holiday, but your little one could share their birth date with some other cool events and celebrations. For example, June represents Great Outdoors Month and LGBT+ Pride Month. So here is a look at what you can celebrate each day of the month!
