Because Capricorns are old when they are young and young when they are old, your newborn might look "old" or rather solemn. Furthermore, this child might be serious and mature beyond her years. Parents of Capricorn children often dress them older than they are. Instead of snap jumpsuits, these babies are already wearing tiny jeans. It’s as if the world around them is saying, "Grow up!"
This sweet child is strong and stoic. She wants regularity and predictability. A schedule is comforting to a Capricorn baby. Because of the Capricorn’s independent nature, she might appear aloof. Don't let this fool you! This baby needs tons of affection and cuddling! Like Virgo, your Capricorn child wants to be useful and productive. This toddler wants to help you do anything, especially build things.
Be careful because Capricorns like to climb, so keep your eyes open! The minute this little baby can pull herself up, she will try to scale Mount Everest or your garage roof.
It's important to give special recognition and acknowledgment to your Capricorn child because she needs respect. In her own tiny way, this baby wants to be taken seriously.
Because Capricorn rules the knees, take care to protect the knees of this little child because they are subject to injury.
Building blocks and a chance to build forts with blankets will delight your Capricorn child, who might grow up one day to construct highrise buildings. The Capricorn mind is quick to grasp the laws of order and structure—both in organizations or bricks and mortar.
