Your Virgo baby has a fine, discriminating mind and keen powers of observation. Talk to her like an adult because she will develop excellent verbal skills. Many Virgos are wonderful mimics and imitate accents to entertain others.
They have a natural ability to critique things. Virgos grow up to be literary critics, theatre critics and so on. However, this same quality makes them critical of others and, most especially, self-critical! Therefore, do not criticize this child because she is already doing this job all by herself.
Because the sign of Virgo rules the intestines, your Virgo baby will have digestive problems if upset. Make eating a pleasant, quiet experience. Never force this child to finish her plate or eat what she doesn't want to eat.
This baby benefits from order and regularity. (Though, if your Virgo baby is Aquarius rising, forget the schedule!)
Since Virgo is the sign of service, as your baby grows, she will delight in feeling useful. This child wants to help with chores, especially cleaning and restoring order, like putting things back in a box. (Virgos like to feel organized, although they are not always successful at this.)
It is wise to protect your Virgo child from the news of the world or family problems because Virgos are worriers. This child needs to be reassured where people are when they are absent. ("No worries!")
