So does that mean Scorpio babies are easy?
Considering they’re quiet and mysterious, often keeping to themselves, does that mean that Scorpio babies are easy?
This is the dream, right?
A baby who gently arrives earthside and sleeps a full eight hours immediately, only pausing to coo and smile.
No colic, no diaper rash, and most certainly no spit-up.
Is this what we can hope for from a Scorpio baby?
We hate to be a party pooper, but there are no guarantees for what makes an easy-going baby.
There are so many new things to learn about being outside of the belly, and those can be tricky regardless of what star sign your baby is born under.
The 4th trimester is real, folks.
It’s only as baby starts to come into their own and find their personality that you might be able to spot some of those traditional Scorpio traits.
But one thing is for sure.
With all these cool connections, there are tons of options for Scorpio baby names.
