Sagittarius Baby and Child Horoscopes

What are the dates for a Sagittarius baby?

Sagittarius children are born during the four weeks of Sagittarius season, meaning they are typically born November 22–December 21. Conception dates for a Sagittarius baby are February 25-March 15.

What are Sagittarius kids like?

Get the stroller primed and ready. Baby Sagittarius is the zodiac’s traveler and will be ready to explore the world from day one. These smiley little clowns will delight in discovering new things. Keep your valuables out of reach and out of sight, or Sag will soon be chewing on them.

Independent and outgoing, this social sign thrives when surrounded by kids their age. Smothering them with affection or watching their every move will cause them to pull away from you. Give them their space but check in on them regularly. If you set them up in the sandbox or with sports equipment they’ll happily play for hours with their peers. They also love to learn, so give them plenty of books and educational toys. Don’t be surprised if your Sag talks early and uses big words that make your jaw drop. This sign is ruled by Jupiter.


How do you entertain a Sagittarius child?

Playtime tips

  • As the zodiac’s wild child, they like to be outside, playing in the dirt. Forget about the fussy outfits. Stick to wash-and-wear only. Send them to overnight camp as early as you can.
  • These free spirits hate being confined by rules. They’ll prefer freeform play but will benefit from learning the proper directions of a game and mastering them.
  • These animal lovers adore pets and stuffed animals, especially dogs and horses. Take them to a petting zoo and give books with animated animal characters.
  • Open-minded, they’ll get along with all types of kids and love learning the traditions of friends from different cultures.

How do you parent a Sagittarius child?

Parenting tips

  • Never, ever lie to them. Sagittarius is the sign of the truth-teller and will instantly lose trust and respect for you if you try to pull a fast one on them.
  • Let them know the rules and limits up front. This sign wants more, more, more and needs to learn how to take no for an answer sometimes.
  • Be consistent and keep the rules written down so that you can see them yourself. Sag babies are tricksters and may convince you that you promised them something that you never actually did.
  • Invite them to offer solutions to problems that come up. These little pleasers love to give advice, be acknowledged for their wisdom and are likely to come up with creative and brilliant solutions.
  • Don’t expect the Sagittarius child to sit still for too long or confine them in any way. This restless, impatient sign needs a constant change of scenery, even if that means having a computer with lots of different games on it. As infants, they may scream in the middle of the night to be let out of their cribs. Ultimately, they may need to cry themselves to sleep in order to break this demanding cycle.

What can I expect from a Sagittarius child?

How they deal with

Rules and authority

Respect is a two-way street for the Sagittarius child. If anything, this kid will befriend grownups, talking to them like peers. If an authority figure respects them enough to speak to them like a capable human being, Sagittarius can be a model child. If Sagittarius senses condescension, dishonesty or iron-fisted autocracy, they will revolt.

Feisty Sagittarius (a fire sign) is an independent spirit who doesn’t like to be fenced in. Rules weren’t necessarily made to be broken, but for Sagittarius, they are subject to interpretation—and should be looked at on a case-by-case basis. For example, if bedtime is 8:00 pm, Sagittarius will find a perfectly valid reason to extend it until 9:00, arguing a case so persuasively that most parents will cave. It’s hard to stay mad at this upbeat sign for long, if only because they’ll make a joke that cracks your stern demeanor. Oh, Sag!


All boundaries are negotiable to the Sagittarius child. “No” is just a two-letter word they have to hear a few times until they get to “yes.”

Separation and independence

Little Archers often take time to grow into their independent sides and can be downright shy when they’re little. However, once young Sagittarius gets a taste of freedom, watch out! There’s no reeling those apron strings back in after they’ve been clipped.

Younger siblings

Sagittarius may see younger siblings as a burden, especially if they feel saddled with the responsibility of looking after them. If the age difference is close enough, they can be perfect playmates and best friends. Otherwise, the Sagittarius child doesn’t want to be tied down.

Older siblings

Explorer Sagittarius always wants to be ten steps ahead, so an older sibling gives them a glimpse into the exciting world of Big People. Hello, mini tagalong.

Bye-bye, baby: Weaning, potty training

Sagittarius is in a hurry to be free but can hardly sit still. The motivation to be a “big kid” is there, but the self-discipline might not be. Sagittarius kids may lack the patience for pottying, so it could take a few extra tries before liftoff. Plus, once this sign gets busy playing, they often forget to use the bathroom…before it’s too late. Keep a change of clothes handy.


Curious Sagittarius is full of questions and might ask a few blushworthy ones. But this honest-to-a-fault sign won’t accept any lame stories about storks, so prepare to chat about the birds and bees pretty early.

Learning: School, homework and teachers

As hyperactive as Sagittarius can be, this kid loves to learn. Sagittarius rules the zodiac’s ninth house of higher learning and education and can be a gifted student. They especially love independent study projects and any chance to display their natural creativity.

Household conflict

Truth-teller Sagittarius isn’t one to sweep things under the rug. However, when this action-oriented sign senses trouble brewing, they may rush to fix it, either mediating or taking control of the situation by jumping into the fray. In a dysfunctional family dynamic, Sagittarius would be most likely to take on the “hero child” role. Little Archers can even get pushed aside if another sibling or family member is volatile or dominating and might even drift toward spending time at friends’ and relatives’ homes to avoid dramatic scenes.
