A lot has changed when it comes to the products that parents have to choose from for caring for their babies.

This week my son turned 6 years old, and so in honor of my May baby, who is no longer a baby really, I thought I’d share some fun facts about babies born in May. From fellow famous May babies, to birth month flowers, here’s some pretty interesting and cool facts about those born in May.

Here are fifteen darling little girl swimsuits:
