It’s a leap year! 366 days and one more day, February 29th. The phenomenon that occurs every four years brings a series of doubts in the minds of mothers who, during this period, are close to the end of pregnancy: “What if my baby is born on February 29?”, “How to celebrate birthdays? Let’s explain everything. It’s simpler than it sounds. ❤️
It’s in the law!
Many parents are thinking of changing their children’s date of birth to February 28th or March 1 in order to simplify things. It sounds practical, but it’s not possible!
The rule is clear! Babies born on this date must have the exact day on the birth certificate, which is made from the data of the Living Birth Certificate (DNV), issued by doctors or health professionals who accompanied the pregnancy.
The document is mandatory and official. Even if parents do not like the date, it cannot be changed, even involving fraud, and can be considered an ideological falsehood.
At that moment, it’s time to put aside superstitions and celebrate the birth of your little one!

Remember: no matter the date! Celebrate life, regardless of the leap year!
