Happy Birthday Leap Day Babies!

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

Five leap year babies, three girls and two boys, were born Monday at St. Cloud Hospital. Each of the five babies born on Feb. 29 got a special onesie provided by the Family Birthing Center. The onesies read "The odds of being born on Leap Day are 1 in 1,461."

The Leap Day onesies are a tradition in the Family Birthing Center. All babies born on holidays or other special days normally receive a small gift, like a gift basket, to mark the occasion.
