New parents are celebrating 'leapling' babies this Leap Day.

Babies born on February 29, or Leap Day, are known as "leapling" babies. At UnityPoint Health - Meriter, 'leapling' babies get frog hats to celebrate.

By early Saturday afternoon, UnityPoint Health - Meriter had seen six Leap Day babies.

Did you know babies born today are known as "leaplings"? To help our new babies celebrate their special birthday, all babies born today (leap day) get an adorable frog hat!
