A major Brisbane paper are after a family with a baby that was born 4 years ago in the last non leap year – so Feb 29 2008-2009-2010-2011 meaning that they haven’t had a real birthday since than.
The newspaper would want to have a chat to mum/dad and picture of baby tomorrow.
If you are interested, please post in this thread.
Need to be based in Brisbane.

Brisbane Newspaper wants family with baby born 29 Feb in last 3 years

Don't you mean 'a child born 4years ago in last leap year?' There wasn't a feb 29th in 2009, 2010, or 2011. Only a Feb 29 in 2008, and one now in 2012. This is the leap year. It corrects the extra quarter day in each year, so now leaps one whole day ahead to correct our inability to measure that extra quarter day we don't measure in the other years.
Sorry to correct a bubhub administrator, just my eagle eye and editor's brain at work, always at work....
Good luck finding the leap year bubba.

Perhaps they want a baby born midnight on Feb 28th / Mar 1st on one of those years. I dont know, that is what my brain came up with.

Sorry - I wrote that at the end of a long day. My post didn't make much sense, did it!!
What they are after is a baby born on 29 Feb last leap year - ie 2008 - so a baby who hasn't, in effect, had a birthday for the last 3 years.
Anyone out there???
