How to use icon in form

I am creating a form and I could not get the html date input to work correctly so I was going to use a calendar icon and use the ngcordova date picker. For some reason my calendar icon will not show up like this.

  <ion-label>Date of Birth</ion-label>
  <ion-icon name="calendar"></ion-icon>
  <!--<ion-input type="date" [(ngModel)]="pet.dateOfBirth"></ion-input>-->

Hmm, would you be able to open an issue for this? I’m seeing the same thing, but I’m not sure if this the intended behavior
