Ok, I have always wondered this.  Why do people describe their babies ages as being "_ months old?"  Like "My daughter is 15 months old or 19 months, or whatever."  Why not "She's a year and six months" or something like that?  Is that too complicated?

I think someone asked this star Still, I'd like to know as well. Like really? You should wrap that up after year or 18 months.

This seems like one of those unsolved mysteries that few know the answer to, but everyone does it.  LOL

I guess its done more so out of habit, doctors usually have milestones your child should be doing at certain months, rolling over, sitting up,  crawling, walking, etc. Buying diapers, clothes, and getting shots are done  by months also...So you just use to saying their age by month LOL tis all

As far as under age 3, people usually say this because if your child is 15 months, and he/she has yet to do this or that (developmentally), he/she may do so withing the next week or so.
 
 
Just like a 4 month old baby may very well not be able to start eating texturized foods, but a 18 week old may be ready...in smaller children, the weeks of development make HUGE differences, rather than simply each month. Therefore, people tend to use that all the time.

I thionk people do this because it's more accurate and when children are under 3-there are different things that they can do developmentaly so giving the exact months puts the child in their correct range.

So it's a way to measure how your child is developing, basically.  It's a little tricky, but it makes sense.

Thanks for explaining, because I was really starting to wonder.  Thumbs%20Up

babies grow from week to week until age three. a 14 month old baby and an 18 month old baby are at completely different development stages even if the difference is only 4 months. babies change quickly.
