How do you measure a baby's age?

With numbers, dummy.

Gyah, that's not what I mean. I mean, do you use weeks or months? And how long do you count by weeks or months before you start saying, "Oh, she's two years old." (I know a gal that has a 3- year old and she still measures by months...her "39-month old daughter loves daycare.") Anyways. Because, when you're pregnant, you count by weeks or you give a general estimate in months to random strangers. And with newborns, I guess most people count with weeks. But when do you stop doing that? And it a new month when they reach another 4 weeks or do you measure a new month when it gets to that month's day on which the baby was born? Does that make any sense?

For example, this coming Wednesday, the girls will be 16 weeks. Does that mean on Wednesday, they will be 4 months old or do I wait until April 30 (they were born on December 30) to count them as 4 months old?

There's no reason I'm asking this information, just curious. Because it's annoying me and I want to know. Thanks, buddies!

Have a marvelous weekend! Marvelous. " 'Cause I'm the magnificent, marvelous, mad Madam Mim!" What's that from? NO GOOGLING!


  1. There are 4.3 weeks in a month- not 4 (there's 52 weeks in a year, not 48). Your kids won't be 4 months until the 30th.

  2. This is the most boring blog post ever. I'm a 356 month old man, I have better things to do.

    Disney's The Sword in the Stone.


  3. I thought the same things!! Hahaha. I stopped using months when I lost track. After like 14, it all started running together and I started using months. And I count the months on the 30th of each month - when he was born.

  4. I meant.... I stopped using WEEKS when I lost track. Not months.

  5. It'd be funnier if you measured their age in minutes. "They're 10,368,000 seconds old. Oh, now they're 10,368,001 seconds old! They're just growing up right in front of my eyes!"

  6. Also, I don't know who posted that Anonymous comment up there, but he/she had to know that he/she sounded like a know-it-all brat, or else he/she would have put their name. Retarded.

  7. I like Merlin's stylin Bermuda shorts in that movie. You know it's based on a book, right? By TH WHite. The book is even more hilarious than the movie. I swear.

    When my kids are 1,000 days old, I throw them a millineum party. I figure they missed out.

    Seriously, though, who can keep track? Do I have a 15 month old? What day is it? Years. Years are simpler.


I like your comments.
Mom, keep it clean.
Have a fabtastic day!
