  • Foster parents have CPS Manuals that define an "infant" as 0-18 months, at 18-36 months they are "toddlers" and at 36 months (3 y/o) they are a "child".

  • A toddler is one who is either walking or over 12 months. At 3 years, they are now considered "preschoolers" (which I disagree with, but...times have changed) and at 5 they are "school aged child".

  • I think a toddler is a child older than 18 months. I have a hard time thinking of my 16 month old as anything but a "baby".

  • I thought it was at age 2, then someone told me it was at age 3. And now at the stores I see size 4t. So i guess it's 4.

  • Clothes size doesn't have anything to do with it.

    My 2 year old is in a 4T.
