When you say your baby is a month old...

Do you count by 4 weeks? or by the same number of day he/she was born the next month?

  • Both. It's really only a day or 2 difference depending on how many days in a month.

  • Every 23rd of every month my daughter turns another month older. That's how I do it. If I lose count, then I count by 4 weeks.

  • no. four weeks is not a full month unless your baby was born in february. mine was born 5 weeks ago and she's not 5 weeks she's one month

  • I usually do weeks until about 3 months... then it's every ___ of the month (16th for my younger son)... until 2, then it's 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4... I think we stopped saying half this year with my older son who is four. The half year doesn't matter nearly as much at this age.

  • Forgot to add that if you count every 4 weeks as a month you will end up with 13 months by the time your baby is a year.
