  • I always wondered that myself but I think they are a baby until they turn 2. Just my opinion. ( even when they are 18 they will still be your babies !! : )

  • It isnt about age. It is about development. If she is "toddling" which would be walking unsteady or trying to walk around then she is a toddler. You probably can start calling her that once she has taken her first steps. Toddler goes up to 3 or so I think. Around 3 or 4 kids become more graceful and balanced.
