When is your LO no longer a baby?

Posted by   + Show Post
I've seen posts where people have argued "oh he's just a baby" when talking about a 4 year old. But then again I've seen people say "That's not a baby that's a toddler" referring to a 1 year old.

I know as moms our babies will always be our babies...

But what do you consider no longer a baby.

I consider over 2 not a baby anymore.  My youngest is 19 months old today, he's officially a toddler, but he's still my "baby".  I have an almost 3 1/2 yr old and almost 5 year old - and they are my babies, but I don't consider them a "baby" anymore.

I call my youngest the baby more out of habit than anything else...she'll be 3 next Monday. But is she actually a baby? No. She walks, talks, feeds herself, and understands what I'm telling her.

At one yes. After 2 no.


Quoting Ms.Pteranodon:

I get he is still YOUR baby, but would you consider him still a baby?




Quoting jadsmummy:

My 1 year old is still my baby.

Wait a second... What about 2 year olds?


Quoting Phoebe-81:

Technically, 0-1 is a baby, 1-3 is a toddler, and 3-5 is a preschooler.

They are no longer a baby when they can walk. My 19yo is still MY baby though :)

Technically speaking, nope. It's okay, my oldest is going to officially be an adult in about 10 months.


Quoting Ms.Pteranodon:

Wait so my oldest isn't a toddler anymore??



:'(
