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.

On baby websites it says that your child is considered a toddler after they turn 1.

My 21.5 month old ceased to be a baby the day she graduated into 2T pjs. Her new sister also kind of bumped her from her position lol

When they start toddling around I think is when toddlerhood starts.

A year. 0-1 is a baby, 1-3 is a toddler, 4-10 is a young child, 11-12 is a preteen, 13-19 is a teenager.

2 year olds are toddlers. I worded that wrong. Up to a child's 1st birthday, they're an infant. Up to his/her 3rd birthday, they're a toddler.


Quoting Ms.Pteranodon:

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.

I will always call them my baby but I would say around 1.

my kids will always be my babies.. lol. 

But after 2, is when I feel they are more toddlers instead of babies.. at 4 they are kids.

I think when a child can verbally express themselves AND comprehend verbal direction, they have graduated from a baby. A disability, delay, or other issues will always exist, though. But that is a different issue than full ability to comprehend/communicate

Age wise, IMO, this is three.
