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 was just going to write this.  My kids are 14, 12, and 10 and I not only refer to them as my babies, but also call them baby (i.e. "How are you doing baby?").  As I told them, they will be 182 and still be my babies.

I will always refer to my kids as my babies, even when they are grown and gone LOL!

My friends dd walked at 7 months old no joke i saw her it was unreal, we kept saying your a baby sit down lol


Quoting mich.el.le:

If they walk and talk (even just a couple words) they aren't a baby, imo.  They're a young toddler.

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. 




Just gotta jump in with something completely pointless. I don't have "kids". I have children.
