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.

our pedi describes kids between 1 and 3 as toddlers.

Oh, i remember this argument!

Goats have kids.

People have children. 

Quoting jessi2girls:

okay.... and "kids" is offensive why???

Quoting hollydaze1974:

Quoting jessi2girls:

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.

I stopped calling mine babies at 2. My Mom still calls my kids the babies and they are 4 and 2.5

Once they start walking, they're no longer a baby.

My kids will always be my babies.  LOL

I generally refer to a child as a toddler when they are older than 1 but younger than 3.  I still call them babies though.

I'd say around 2 but as they get older it turns into, "Well, he/she is only 5 years old!" Sometimes we think our little kids understand more then they do in terms of time .bnm

1 mom liked this
Same with my twins, except they will be 3 in 2 weeks.

Quoting Mom2five87:

Idk. My twins are 2.5 years old and I still can't get out of the habit of referring to them as "the babies." lol. But I don't REALLY think they're babies. I guess I would say past the age of 1, they become toddlers.
