I think after 2-3 months. You will see some changes that make you think wow she is really a baby now... I call the newb stage the "blob" stage because the babies are kind of just taking in their surroundings, but not doing much yet. Soon they start looking around, reacting to things, and start to show more personality. I think that is when they begin to leave the newborn stage.

 In medical contexts, newborn refers to an infant in the first 28 days of life (from birth up to 4 weeks after birth, less than a month old).The term "newborn" includes premature infants, post-mature infants and full term newborns.

The term infant,  meaning "unable to speak" or "speechless." It is typically applied to children between the ages of 1 month and 12 months; however, definitions vary between birth and 3 years of age. "Infant" is also a legal term referring to any child under the age of legal adulthood

idk lol this sort of thing is a debate in our house.  I always called DD a baby and DH informed me yesterday she is NOT a baby anymore, she is a toddler (she is 13 months!).  I said aww no she's my baby lol

 I was always told between 2-3 months but I think when they can roll over because it is the start of being independent. :[ and D just got the hang of the rolling accross the floor too...I am sad :[
