ok, so i just have a question really.....

When does your baby stop being a baby? When are they considered a toddler??

The only reason I'm asking is I have been having an argument about this with my aunt! lol

they are supposedly toddlers when they can walk. but to me, my 3 yr old is still a baby and all my babies after him. (22 mos old and a 4.5 weeker)

I don't judge you for doing it, it's just not for us.

Baby is a baby from birth to 18 months.

Toddler is 18 months to 3 years old.

Preschooler is 3 years to when they start kindergarten.

School-age is kindergarten to 6th grade.

This according to my mom, who used to work as a lead infant teacher at a daycare center.

thats funny because i use to work at a daycare and as long as they were drinking from a sippy cup and walking when they turned 1 yr they were sent to the toddler room because they were considered toddlers. lol..

Hmm.  Weird.  Different states, maybe?  I've heard that that stuff varies from state to state.

Oh well.  :)

I consider mine toddlers as soon as they can "toddle" around.  LOL!  Once they're walking, I consider them toddlers.
