Baby's Age in Months Lock Rss

Hi, this is my first ever posting in a chat environment but just discovered the site and think its a great idea. Could someone just clarify for me whether "5 months old" means 20 weeks or the same day as their birth 5 months on? Looking forward to chatting lots more over the coming months.

Hi Emma's Mum, How 5 months is calculated is 5 months for the date your child was born. So if your child was born on the 01.01.02 then on the 01.02.02 they will be 1 month old, on the 01.03.02 2 months old, 01.04.03 3 months old and so on. This way they are in alignment for when they are 1 which as you know is 12 calendars months from the day they were born in this case on the 01.02.03 I hope this makes sense.
Thanks so much Janene. It seems so obvious the way you put it!

Thanks again,

Hi Emma's Mum

Thank you for addressing that question,
as I've been wandering about age in months
since my 3mth old son was born.
Now I know.
