So here is a question for all you moms out there...
When you are pregnant, you count how many weeks pregnant you are...like 16, 24, or 41 (In my case - ha ha)...and by the way 40 weeks is actually 10 months, which I am sure all of you have been pregnant are well aware of, but for those who haven't!
Back to my story...so after the baby is born, do you count them in weeks or months old?? For the first few doctor visits, they schedule them for 2 weeks and 4 weeks out. After that, it is 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, etc.
The reason I ask is because my son was born on September 15th, so technically he would be 5 months old on February 15th...but if you were counting by weeks he would be 22 weeks or 5.5 months! Now I know that this doesn't really matter in the scheme of things, but I just had one of those moments! So I have made up some of my own guidelines...here it goes:
- 0-3 Months (0 to 12 weeks) the baby's age will be counted in weeks
- 3-24 Months the baby's age will be counted by months
- 24 Months+ the babies age will be counted in years
What do you think of my little system?
Have you ever thought about this before?
