    Default When do you stop counting your baby's age in weeks?

    I was just wondering when you should stop counting your baby's age in weeks and start using month to month?

    I think the rule of 2: count in hours until 2 days, count in days until 2 weeks, count in weeks until 2 months, count in months until 2 years.

    This except I've never counted in hours. I've seen some people still referring to their children as 32 months (as an example) just say your child is 3! Haha

    I have never counted hours either.

    I stopped counting weeks at 16 weeks. I still count months for my boy he is now 15 months. But when my other boys turned 2 I stopped that. Never counted hrs but I did count days prob to about 2 weeks.

    I did weeks til 12 weeks, then months til 18 months, then half years til 4, then full years

    If someone tells me their child is 22 weeks old, or 34 weeks old I have NO idea how old they are. But if they say 9 months it makes a lot more sense.

    I think after 16weeks.

    After then people started doing it for me (I'd say 17 weeks, theyd say 'so.. About 4 months)

    I still count in months (DD is 27 months) but that's because I think there is a big difference between 24 mnths & 35 months. Both are technically 2yo's, but in terms of development, understand & discipline, they need vastly different approaches.
