    we were workiing it out the other day as i was adamant my sofia was 5 months old and the OH wasn't.

    as usual he was right :wall:

    52 weeks in a year

    26 weeks = 6 months

    13 weeks = 3 months

    So I make that the 13th, tomorrow.

    Hi Sweetcheeks,

    You are assuming that 4 weeks = 1 month, which is almost never the case (except in non leap year Februarys).

    My baby was born on 29th July. She was 4 weeks old on 26th August, but one month old on 29th August at 4 weeks, 3 days. She was 8 weeks old on 23rd September and 2 months old on 29th September at 8 weeks, 6 days.

    You will see lots of NHS info on weaning mentions delaying weaning until at least 4 months/17weeks - i.e. 4 months does not equal 16 weeks (4 x 4 weeks) but more like 17 weeks+.

    I hope that makes sense. Your baby will be 3 months old on 14th October (Wednesday).

    Confusing, isn't it! If you'd like a ticker which counts in weeks, these are readily available at the usual ticker sites.

    Xxx

    The past 2 times I've been to babyclinic and they've asked me how many weeks Isaac is I've looked at them like :shock: :shock: :shock: it's very confusing sometimes, I've now wrote down Isaac's age in weeks on the calendar, so I don't get confused :lol: Monthly, your baby will be a month older every month on the birth date, so the 14th :hug: I think :lol:
