I think it's 1-3 years old but Thomas was a baby in my eyes until 17 months as he couldn't walk. Now he's 5.5 he's still a toddler as he functions at the 2-3 year old level developmentally even though chronologically he's now a child.
Its so weird because in Spanish there is no word for toddler, only baby, and then child. I've noticed the word baby can be used up to 2 or 3, especially when they still have nappies, drink their milk from bottles or possibly have a dummy. Another doctor told me that a baby is a baby when you talk about their age in months and not years, so if your LO is 19 months, he or she in Spain would be a baby.
I think people need to keep in mind the classification is based only on age and not levels of development.
I personally find it annoying when people say "oh my toddler.." and the kids in school and almost 5. No you don't have a toddler; you have preschooler. My friend is famous for that; drives me crazy. Lol you cannot claim your kids a toddler because they are misbehaving lol.
