This is hard my DD is 15 months and been walking since 10 months and so yes she is a toddler but she is also diddy (9-12m clothing) so she is still my baby

DS he is 3 (just) and at preschool so he is a preschooler but he is still only really a toddler but he is big for his age (size 4 clothing) so people think he should be acting much older than his age

BOTH my babies as far as I am concerned and always will be

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.

Yes please!

That's exactly how I see her! She's so diddy she's still in 6-9 month sleepsuits I'm not ready to have a toddler yet
Gracie is still in some 3-6m clothes and plenty 6-9m, she's still in newborn socks or 0-3m, but she's 16 months. I classed her as a toddler from 12m

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.

Under 24 months is referred to as a baby in medical reports or media. I don't know if there is an official 'toddler age'.

My kids still seem like babies to me until I see a tiny newborn that makes them look like giants, lol.

Yes, this! I still see her as tiny but then I see a newborn and think it must be premature or something since they are so small!

My youngest is 15 months, she has been mobile for months and months now.
Crawled at 8 months, Cruised & Climbed at 9 months and Walked at 11 months.

But I still see her as a baby. When i think of a toddler i think or a 2-3year old.
