What age do you consider a toddler to be a toddler?


Or is it less about age and more about ability?

I was having this discussion with my DH earlier today. Our baby is 1. She walks/runs everywhere, she is such a busy body. But she's 1. To me she is my baby. To DH she is a toddler because she (and I quote) "toddles around"

Is there a specific time they reach toddlerism? Am I just in denial? Or should I remain in the baby club section until I have a 2 year old

I think once they start walking they're a 'toddler' however I totally understand you saying she's a baby because a one year is still a baby to me

It's so hard! My kids walked at 9 and 10 months yet my nieces were over 17 months old before they walked so looked like toddlers so would still be classed as babies til that stage. For me when they are up walking about, independently playing, able to eat themselves and that sort that are technically toddler but still your baby. Heck my daughter is 3 and she still falls asleep on me sometimes and is still my.baby!

When my LO's hit 1 they moved onto the toddler charts and assessments for weight and were considered toddlers by the HV team. Mine have always been walking by 1 so yes, they are "toddling" but to me 1 is so little! My DD is 17 months old and still totally a baby in my eyes, even though I have accepted that she's a toddler really

This is how I officially designate titles. But my ds didn't walk until 16 months and I still thought of him as very baby like until 18 months or so. It was about then I felt more toddler behaviors and mannerisms picked up.

Officially it is 12 months. Mine have started walking at 14, 15.5 and 10.5 months. My 15 month old is the same size (or smaller) than the 10-12 month olds at play group. My girl was even smaller than him. Twins were saying around 6-8 words at this point and my singleton .... well I stopped trying to keep track a good 6 weeks ago when we were at around 35 and he is coming out with new words on an almost daily basis and that just counting the ones he uses correctly, not ones he randomly copies. Stringing 2 words together for over a month now. They are all so different, going by just walking and taking I wouldn't have classed my daughter as a toddler until 18 months but my youngest one at 11 months.

Probably at around 1 but I definitely still think of James as a baby!
