    OH said it's exactly 4 weeks but I think it's different.:wacko:
    Is it 4 weeks or because my LO was born on 4th May, does that mean she'll be a month old on 4th June? :shrug:

    At first I went with the "technical" 4 weeks exactly thing, but the whole weeks/month thing gets confusing fast. So now I just use the date she was born on (the 13th) to count months by.

    I usually count her age in weeks. But LO was born on 5th Feb so on 5th June I'll consider her 4 months old.

    Yeah on the 4th otherwise at a year you would be calling her 13months old x

    The only month that is exactly 4 weeks long is February - all of the others are 4 and a bit weeks.

    So a month is the time between a certain date (e.g 4th May) and the same day of the following month (4th June)

    If you count 4wks as a month that would make 13 months in a year xx

    Fran was born on Friday 28th January. She was 17 weeks old last Friday (27th May) and then 4 calendar months the next day (Sat 28th May).
