I go by the day. My dd was born on July 10th so on Oct. 10 she will be 4 months. This is also how they do shot updates. I would not be able to schedule her to get her 4 month shots until the 10 or later.

It is confusing to me too. My LO is 14 weeks today but he was born July 26th. If someone asks, I always tell them how many weeks he is.

that's what I do too...and I was counting every 4 wks as a month...my little guy was born 7/31, so, if I count every 4 wks as a month till his first b-day, he will be 13 months on his birthday...so, I think we should count a month on the day he was born. I was thinking my baby was 3 months on the 23rd of Oct., but doing it the other way, he just turn 3 months yesterday...so confusing! lol

Yep I do the same thing as Olivetre I count by months based on what the Doctors office does with the shots plus it is just easier to say 4 months instead of 24 weeks LOL for some reason people cannot calculate that I use to do that when i was pregnant I would say I am 16 weeks and they would say so how many months is that LOL
