“My child is 24 months” or “My child is 2 years old”? Pet peeve of mine to hear any “x months” after 11.

Never understood why this bothers people so much. Children develop very rapidly in infancy and toddlerhood. A few months make a huge difference...

OP do you have a child? If not, maybe withhold judgment until you do. I’d add that I say this as someone who doesn’t have children

Could you connect me with your pediatrician?

Agreed.

I have 3. They are 13 months, 28 months, and 40 months. Oh no! I contradicted myself. (I’m in a particularly immature mood this Monday afternoon)....yeah I mean it’s just something that bothers me, not so much that I can’t be around people that say it. Just something I personally don’t like.

I think it’s fair up to 2yo. Big difference between 12 months and 23 months. Kind of levels off after that.

That’s what is on your mind? 😔

I’m too tired to remember how old my son is so when someone else says it in months I get confused

I used to feel the same way. But development is measured in months until 2 years old. Plus that’s the way pediatricians talk so you get used to speaking that way. Agree it’s unnecessary once they hit 2 (although some classes like Gymboree still use months but at that point they should just say “up to 2 years and 3 months”)

All that matters is my child can kick your child’s ass. :)

Months is valuable thru 2 years, albeit perhaps not to people who don’t have children. But if I’m trying to sort out fellow dads for play dates, a 12 month vs 20 month old is a world of difference.

Months are also important for vaccines before age 2.

These are some very good responses. Only my stubbornness stands in the way of accepting you “monthers”.
