If your baby was born on the 31st...

When are you considering them being the "next month old" when a month only has 30 days?

DD was born on March 31....but I feel like she doesn't really have a half birthday because there aren't 31 days in September.

  • My baby wasn't born on the 31st, but I would just consider it a month on the last day of each month. Happy 1/2 birthday to your LO!!

  • Mine was born April 30th, so I just count by the month.  She's 5 months old today.  It doesn't matter how many days each month has.

    You're missing the point. Her LO was born on the 31st and since not all months have a 31st it is not as obvious. This isn't like a week vs months questions. OP, I'd say she is 6 months on the 30th.

  • Happy 1/2 birthday!  Yay bithday buddies!  DS2 was born on March 31 too.  I take pictures every month so I am very familiar with this problem.  I usually document things on the 1st of the next month as it is what comes after the 30th just like the 31st would.  IMO counting the 30th is a day short regardless of being the end of the month.  Either way is fine though just whatever you pick you should be consistent since it happens every other month.
