Generally mothers like to go date to date. Although it's different on Leap Years, people tend to go date to date any way. Once they get older, how often do people actually stick to the exact age they really are with days, weeks and months. During their first year, we go by months, and as each year passes...well, don't we normally say 2 yrs old or 2 1/2 yrs old even if we're off by a few months. So again, I would go date to date because we usually have the same amount of days per month each year except for Leap Years.

It is only complicated for mums with children born on feb 28th of a leap year, the months are always the same: Jan 31-Feb30-March31..... and so forth.

huh?? every month on the 17th my son turns a month older so on weds he will be 9 months and on June 17th he will be a year , that's when he turns one, 365 days after he was born. I'm sorry I know it's late and Im tired but I really don't understand what you are asking??
