I was curious what ages on this group are considered the toddler years? My son is 28 months and I want to make sure I am posting in the right forum. Also, at what age would I move on to the Childhood years forum?
Agreed, I don't think there's an official range. I think from the age they start walking to 3 years, myself - or, if they have a developmental delay or disability (that would significantly delay when they start walking, or prevent them from walking at all), then I would probably count from 12 months to 3 years.
Thank you both for your replies. I assumed the cutoff would be around 3 to 4 but I see clothing at the stores for children and even the size 5 will have a T for Toddler on it so I just didn't know if toddlers stopped at 2 or before Kindergarten age.
I think of toddler as walking/12 mos. until they turn 3. Although some 3 yr. old issues seem to belong in the toddler forum, like potty training. I have a really hard time not considering a diapered child a toddler.
I use the issue/concern/topic, rather than the age, to help me decide in which forum I should post, particularly when the age seems borderline toddler/child. Potty learning often belongs in the toddler forum, especially when most parents initiate it. However, I suspect I may be posting in the Childhood forum when my now-35 month old is still requesting a pull-up for poops at age 5! (Just a little hunch I have about how that's gonna progress... )
