Ok i'm a bit confused at the moment with the terms babies, bubs, toddlers, crawlers, children, infants.. etc etc!

Can anyone please tell me what's the Difference????!!!

babies & bubs? from 0 - to????
what do you call a baby from 1 to 2?
should we stop calling a baby, a baby once it's turning 2,3? or once it's turning 1? (or once the teeths start to pop out?)
How long can the term toddler be used for?

A crawler? what the heck is that? (i know it's a baby who crawls.. but do ppl actually call your baby a crawler? - ie: your crawler is so cute etc.. )


Very Frustrated with motherhood terms,
Choc

Choc, before we start getting bogged down in infantile semantics, the only reason you could be feeling clucky is if your biological clock has been set to Indonesian time.

Baby: A very young child (birth to 1 year) who has not yet begun to walk or talk.

Bubs: A cutesy way of saying baby.

Toddler: A young child, already starting to walk. Ankle-biter.

Crawlers: In English, this term is used to describe earthworms and sycophants. It is not generally used to describe babies or young children who crawl along the ground.

Child: A young person.

Infant: In medical terminology (such as "infant mortality"), a child up to 24 months of age. In some education systems, infants are defined as children from pre-school to grade 2 level.

How long can the term toddler be used for? You should never use this term. It is a distinctly ordinary word, used by the lower classes.

Should we stop calling a baby, a baby once it's turning 2,3....? When it stops shitting and pissing itself, and is capable of walking and talking.

Cukup jelas, except for the fact that so many girls here have became pregnant because of having cybersex with young Polar Bore.

Whereas I could be arsed, literally. I'll admit I have also had cybersex with Polar Bore. It was pretty good until my wig fell off and he realized I was a guy. At that point he angrily fucked me in the arse. There's no pleasing some people.
