I got the impression that this is the fault of marketing. Isn’t all the stuff made for newborns - from toys to clothing sizes to learning books - marketed in months instead of saying “a year and a half?” It’s more succinct copy to use numerals within the same parameter (months), and it takes up less space which means that it’s probably larger and easier to read on the packaging.
Usually month-labeled clothes go up to 24 months, which is where it gets confusing because there’s also size 2T.
Parents sometimes use months larger than 24 because a lot of people believe there are standard milestones at 30, 36, 42 months, etc. Which is largely bs of course, because there’s too much variety in kids to be able to label things like that.
It’s also because of how doctors refer to kids? Up to age 4 or so, they’re referred to by their month, not their year. So it’s an 18 month checkup, a 36 month checkup, etc.
yeah, it’s not a marketing thing, at least not directly, it’s a developmental. because kids grow develop so quickly when they’re young discussing things in terms of years is unreasonable. a 12mo is very different developmentally from a 15mo from a 9mo from a 6mo from an 18mo and so forth. this begins to level out between the ages of 3 and 5. so for doctors and parents alike speaking in months is necessary in order to track appropriate development and for clothing and toys speaking in months is necessary for sizing and age appropriateness. a toy might be too advanced for the average 12mo but completely appropriate for a 15mo because that’s just how quickly they grow and change.

HOLY FUCKING FUCK WOW <3
Beautifulawesome transformation — and I like the hair too :D
WOW. OUU. WOWW. WOAH.oooOOOuuUUU. WOAW. WAAW.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I love you Mara.
Mara is super awesome. I fell in love with her even more when I found out she chills with the Nostalgia chick (they went to high school together apparently?) and she does the voice for the old woman that secretly lives in your home in welcome to night vale.
this is what I’ve been waiting for all day
