good question. dh and I always argue this. He says Konner is an infant still...I say toddler. And he says Kady is a neonate but obviously she is an infant!

As long as you want! LOL I think it depends. Some babies don't even look like newborns when they are technically newborn. LOL Babies that are ten+ lbs and have lots of hair... Whereas some babes seem newborn-y longer.... Ahhhh.... My last one was a tiny babe, and he stayed newborn-y longer. Hold onto it!

I think it depends too, although I think I referred to DS as a newborn until he was 4ish months. Then again, I still hate to refer to him as a toddler even though he is.
