  • Would you want and call your car to be 6 months (or so) old because it was started manufacturing back then? No?
    We start counting the age of the things when they're fully developed, including humans.

  • Because thats how old it is inside of the womb. We start counting age after a child takes their first breath outside of the womb.

  • They're in the womb for 10 months and your age starts from your birth date, the day you take your first breath of air and open your eyes for the first time.

    • Omg -.- kids these days... there's 4 weeks in a month kid. You asked so I answered your question. Bye now 👋😂

    • Hey! Play nice both of you!

  • Because the nervous system is one of the last to fully develop so a baby is not cognicent until they're born (the brain develops befor this happens obviously but they do not function completely on their own until birth)

  • Because they were nothing 9 months ago and they still wouldn't be something alive (with a soul) even at a certain number of months. I think

  • Because imagine having a nine month old baby coming out of a woman's vagina it would never go back to normal plus the baby has to have time to develop

  • It is because date of conception and date of birth are different. In technicalities a baby is 9 months old when born but since age is calculated from the start of birth they start as a newborn then progress from there. ~ MrsGrimm

  • Why isn't a cake a cake once in the oven? Because there's a process involved where it becomes a cake.
