What are the numbers after DC?!

I think some people put DC1 meaning their first child.

And some people put DC1 meaning their child is 1 year old.

What is the correct way?!

DC1 = first / eldest child
DC(1) = child is aged 1

That's what I think anyway!

Once you get to about DC9 though it's usually safe to assume that's the age.

It's meant to be the birth order. So dd3 is the third born daughter.

I have seen people using ds13 and such though. I'm assuming they don't have 13 sons and it's the age!

Don't they usually say dd1 or dd 1 (so space)?

King You would think that but my DH's GP's had 21 kids so that wouldn't shock me.
