I'm planning on starting to wean my baby when he's 6 months, however do I go by the calendar months so 19th of the month when he was born, or when he is 24 weeks which is 2 weeks early that he 19th?! 🤔

It would be calendar months, I assume. However, there won't really be a difference so not something to worry about.

A month is not 4 weeks.

I'd go by the calendar.

Calendar month but 2 weeks won't make a difference

6 months is half a year so 26 weeks not 24 weeks.

6 months is 26 weeks. But two weeks won't matter. Pick whichever date is more convenient.
