How to count how old baby is?

Is it date to date or weeks like pregnancy?
Ex: I gave birth to my son 7/15
So by weeks he is 2 1/2 wks or do I go by the date of 8/15 to count as he's a month?
Sorry may sound dumb or may not make sense but I'm so curious.

Not a dumb question at all, I was wondering the same thing earlier cuz I gave birth on 7/7 but not sure if I go by weeks or months but I'd say months just cuz eventually our babies will be like 53 weeks old but we'll lose count by then lol

I would stick to weeks unail 1 month and then "about a month" "a month and a half" "almost two months" etc...

Ya it would probably be easier to do week by week until you can't keep track anymore, then go month to month.
