The age shown on my birthday ticker is wrong. How do I fix it?

Check that the birth date that you entered is correct, by following the steps for Editing or updating your ticker and checking the date on the Add details page.

If the birth date is correct, the age shown will be correct. It can look wrong because there isn't an even number of weeks in a month. The way it works on PitaPata is to count the number of months, and then divide the number of days remaining into weeks and days. The best way to check is visually on a calendar.

For instance, using a 2nd birthday ticker for a child born on the 9th of May, 2004, and looking at the ticker on the 25th June, 2005. On the 9th of June, the child was 1 year, 1 month old. There are 16 days between the 9th of June and the 25th of June so the ticker will display 1 year, 1 month, 2 weeks and 2 days.
