How can I display dates on my timeline rather than age?

You can choose whether your timeline shows the date of the content or the age of the child.

On Android devices, to switch between displaying age or date:

Step 1: If you have a single child displayed on your timeline, just tap on the age marker shown in the top right (see below).

Step 2: A 'fast scroll' banner drops down. Tap anywhere on that banner to toggle between age and date (see below).

Step 3: That's it, you're done! To switch back to age, repeats steps 1 & 2.

Note: If you have multiple children displayed on your lifecake, the date will be shown by default. If you wish to show age instead, first filter your timeline to show a single child, then follow steps 1 & 2 above.
