Because it's a more precise measurement of time.

And with babies, there's a lot of development that goes on within the first 2 years, so doctors and parents like to keep track of with more precise age markers like months instead of years. It's like when a woman is pregnant, doctors will measure it in weeks and not months since it's easier to track the development when you're more precise.
