How old were you when you had your first memory?

Because no person can remember their first memory.

There's different types of memories. There's ones that we can easily recall and others that are lost to us.

If you can't remember it...............wait for it................it's not a memory!

That is not to say it is not stored away in the dark recesses of your mind.
Storage and retrieval are separate processes, memory requires both.

I can go back to about four and a half or five, which seems to be typical, from my casual research.

It's not a memory if you don't remember it.

My first memory was around three and a half: it is very vague, but it was a car trip in Hawiwii. I think we were going up a mountain and I threw up in the car.

well, the older you are, the more you forget about your past.

I clearly remember being put to sleep in my bed when I was 8 or 9 months. That is the farthest back I can remember.

I have no idea how old I was, but my arms still had baby fat. I was crawling on the kitchen floor around a counter loosely holding a tiny tarnished brass rattle. The wood was kind of cheap and had a cheesy 80's finish on it (didn't know that at the time obviously) and the fridge was a slightly yellowish cream, on my right side. The floor I can't recall anymore. I recall being happy, pretty sure I would have been smiling and I crawling at a fair pace, and the rattle I had spiked my curiosity for some seconds but probably didn't compare to my need for speed, and it was discarded.

That's as far as I can remember.

Bingo. This is quite common. For me, it's my mom getting a phone call then starting to cry. JFK had been killed. I was 4 years, 8 months old.

One of my first memories was of a bad dream actually, it was the hamburgler (from McDonald's) but he was missing a leg. I wasn't older than 2.

I was about 9 months old. I was in my crib and my parents and other adults were laughing at me. We moved from that house when I was around 1 and I described the room to my parents.

The earliest memory that I can ascribe a date to happened right around my fifth birthday. There are other things that I remember before then, but I don't remember when they happened.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Yes they can, your "first memory" is the first moment you remember. Doesn't matter the age. Everyone has one.
