Literal question
How old was (name) when he/she died?

How many months old was (Name)?
Interviewer instructions
This information is very important but interviewers must probe gently as women may not like talking about their dead children. Do  not leave this question blank.

Record the information in complete years if the child died after it was 2 year old, complete months if the infant died after it was one month old but not older than 2 years and complete days if the infant died before it reached a month old.
