There are two flaws missed in this,

1) In the 7th book Harry reads the noat from his parents to Sirius, which says that Harry is riding around on a broom and that he is a todler, but in book 1 it says that when he appears on the doorstep he is merely a baby.

2) At the end of book 4, When they are leaving Hogwarts he says "Horseless carrages", but this was after he had wittnessed Cedric die, so he should be able to see the Thestrals pulling them.

First of all, in the future, when you have an issue that concerns one page in particular, it is better to post it on the talk page for that page.
Anyway, neither of those are mistakes. "Toddler" and "baby" are often used interchangeably in colloquial English, and Rowling has explained that the thing about Thestrals was done so as not to introduce a new plot point at the very end of a book and also gave an in-universe reason (it takes time to process a death after witnessing it to see them). -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 01:18, October 3, 2012 (UTC)
