I need to be able to enter a date without a year

I’m working on an app to keep records for a children’s club. We try to get their birthdays, but sometimes they don’t know the year they were born. Is there a way to enter only the month and day?

Ultimately I want to use the date to calculate the age, but I can have a check box to test if the date isn’t complete. Alternately, maybe I can use the age if we know it to calculate the year.

I would like ideas for the best way to handle this. Thank you.

You could create 3 different fields (Month, Day, and Year), and just leave the Year field blank when you don’t know what it is.

Short of any other ideas, I may enter the month and day in fields, then use them along with the age to calculate the year and enter all of them in the date field.
